About

Befriending emotions and connecting with body wisdom can help you navigate life's challenges, feel more grounded and confident and make changes that lead to more ease and better relationships. Perhaps you'd like to set healthier boundaries, develop more self-compassion, or enhance your sense of yourself as a sensual and sexual being? I aim to co-create a welcoming, compassionate space where trust, personal awareness and authenticity can develop so you can take action toward your needs and goals. If you seek to embrace the wholeness within and beyond yourself, allow me to support you in your personal transformation journey.
I have worked as a nurse in various settings, as a Mental Health Consultant in the community, and as a therapist in a trauma day treatment program. My training includes group psychotherapy, women-centered brief psychotherapy, Psychodramatic Bodywork, Sex Therapy, the International School of Temple Arts. I also have 400 hrs of Kaiut Yoga Teacher Training.
I see relationships and sexuality as vehicles for growth and spiritual development and help you approach them from a place of clarity, abundance and self-love. I offer individual & couple sessions using an eclectic approach to inspire you to connect with your body wisdom, your unique gifts and your soul journey. Ask me about service en Français & Español.

Alina Isaac's Groups

Harvesting Stories

Using Narrative methodology, this group invites you to look back on your own history and bring to light, or harvest, overlooked stories of skills and abilities. Such stories may have been overlooked or forgotten but exist in spite or because of, difficult life circumstances. It is hard to build on them if we are not aware that they are an important part of who we are. The goal is to reveal and acknowledge qualities and competencies that can serve your life - present and future. This 3-session 90 minute online group requires the use of paper, pen & coloured pencils.
