I’ve worked with individuals, families, couples, and youth. I have trained in Family Systems Theory, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP).
For 4 years I worked for Clearmind International Institute as Director of workshops where I support people in group work and students of the Counsellor Training Program, a 3-year counsellor training program, and as a facilitator.
I offer an open heart, compassion, and inquisitive mind in counselling to help identify where the struggles in life arise, in areas, patterns and dynamics that show up, where people get stuck, stuck on a loop that doesn’t allow someone to live their life to the fullest.
I was led into counselling in a large part from my own personal and family experiences. I had a feeling of wanting more, that I was just going through the motions of life, not being true to myself and my abilities. Lacking fulfillment, purpose, joy and expecting to find it from my family, relationships, friends, all while not giving it to myself. That brought me to take steps to discover and look at my life and who I wanted to be in it. I got support and started learning about grief, loss and change and how to deal, how to cope and feel and be me in all of it. Learning that each individual struggle is unique and sacred and that it cannot be rushed, and our bodies need to feel and learn our way through these experiences.
