Hello again...

I'm so happy that you have found your way here. As a nature-based mindfulness counsellor, psychosynthesis practitioner, and contemplative arts instructor, my goal is to help you explore your inner life, connect with your inner resources, and understand why you may be feeling stuck or overwhelmed. Together, we'll create a set of mindful practices and reflective activities that will provide new perspectives on your life. My approach is rooted in social work, psychosynthesis, and nature-based mindfulness. Psychosynthesis is an integrative psychology that combines Eastern wisdom with Western thought, and it sees each individual as inherently whole and good with the capacity to tune in to their life purpose.

My work centers around helping women connect with their deepest nature, which is revealed through the language of their bodies, sub-personalities, dreams, art, and other manifestations of their psyche. This process, which we call the "Call of Self" in psychosynthesis, can lead to a new relationship with your body, life, and work that is grounded in deep purpose and individual expression. For lasting change, it's important that all parts of yourself are moving in the same direction. Together, we'll work to achieve this goal.

Education & Training

My educational background includes a Bachelor of Social Work Degree from the University of Victoria, and various expressive arts training. Additionally, I completed training and received certification in Psychosynthesis from the Synthesis Centre in San Francisco, and uphold the ethical standards outlined in the Code of Ethics for Board Certified Coaching.
