& EMDR COUNSELLING, EDUCATION, AND COACHING
I BELIEVE IN YOUR ABILITY TO EVOLVE & GROW
I’ve been in the thick of the confusion & frustration when it comes to establishing and nurturing healthy relationships and I’ve come out on the other side.
For years I struggled to navigate romantic relationships which led me to explore psychology and counselling.
It wasn’t until I actually started to practice counselling that I realized how great it feels to support others as they work through similar issues. Once I shifted my focus to learning how to nurture healthy romantic relationships and found myself in a position to help others apply this knowledge did I truly embark on my own journey of healing.
As I worked to heal my wounds and unlearn unhealthy patterns, I uncovered a passion for understanding how people relate to one another and the world through a research-backed approach, rather than through trial and error. As a result, I did all the things I now introduce my clients to such as EMDR and couples counselling.
I selfishly wanted to learn anything and everything I could about relationships simply to avoid going through more heartbreak in my own life.
I continue to participate in these practices because I’m all about practicing what I preach! This allows me to also stay on the cutting edge of these therapies so I can offer the most up-to-date strategies and best practices.
I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of British Columbia, and my Master’s of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Adler University where I wrote my thesis on the benefits of premarital therapy (so I’d like to say I know a thing or two about it!).
Fast-forward to todaY:
I specialize in helping individuals and couples build strong relationships that can stand the test of time. I also offer full-spectrum support and work extensively with anxiety, low mood, lack of confidence, and boundary setting.
Together, we can explore what’s possible so that you can have a rich and meaningful romantic relationship. I aim to help you reach your goals by encouraging you to work through any blocks using evidence-based methods beyond talk therapy.
