I am a somatic attachment psychotherapist and EMDR therapist
I am currently not accepting new clients till May 2024.
I am a registered clinical counsellor with the BCACC and a somatic attachment 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 specialize in long term therapy healing by unpacking deep routed childhood trauma and navigating where current triggers originated from.
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.
