Counsellor & Owner

RCC # 19049

EMDR Therapist

I am a registered clinical counsellor with the BCACC and a psychotherapist in private practice specializing in a variety of areas. I specialize in ADHD, trauma, relationship issues, life transitions, grief & loss, anxiety, and depression. I incorporate mindfulness practices as well as somatic pieces in my sessions which can help with other wellness issues for both individuals and couples.

I strive to provide a counselling space that fosters safety, encourages growth, and supports each individual’s innate healing potential. I value allyship with Indigenous and 2SLGBTQ+ communities.​ I have experience working with individuals with childhood trauma, individuals experiencing domestic violence, and individuals living with anxiety, depression, and self-harm. These experiences have all come together to ignite a deep appreciation for the power of community and the importance of connection. I have a strong passion for deepening our learning and finding support for healing through mindfulness. 

Why did I create Healing Waves

I created healing waves counselling because I hope to provide people with a different type of healing experience

 

We live in such a fast-paced society where we are constantly striving to compete, do better, and make more money that we forget to be present.

 

I want people to be able to work through their trauma and have them feel comfortable in their own skin

 

I want to reconnect people with themselves, reconnect with nature and the earth. Reconnecting to the environment and our surroundings can be so healing and grounding.

 

I am here to walk with the client side by side on their journey. They are the experts of their own lives. I am here to hold space for them and walk with them. I am not there to push or pull them but simply to be there with them.

 

I want the client to feel safe. Having a space where one feels safe will allow our body to open up.
