I am a certified practitioner of Gabor Mate's somatic based psychotherapeutic approach, compassionate inquiry. I come from a background teaching psychology, philosophy and religious/moral studies and bring together three decades of experience of mind/body practices and academic studies to offer my clients a safe space, non-judgemental presence, natural curiosity, humility and a deep desire to work alongside you on your journey of healing and personal growth.
I feel blessed to be a compassionate inquiry practitioner working with this somatic based trauma informed approach. It has been transformative for me and my clients in so many ways. I work with clients from a wide range of backgrounds exploring many issues including addiction, relationships, depression, identity, religion/spirituality, child abuse and ADHD.
