"You are energy. Energy is power. YOU are power. Owning it = Liberation. I am passionate about empowering women to own their value, step into their power & lead revolutions. I also understand how hard this is when embedded in toxic, dis-empowering culture(s), whether it be family culture, work or school cultures or societal cultures. The result is heart/mind/spirit wounds and a mixed bag of feelings such as pain, fear, grief, confusion, rage & stuckness, to name a few. I create & hold a safe space by nurturing & supporting you in feeling & exploring your way through it all at a pace & depth that feels right for you."

""Happiness comes from the full understanding of your own being" (Marina Abramovic). In my practice I help clients develop deeper meaning in their lives and a greater sense of their whole being, often using techniques from Gestalt therapy. Clients are supported to become 'directors' of their own experience, and to understand how behaviours that were once part of creatively adjusting to past environments may be interfering with their ability to function fully in the present moment."

"I describe my work as supporting people through life transitions. By that I mean facilitating change from a current state of being to a new way of seeing, thinking, feeling, believing and functioning in life. The people I serve often deal with relationship issues, workplace stress and burn-out, health challenges, family issues, life losses and the impact of exclusion and oppression. I work collaboratively with people, assessing and working with current strengths and capacities, identifying barriers to success, helping to identify hidden potential and developing new capacities. I am committed to an anti-oppression practice."
