I am a certified Life Coach, Registered Counsellor and Full Spectrum Doula based in Vancouver, BC (land of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ / sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples). I assist individuals and couples into deep acceptance and the healing power of the radical inclusion of all parts of ourselves. I believe that everyone deserves to feel heard, to feel supported and to realize their goals and dreams. I offer my presence to support, hold accountable and celebrate someone’s successes. I abide by a non-judgmental and compassionate framework. I believe in the gifts of exploring one’s inner world, gaining clarity about how experiences from the past affect life today and how to move into a present full of spaciousness, integration and joy.
