I am Registered Clinical Counsellor located in Comox, British Columbia. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology.
I am passionate about helping my clients understand and regulate their emotions, set and maintain boundaries in all types of relationships, and deepen self-awareness to identify personal values and create balance in their lives. I work with people experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, burnout, and life transitions including navigating new parenthood and post-partum mental health.
I take a strengths-based, client-centered approach and work through a trauma-informed lens to collaborate with my clients in a way that allows them to safely expand their understanding of themselves and how their past experiences affect their current reality. I pull from a variety of modalities including CBT, DBT, ART, and EMDR.
Prioritizing yourself is difficult and starting counselling can feel scary. My goal is the make the process less intimidating and more inviting. Please reach out by e-mail to schedule a free, no pressure, 15-minute phone consultation to see if it feels like a good fit.
