Get to know Kama (she/her)

Of all the many times I have transformed and transitioned in my life, becoming and being a parent has been the most life, relationship, body, mind, and soul altering of any of them. Some of these changes have been for the better, some for worse, and some are just new and strange to me. It was these profound shifts that stirred me to begin working with new parents, to help them navigate the wild rides that come in the postpartum period and beyond.

I believe in the incredible power of words and sharing stories, ending and beginning chapters – your own and those of the people around you. For this reason, I worked in media and communications for 15 years. But, I wanted to connect more with women and with parents. So, I then earned a Health Sciences degree in Midwifery and ran a prenatal education and postpartum care business so I could use my knowledge to empower parents through knowledge and an affirmation of their inner strength and wisdom. I also ran a social and education network for new mothers, connecting them through shared experience, building a support system, and running classes to share community resources.

All of my roles have led me to exactly where I’m meant to be, using my diverse education and experience to counsel my clients with compassion and understanding.

You deserve to live a life that is happy and authentically you. I will help you to see your strengths and to find solutions that work for you and will help shape the life and relationships you want for yourself. I bring empathy, kindness, respect, and humour, and a commitment to making you feel heard and understood in every session. I work with you from a place of collaboration that is compassionate, non-judgemental, and supportive. I will also encourage you to challenge yourself in a generous and loving way in order to encourage growth and, ultimately, happiness.

I tailor my counselling approach based on your needs and goals. You are unique. No one else brings what you bring to this world, and no one else’s process will be exactly the same as yours. Together, we will find a process that feels right to you.
