Hi, I'm Alice (she/her).

I'm the Founder and Clinical Director of Our Landing Place.

I believe that connection is what helps us to heal and grow. My practice is based on building an authentic connection with you in order to help you become empowered to reach your goals.

I grew up in England but have travelled and lived all over the world. I moved to Canada in my early twenties and have lived in Ontario, British Columbia and Prince Edward Island. My wife and I love exploring Canada's beauty by hiking with our dogs, going on road trips and camping whenever possible. In my downtime, you'll find me in the kitchen experimenting with new plant-based recipes, sipping hot chocolate while snuggled up with my dog, playing music, gardening, reading and spending time with loved ones.

I am grateful to live, work and play on unceded traditional Epekwitk Mi'kmaq land and I use she/her pronouns. I pride myself on providing a welcoming, positive, and knowledgeable space for LGBTQ2IA+, BIPOC, HIV+, Neurodiverse, Sex Worker, Kink, and Poly folks.

My areas of focus are:

- Sex, Intimacy and Relationships

- Couples and Partners

- Gender and Sexuality

- Neurodivergence and Disabilities

- Self Esteem and Body Confidence

I have a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Education, Postgraduate in Communicative Disorders and Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. I am currently completing my PhD in Clinical Sexology.

I also have professional training in: 

- Gottman Couples Therapy

- Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples

- Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

- CPI Nonviolent Crisis Intervention

- Autism Spectrum Disorder (BI)

- Life Coaching (Certified Life Coach)

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC), a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and a Professional Member working towards Sex Therapist Certification with the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).
