Offering on-line counselling services to residents of British Columbia and Nova Scotia.

Do you have responses that seem out of alignment with a triggering event, or emotions coming from unknown places, lingering uncomfortably long? Are you or your loved one navigating addiction, recovery, or a mental health condition? Are you curious about developments in the field of psychedelic medicine, or have questions about psychedelic harm-reduction and integrative meaning making? Perhaps you are having internal conflicts with your self, your identity, allyship and settler status, or life/work direction? Or maybe you just need a confidential, nonjudgmental, supportive space to express yourself?

My experience in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside community and services, and my own healing journey have given me a deep acceptance towards the creative ways we cope, and how these affect us. I work from an anti-oppressive stance and a neurobiological perspective of trauma, foregrounding relational attachment, internal family systems, and the inner-child.

Starting personal work with the help of counselling can seem daunting and may bring up uncomfortable sensations and emotions. It’s hard to be vulnerable and open up to your self. I offer a safe, confidential, nonjudgmental space where you can get out of your head by unpacking what’s in there. I’ll meet you where you’re at, and we’ll go from there, together.
