“It takes one to stand in the darkness alone, it takes two to let the light shine through.” Dr. Peter Levine.


I am a BCACC Approved Clinical Supervisor with over 23 years of clinical experience working in the mental health field with adults and children. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and a Registered Social Worker. I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Northern British Columbia and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Infant-Parent Mental Health from the University of Massachusetts, Boston. My practice is informed by theories of attachment, early development, somatic attachment psychotherapy. I have extensive training in the Somatic Attachment Psychotherapy, Adult Attachment Interview, and Child-Parent Psychotherapy. My clinical supervision areas are focused in the area of attachment, disrupted attachment, childhood trauma, child-parent relationship and somatic attachment psychotherapy. My supervision style is reflective, relational and developmental. I view supervision as a ‘parallel process’, whereby the supervisor holds the supervisee, as the supervisee holds the client. This process can foster insight, transformation and growth. I provide clinical and small group supervision/in-person or remote.
