"Investing in understanding yourself — what makes you unique, what makes you strong, and how you may hold yourself back — is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Self-awareness is like a super-power — it doesn’t solve all life’s problems, but it gives you ways of navigating challenges that make you more likely land well. Whether you are looking for quick tools to help shift your mood, or longer-term support for charting a course through a major life transition, or puzzling through challenges with grief, family, relationships or work, I feel privileged to support your success and be and a part of your story."

"I offer a safe, non-judgmental, healing space, to help you understand your soul's unique journey. Do you feel stuck, in conflict or in a crisis? Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or maybe defeated by depression? When you find that talk-only therapy is not shifting you, then you are ready to work at a deeper, core level, working with the implicit memory or history that is in your body. I am a guide that can help you to find your true soul essence and grounded authentic self. This form of body / soul healing and psycho-therapeutic inquiry can support you if you experience • Stress. A difficult life transition • Or a critical illness • Challenging relationships or communication problems • Self-esteem or self-image issues • Emotional or physical abuse • Depression, grief or loss • Despair, hopeless or stuck • Fear, anxiety or panic attacks • Difficulty to feel love, joy or pleasure • Addictions or shame • Accessing or managing anger, or affect regulation • Healthy boundary development or how to say ‘No’ • Emotional or physical trauma • PTSD symptoms • Disconnected or confused spirituality issues • Ungrounded spirituality."

"For over 15 years, I have been working with children, youth and adults as they navigate a variety of relational difficulties. Often those who I have worked with are feeling disconnected, in conflict and stuck in patterns of relationships that they wish to make changes to. My focus has been in utilizing your strengths to develop more positive ways to engage with those in your life, empathically supporting insight to those patterns and finding successful strategies to managing stress and conflict as they arise. The emergence of neuropsychology and neurplasticity has illuminated therapy and parenting approaches. I weave this knowledge into my work to remind us all about the way the brain functions to understand our behaviour and reactions. This also leads us to understand those around us and why they behave the way they do, often helping to bridge the gap in disconnections or provide hope for change. "
