My training and years of experience:

The past 10 years have been dedicated to studying the human body, psyche, relationships and all the various ways in which we connect to ourselves and the world around us. I hold a Doctorate in Traditional Chinese Medicine, providing services as an Acupuncturist, Herbalist, body-worker in Nelson BC and on Vancouver island. I am devoted to the ongoing study counselling psychology (graduate diploma in psych/counselling 2022) and committed to developing sustainable strategies for resilient inner-cultivation. I currently volunteer weekly at the Nelson Cares Society HUB (drop-in center) in Nelson as an AcuDetox Specialist, and also at the Nelson Womens Center as a peer-counsellor.

My style, focus and what I offer to clients:

My style is collaborative, non-judgemental, person-centered and compassionate. I focus on somatic therapies that are intuitive and solution-focused to bring about long-lasting, meaningful results. We can work together to prevent, remediate and ameliorate emotional, cognitive, behavioural, and interpersonal difficulties you may be experiencing while enhancing your innate human potential and overall quality of life. I can weave in as much or as little Traditional Chinese Medicine theory as is helpful, and can prescribe medicinal herbs that compliment and support the inner work we do together. 

In-person? Zoom? Phone? Text?:

What is most comfortable and convenient for you? I offer counselling services in-person at Santé clinic (Nelson), through home-visits for people unable to commute, or together outside in nature (walk ’n talk). I also offer tele-health services through zoom or over the phone. All by appointment only.

If sessions are in-person, the geographic area I serve:

I primarily work in Nelson.

I will provide service at - No Cost? Low Cost?:

Beyond the initial pro bono requirements (one pro bono client/year or 10 pro bono sessions/year), I will provide service at a sliding scale of $35-50 per session.
