I invite you to practice a few deep breaths as you reflect on aspects of your journey that led you to this page. Have you been feeling stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed? Exhausted or drained? Perhaps seeking to learn new coping tools or wanting to develop your self-care practices? When we bottle up emotions and feel disconnected to both ourselves and others it can be difficult to access healing, recovery, and growth. Counselling can provide a space to press pause from busyness or turmoil. Seeking a safe space to rest. reflect, and to feel restored.
In our sessions, I will provide a safe space for you to feel heard and accepted. As we build our connection, I offer evidence-based tools and guidance crafted to meet your needs and goals. Sessions may also include body-based practices for relaxation or the release of stored trauma. Virtual and in-person sessions are available for teens, adults, and groups.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor, Integrative Somatic Therapist, Registered 200-hour Yoga Teacher, and certified in Ayurvedic Nutrition. Additionally, I am a First Nations (Cree) woman with mixed European ancestry. My approach is trauma-informed, neurodiversity-informed, and holistic. I invite you to connect and to book a session.
