about me


hi, i'm kristen!

i am so glad you found me! i am a virtual counsellor living in the fraser valley, not far from vancouver, who provides therapy across bc. i am an uninvited settler living othe unceded land of the sts’ailes peoples and sto:lo nation. i use she/her pronouns, and people in my life describe me as compassionate, inviting and having a good sense of humour!

i am a queer cisgendered woman, and i am married to a cisgendered man. i understand the experiences of divorce and separation through my lived experience as a child of divorce, and navigating the world of blended families. i have experienced mental health challenges throughout this journey of life, and it’s these struggles that i believe have helped me not only understand the mental health challenges of others, but learn that in order to do my best, i have to put self-care as a top priority.

i am a daughter, sister, partner and auntie

and can be found sitting by the water with a coffee with my beloved french bulldog, larry. i speak openly about childfree living in a pro-natal world and even wrote a blog post about it! 


professionally, i am a registered social worker (#11871) and canadian certified counsellor (#13254) with a bachelor of social work and master of arts in counselling psychology. i have over 15 years combined education and experience counselling youth, individuals, facilitating group therapy, and supporting relationships.

i am influenced by various models of counselling including mindfulness, narrative therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (act), internal family systems, and queer theory. above all, i work from a trauma informed and intersectional feminist lens, recognizing the influence gender, sexuality and socio-economic status and culture can have on our experiences. i am an lgbtq2s+ and poly-friendly/ethical-non monogamy counsellor and am very enthusiastic about challenging heteronormative culture.


i provide individual & relationship therapy, along with clinical supervision and am in the process of receiving the canadian certified counsellor supervisor (ccc-s) designation through the ccpa.


through all therapeutic experiences, i encourage clients to notice the harmful systems of oppression that impact mental health; in particular colonialism, patriarchy and white-supremacy. i am passionate to work with all humans and truly believes that feminism is for everybody (thank you bell hooks!) and to love a woman, feminism is no longer a choice but an action.

"feminist politics aims to end domination, to free us to be who we are - to live lives where we love justice, where we can live in peace. feminism is for everybody."
