Trauma & Abuse

Anxiety & Depression
Do you feel like your life has changed a lot in the last little while? Maybe you feel like you have had a loss of a dream of what you thought life was going to look like because of certain event(s) that you were not prepared for. This can cause anxiety and insecurity within us, and a loss of relationship with who we thought we were. It may even be affecting your external relationships, with family, friends and co-workers.
I understand. I typically describe trauma as being something that happened to you that you were not prepared for or anticipating, and it changed your life in a way that sets you off your previously set course for a while, and maybe even permanently. This can be anything from losing a beloved pet, to a car accident, to being a survivor of an abusive relationship.
What can be the scariest result of surviving a traumatic or abusive experience is the feeling that you are alone, and that nobody else can truly understand you, let alone what you have been through. I have walked that road in my personal life, and alongside many other survivors. There is hope.
I believe that the counselling relationship is one of the most important components to success in therapy. There is something about meeting with someone who can hold out hope for you when you feel lost, and helping you navigate the changes that you are wanting to make in your life. I would love to be that person for you.
I am registered as a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#15185) through the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors and as a Canadian Certified Counsellor (#10001037) through the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association. I am also registered to provide counselling services through the BC Criminal Victims Assistance Program (CVAP) which provides those that have survived a crime to receive professional counselling either for free or at an extremely reduced rate. I can also provide counselling if you are approved by your ICBC case worker.
I have also taken training outside of my Masters degree. I provide the opportunity to utilize EMDR therapy in session. This is a scientifically (and personally) proven therapy that is very effective with those that have survived trauma, are experiencing anxiety, or are feeling stuck.
I have completed Level 2 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and have also had training in Emotionally Focused Therapy. These two therapies help me to provide a grounded approach to your relational issues.
