I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Registered Speech-Language Pathologist. I have a Master’s degree in Counselling from City University of Seattle and a Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology from Loma Linda University. I have worked in the school system for 12 years helping children overcome communication challenges. I have recent experience counselling adults struggling with substance use and a variety of mental health challenges. I currently work in private practice where I support people in their journey toward emotional healing, personal exploration, and self-discovery. I co-facilitate a monthly psychedelic integration group and am involved in the MAPS MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy Phase III study in Vancouver, B.C.
How I work with clients
I use a collaborative, trauma-informed, and integrative approach. I offer a safe and accepting space for those who may be curious about, preparing for, or have previously experienced altered states of consciousness. I recognize that psychedelic experiences can sometimes be confusing and disorienting and I believe that integration is important to understand and process challenging feelings that may emerge. I can also help you introduce grounding and self-care practices into your life and empower you to integrate new insights and ‘teachings.’
