I studied psychology and biology in university then spent several years teaching overseas and working for non-profit organizations developing young leaders. In my early thirties I had a series of health crises that landed me in the hospital multiple times. I felt like I was losing control of my body and my life - not to mention my mind. When I came up for air and was able to reassess my life path, I came back to myself and discovered a passionate curiosity about neurophysiology, neurobiology and mental health. Mental and physical health are deeply interconnected. The understanding and experience of this has grown in me over my lifetime and blossomed during my practice in community mental health over the past 10+ years. Wholeness and wellness are embodied - and reflected - in safe authentic connection to self, others, nature and spirit. It is my great privilege to walk with others who desire to live whole and authentic lives in right relationship with all of life.
I value working with people of all ages, races, sexual orientations, physical abilities, cultures, and spiritual affiliations. I believe strongly that all people should be able to be fully themselves. This is possible in safe and loving spaces. Collectively we are so much stronger, and more beautiful, when we are our unique selves walking together.
The process of looking at life experiences with compassion, curiosity and new perspective gives you the power to shift limiting patterns from the past and painful judgements of the present. This leads to a more passionate life in which you can be more fully engaged in your relationships, career and dreams.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor providing holistic therapy for individual adults and older teens. Using an integrated approach, I focus on you as a whole person: body, mind and spirit.
It is important to me that you feel safe, heard, and valued for who you are. Whatever you bring, wherever you are on your journey, I am here to support you. I will listen, laugh and cry with you - I am a real human being.
