I take a mind-body approach to rewriting trauma stories and to do this I use Somatic Experiencing™, an approach to healing developed by Peter Levine. So why do I do this? I have my own trauma story and I have experienced the profound changes that can happen when the nervous system is introduced as a central character. My goal is to assist you in gently returning to a state of healthy regulation where you can attune to yourself, others and the world around you while feeling safe. My hope on our journey together is that my curiousity reignites your curiousity.
I have some credentials for all this great work. I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) candidate and will complete the two and a half year training program in March 2018. I hold a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) and am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors.
I also understand the effects trauma and its symptoms can have on work. I hold a subspecialty in vocational rehabilitation and am a Registered Rehabilitation Professional (RRP) with the Vocational Rehabilitation Association of Canada (VRA), and a Certified Vocational Rehabilitation Professional (CVRP) with the College of Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals.
