Online therapy

I’m a registered clinical counsellor in Vancouver, BC providing individual psychotherapy and group therapy to adults. During the pandemic, my work is done through online therapy.

LGBTQ2IA-Centred

My highest aim is to provide a safe and welcoming practice for anyone who self-identifies as LGBTQ2IA+. You may need to discuss issues related to gender and sexuality, or you may need to talk about something else entirely.

You're free to be yourself, here.

Trauma-informed

As a sexual assault counsellor at a local rape crisis centre and a registered provider of BC’s Crime Victims Assistance Program (CVAP), I offer evidence-based trauma-informed therapy to lessen the impact of harm.

Online Therapy

Telehealth by video provides the safest choice for psychotherapy during pandemic restrictions on meeting in person. My practice provides PIPEDA compliant, confidential, and convenient counselling by video through Jane App.

Meeting online keeps us safe.

Feel like yourself again & live your most authentic life

My eclectic approach helps you feel more connected to yourself by exploring your needs, wants, values, strengths, and areas of growth. I help you work through what’s in the way of affirming these vital parts of you. When you feel more connected to yourself, your life improves, and concerns such as anxiety and depression are relieved. We’ll work together to identify the best ways to meet your goals in therapy, and I’ll offer support as you start to notice what’s keeping you from your most authentic life.
 
As a trans and queer therapist, I help older teens and adults as they question their own gender identity, gender expression, and sexuality. My background in trauma therapy is key to helping individuals transform the impact of past harm into present-day hope. I also work well with anyone who feels panicked, stuck, or too tired to go on.
 
The choice to enter therapy is often a big one. Please contact me by email or call (778) 302-3187 when you have questions about my practice or you’re ready to begin. My sliding scale waitlist is full. Typical wait time for online therapy is two weeks.

Queer-focussed therapy

I aim is to provide a safe and welcoming space for clients who identify as lesbian, gay, bi, trans, Two Spriit, queer, intersex, asexual, nonbinary, and agender. I hold space for challenges related to coming out, acceptance, inclusion, partnerships, healing past harms, and sexual health. I often see clients with complex mental health concerns. And I cheer on clients as they find their own way to truth, wisdom, and hope.

An ethical practice

I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC #18118) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. This means I’ve met the highest education and practicum training standards in BC. It also means I govern myself and my online therapy practice according to BCACC’s codes of conduct and ethics. Visit BC-Counsellors.org for details.

A body-centred approach

Formerly a massage therapist for more than two decades, I’ve cultivated a keen interest in how the body alleviates psychological issues. That’s what motivated me to learn Sensorimotor Psychotherapy®. I’ve completed advanced studies in trauma and dissociation. Now I’m working on certification with Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute.
