I help individuals, couples, and families decode relationship dynamics, transform their suffering into connection, and build resilient bonds
"Much of our wounding is relational. So is much of our healing."
Hello! I’m Kim.
I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor and psychotherapist, but you might also call me a student of human behaviour, an advocate for big emotions, a listening (like, truly listening) ear, and a space holder for hope and healing. I see healing as a continual process of deepening self-knowledge and advancing our skills of self-inquiry, self-expression, and emotional regulation…not a place we finally arrive.
I believe we could all use less perfectionism and more self-acceptance, less criticism and more compassion, less fixing and more space to be fully ourselves.
In my practice, I support people seeking to become more acquainted with the many aspects of the Self and integrate their pain to form a coherent narrative, enabling them to find meaning and purpose in the struggle.
I am inspired by the vision of thriving relationships and families. I view conflict from a Family Systems perspective, with deep respect for the complexity of each individual’s personal history and life situation. I was raised as the eldest daughter of four, and I am married with a tiny daughter of my own. As both a daughter and a mother, I am committed to healing the Mother Wound and its many manifestations including perfectionism, shame, attenuation (making ourselves small), emotional caretaking, self-sabotage, and disordered eating behaviours.
My work is essentially about bringing consciousness to the many hidden elements of our being, for the purposes of better relationships: within families, between partners, and to the Self.
