HELLO AND WELCOME!

Brooke has spent much of her life surrounded by the forests and waters of Vancouver Island and with deep respect she acknowledges herself as currently living within the unceded territory of the Songhees people. Gardening, her dogs, and diving deep into the beautiful unfolding of the human experience all keep her grounded and bring Brooke joy.

Brooke is passionate about working with others to reclaim their authenticity and to achieve a more intentional and compassionate self-understanding. She believes that all people are doing their best with the tools they have, and that those tools were developed for valid reasons at some point in time. If those tools are no longer working for you, Brooke will support you in creating the changes you seek from a position of loving kindness and appreciation for what has helped you this far.

Brooke's education includes a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University, a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Victoria, and a Diploma in Women's Studies from North Island College. She has received her Internal Family Systems (IFS) training primarily through the Internal Family Systems Counselling Association (IFSCA), and continually attends advanced courses to deepen her skill set in this modality. Brooke is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) with Evergreen Certifications and regularly completes trauma related training to ensure her approach is consistent with current evidence-based practices.

 

Brooke has 10 years of experience and education as a professional helper. She brings her own experience of living with and healing trauma, and an unwavering respect for all people wherever they are in their own journey.  Walking alongside another human reclaiming their right to live in their truest form is a privilege Brooke does not take lightly. She is in awe of the healing power of a trusted relationship and is honored each time an individual chooses to develop one with her.
