Holistic Therapeutic Support
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~ Anais Nin
My counselling and art therapy practice is located both in Vancouver and on the Sunshine Coast in Gibsons, BC. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Art Therapist with a wide range of experience in supporting children, youth, and adults in a culturally sensitive fashion. I encourage you to meet with me to discuss your, or your child’s, needs and to see if my way of working and being are a good fit. I believe that we all have ways of knowing that are intellectual, spiritual, emotional, intuitive and sensory. Tapping into those ways sometimes needs guidance along with space, time, a safe place and permission. I hope to help you blossom into your true self and live consistently with your values by exploring thoughts, feelings, ideas, interpretations, values and beliefs.
You are a whole person with emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual aspects. And all these aspects are interconnected. My therapeutic approach with you will be founded on a strong collaborative alliance that will allow you to feel safe and cared for. I promise to listen non-judgmentally, explore creative solutions, challenge you, ask the right questions, and offer a fresh alternative perspective. We will decide together the most suitable path for your healing, wellness, and transformation.
I specialize in supporting individuals impacted by grief and loss, anxiety, life transitions, substance misuse, relational conflict, trauma, and psychiatric diagnoses such as borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder.
