As a therapist, it’s my honour to walk alongside you and support you through life’s transitions.
I specialize in working to support folks who have experienced trauma as well as working with moms, moms-to-be, and parents.
I hold a Masters of Counselling Psychology, Bachelor of Fine Arts, and a number of continuing education certificates. I’ve spent much of my formal education specializing in women’s mental health, aiming to provide meaningful support to diverse groups of women.
As a mom to a toddler, I’m beautifully busy and understand striving to achieve life/work balance. A lifetime ago, pre-motherhood, I was an arts + culture worker, a dancer, and an educator.
I am grateful to live on sacred stolen land, stewarded by generations of Indigenous Peoples including Syilx (Okanagan), snʕickstx tmxʷúlaʔxʷ (Sinixt), Ktunaxa ɁamakɁis, Ĩyãħé Nakón mąkóce (Stoney), Cayuse, Umatilla and Walla Walla, Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, and Metis Region III.
My journey into becoming a counsellor began with a genuine desire to help people navigate life changes and challenges. I developed a special interest in working with new moms, birthing people, parents, and couples. Witnessing clients cultivate self-care and self-compassion while navigating the complexities of these transformative stages of life bring me incredible joy, and it is an honour to walk this journey alongside you.
My foundation is rooted in validation & support from an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, strengths-based and person-centred lens. With a warm and gentle nature, I create a nurturing space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and challenges. Know that whatever you bring into a session will be met with understanding, compassion, and without judgement.
More than anything, I believe that you are the expert of your own experience, you steer the course.
I will meet you where you are at and together we’ll co-create the journey every step of the way. Your unique and individual needs will guide our process, and could include practical tools, trauma processing, exploration of grief and loss, and navigating identity and relationships. Other aspects I integrate into my practice include self compassion, systemic relational feminism, and family systems.
Whether confronting hard journeys, heartbreaking loss, relationship challenges, or the unique rollercoaster and transitions of motherhood, my hope is that you’ll leave every session feeling seen, heard, hopeful, and a little lighter.
