I believe that the experiences we have in our inner and outer world teach us something about the world, ourselves, and others; and they contribute to the forming of often unconscious patterns in the way we think, feel, and act. These experiences can even be stored in the body/nervous system, otherwise known as trauma. In other words, our experiences help create a “map” that show us how to navigate uncertainty, relationships with others, and relationships with our selves. I believe that people come to therapy when those 'maps' are no longer working and need updating. That's where I come in!
I integrate perspectives from humanistic, existential, and psychodynamic theory which inform my understanding of where certain problems come from and what to do about it. I am also trained in two robust trauma modalities: Lifespan Integration and Observed Experiential Integration.
If you are tired of feeling stuck and exhausted from what you're experiencing, and are interested in reducing your anxiety, enjoying your relationships, finding self-acceptance, and moving forward; then feel free to check out my website and book a free consultation!
Please inquire directly about counselling coverage through CVAP and/or FNHA.
Want to learn more about this service’s work with Two-Spirit, trans, LGBQ+ people?
We invite all service providers listed on MindMapBC to answer the following questions. These questions were developed in collaboration with community members, researchers, and mental health and other service providers. They're intended to help us understand what a service provider or organization is doing to affirm and support sexual and gender diverse service users.
See below for responses for this listing.
Want to learn more about our screening questions and filters?
Do you collect and use preferred names (rather than legal names) for all communications?
I only use the name that people write down for themselves.
Are the forms used in your practice inclusive of various sexual orientations and gender identities (e.g., opportunities to fill in pronouns, etc.)?
Do you and your colleagues ask about pronouns and use them appropriately?
Yes, there is a question about pronouns that my associate and I ask in every intake session.
Are you and your colleagues aware of what specific barriers may exist for trans individuals accessing your services?
—Yes, to some extent
I think there is still a lot that I am not fully aware of in how barriers may exist for trans individuals in accessing our services.
Are you and your colleagues aware of what specific barriers may exist for Two-Spirit individuals accessing your services?
I think there is even more that I am not aware of in how barriers may exist for trans individuals in accessing our services. I have not received much meaningful education on Two-Spirit individuals.
Do you offer Indigenous 2S/LGBTQ+ specific resources, for example Indigenous Elders or Knowledge Keepers?
Are you and your colleagues comfortable asking relevant questions about gender identity and sexual orientation?
Are you and your colleagues aware of what specific barriers may exist for LGBQ individuals accessing your services?
—Yes, to some extent
Can you and your colleagues distinguish gender/identity dysphoria/distress from mental health conditions?
—Yes, to some extent
I believe I could to an extent, although I haven't received any formal education on delineating between these.
Does your practice have gender-neutral washrooms?
Are there clear anti-discrimination policies that include gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation in your organization or practice?
Are all individuals involved in service provision actively engaged in decolonizing their practices and/or organization? If yes, please type below what actions you and/or your organization are taking.
Every week at our staff meeting we engage in professional development, including work towards decolonizing/anti-racism.
Are all individuals involved in service provision actively engaged in anti-racist practices, policies, and systems in their care model?
