Welcome! I am a Nanaimo-based Counselor, and was born and raised on the beautiful West Coast of British Columbia. I completed my Masters in Counseling Psychology from the University of Victoria, and have done 2-year trainings in Somatic Transformation and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I've been fortunate to work at the Haven Society in the field of ending violence in relationships, where I deepened my understanding of the neuroscience behind trauma, and its effects on the body.
I have worked with hundreds of clients from all walks of life to recover from the impacts of trauma and abuse, and to rediscover their innate potential. As clients become empowered, develop healthy boundaries, and heal core wounds, they usually experience a natural boost in self-esteem. All of these changes allow for clients to experience richer relationships, increased vitality, and a deeper sense of inner peace.
