A Turning Point: Why I do what I do?


I began a career in counselling after experiencing a significant battle with my mental health after the birth of our fourth child. I developed postpartum depression and anxiety. In my exhaustion and through treatment, I, often, felt the sting and stigma experienced by others when facing mental health issues. The depletion that came with the depression sent me into the office of a therapist who journeyed along with me in my recovery. This was where I learned that I could recover, that I was going to be ok and that I was not alone in my suffering. The trust, acceptance, and empathy, I experienced were critical to my healing. I knew I was not alone in my pain and that was deeply meaningful.
 
My greatest desire is to create a similar space where others feel safe to process the areas of life that keep them stuck, depressed, anxious and unsettled. I am a holistic therapist and believe that healing and wholeness come through the mind, body, and spirit. I am deeply grateful for the counselling relationship I have had, and this positive experience shaped my desire to acquire my counselling degree.
 

 The Journey: Each step counts


I originally began my career as an elementary school teacher obtaining my Bachelors of Education degree from the University of Victoria. After teaching for a few years, I took a hiatus from work outside the home to welcome and care for our four children. As the kids moved into middle school, I returned to school and acquired my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology.
 
I like to work in collaboration with my clients to process and establish the goals of their therapeutic work. I attend ongoing professional development and continually seek out scientifically and clinically proven approaches to counselling work. My passion is to walk with my clients as they experience transformation. The journey involves being with another, primarily, because we should never go to these dark places alone. 
 

My Hope: How I practice  


My hope is that you experience freedom from old patterns of relating to the world, learn to express difficult emotions, challenge limiting beliefs and create more meaningful life experiences. I work within this approach using emotion focused, experiential and attachment based therapies. I, also, have Level 1 training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, (AEDP).
 
Through my training and personal experiences, I know the relationship with your counsellor is key to the counselling process. This is why I offer the free consultation. If we are not a fit, I am happy to refer you to another counsellor that might suit you better. 
 
I offer individual and couples counselling focussing on issues related to:
  • life transitions (divorce, marriage, parenting, school)
  • self-esteem and assertiveness
  • relationships and healthy attachment
  • trauma
  • anxiety and stress
  • emotional regulation
  • depression
  • personal and spiritual growth
