Registered Clinical Counsellor and Group Care Leader, MA, RCC
I have been a registered clinical counsellor since 2008, residing and working on the stolen lands of Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. For the first ten years of my career I worked primarily with Callanish Society, a non-profit organization, where I supported individuals and families through trauma, cancer, end of life, and grief.
It was following the birth of my second child in 2018 that I felt called to shift my counselling focus to supporting individuals and couples transitioning to parenthood, and raising families.
In my counselling work I hope to reflect my core values of empathy, curiosity, and a strong commitment to collective healing and community building. As a white cisgender woman and therapist trained in Western Psychology, I recognize the biased and harmful ways that white supremacy, colonialism, and cis-hetero-patriarchy, have influenced my worldview and provided me with unfair privilege and advantage. I recognize the historical and ongoing harms these oppressive systems cause marginalized communities, particularly for BIPOC and LGBTQIA2S. I am committed to unlearning and dismantling these oppressive systems within myself, and in my counselling practice, and will do my part to make counselling a safer space for everyone, especially people who are made marginalized.
I am grateful to work with the interdisciplinary team at South Community Birth Program. Together, we offer a safe and supportive space for expecting mothers, their partners, and new parents to explore the myriad emotions that accompany this profound experience. I look forward to working with you and learning from one another.
