Feeling disconnected from yourself? Struggling to break free from patterns? Constantly overwhelmed? Managing emotions feels like a challenge? Seeking support and allowing space for self-reflection can be daunting. For that, I recognize the courage it has taken for you to get here and the willingness to be open. I believe understanding your human experience is the path towards healing. Therefore, wonder, acceptance, and compassion are core values of my approach. As we become more self-reflective towards our physical, emotional, and spiritual selves, we gain the ability to create lasting change in our lives.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC), a Mindfulness-Based Trauma Therapist, a Certified Synergetic Play Therapist, and Certified 400-hr Yoga Instructor who uses the pronouns she/her. Beyond my professional designations, I encompass the role as a mother, loving partner, a friend, daughter, sibling, photographer, yogi, traveler, and and, above all, a lifelong seeker of knowledge and wonder.
I'm passionate about aligning the mind-body connection, dedicating my energy to helping individuals understand their emotional and physical experienced through conversation and movement. My professional journey involves guiding individuals in trauma processing, anxiety management, and experiencing personal growth for holistic well-being.
I prioritize a safe, compassionate, non-judgmental, and confidential healing space. I trust in your expertise in your own life, recognizing your doing your best with what you know at this time. Together, we build a path to heal the past, ease the present, and embrace a hopeful tomorrow.
