I completed my B.A. in Gender/Women's studies at Western University, and have an M.A. in Counselling Psychology from the University of Victoria. I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) certified by the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). I have completed two years of training in Somatic Experiencing and am continuing to learn and deepen my relationship with this body of knowledge.
Equally important in shaping my work as a counsellor is my lived experience. I identify as queer, a mother, a dancer, and a meditator. Over decades, I've worked with others in my communities to create more possibilities for healing, resilience, and liberation. I believe deeply in making kinship—with all the parts of ourselves, with other people, with other beings. I am in love with mystery, and seek to engage it through attention and curiosity.
