How We Can Help

We support people from 12+ who are recovering from or currently experiencing violence or abuse, have experienced childhood trauma, struggle with anxiety and/or depression, are transitioning or have a family member who is transitioning, need anger management tools, help processing grief, or who need support exploring their sense of self.

What To Expect?

A Loving Space To Share Confidentially

Counselling is a collaboration. We aren’t here to tell you what to do, or judge your choices. Instead we work with you to help you achieve change where you feel change is needed. You can go as deep into your story as you feel or keep focused on problem solving day-to-day stressors. While we will make suggestions and occasionally call out some contradictions (with love of course). Ultimately, you are in the driver’s seat. 

  • We Work At Your Pace

  • Respect Your Choices

  • Focus On Your Strengths

  • Support and affirm your gender and sexual orientation

  • We support the integration of cultural and spiritual practices into sessions 


We provide in-person (Fernie Only), virtual & phone sessions. We respect and share our deepest gratitude to the Ktunaxa peoples whose homelands we are honoured to live and work.

Life can be very challenging at times and ensuring you have the support you need to make it through the ups and downs is important. I am passionate about building connections with, and providing  support to, individuals and families who have experienced complex trauma, relationship challenges,  self-esteem challenges, gender transitions, and grief. I take a collaborative and integrated approach to help clients find healing and symptom reduction.
