Bonjour! Bienvenue!

Thank you for visiting and for considering my services........I welcome you to read my bio and if you have any questions about my background or practice, please drop me a message below. I grew up in Quebec, where I obtained a diploma in Arts & Communications and moved to Revelstoke, BC in 2008,  after completing my Bachelor's Degree in Outdoor Adventure Tourism. I’ve been here ever since as I am grateful for the life it affords me!

I’m inspired by my connections with people and believe that every person holds infinite potential. I view life as a journey of a thousand experiences which are shaped by our perceptions. As a result, I chose to complete my Masters of Counselling Psychology Degree at Yorkville University in 2021 and later registered with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) as an Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC).

I am a trauma-informed therapist and continually evolve as I expand my skillset by taking ongoing trainings related to healthy attachment, parts work, somatic techniques and nervous system regulation. I am an EMDR Therapist and a Hypnotherapy Trauma Specialist. My practice addresses depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, shame, guilt, dissociation and I integrate approaches, in order to ensure that they resonate with my clients as they move towards changing unhelpful, recurring patterns. Further, I aim to support clients as they navigate life transitions, chronic pain, stress, low self-esteem and identity struggles. My intention is to help you release fear or worry, regain your authentic self and unleash your full potential.

Nurturing our Mental Health is an incredible gift that we can offer ourselves.

My Practice Delivered in French & English 

I provide a welcoming, non-judgmental space filled with empathy and unconditional positive regard. I implement various treatment approaches including EMDR Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Somatic/Body Awareness and Hypnosis. As I work with you, we will develop a treatment plan collaboratively that is based on your needs, personality, preferences and interests.

I strive to work with my clients’ uniqueness and provide you with tailored approaches that will empower you to achieve goals successfully. Together, with my your guidance, we will expand your “emotional intelligence toolbox” by exploring and practicing emotion regulation strategies, soothing skills, healthy communication and relational patterns. If you are looking for relationship guidance, support navigating a life transition and identity challenges, I will provide you with tools that will help you overcome any symptoms of anxiety, depression, strong emotions and/or trauma responses. I can also support you as you navigate grief, stress, burnout or chronic pain.

Couples Counselling

An integral part of my practice entails supporting couples as they develop secure, healthy, respectful attachment relationships. In order to do this, I utilize experiential methods from evidenced-based modalities, rooted in neuroscience, attachment theory and the biology of human arousal. The approaches that I have found effective as I work collaboratively with couples  include Psychobiological Approaches to Couples Counselling (PACT), Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and The Gottman Method.
