I welcome you;
No matter where you are on your healing journey, you are taking a step by exploring this site; take your time and notice how you respond to what you read.
My vision is to create a practice that supports individuals’ healing processes so they can reach their full potential. This vision has led me down a personal and professional path of exploring the innate wisdom of the body and the power of self expression.
Dance changed my life.
Discovering the power of self expression through dance was a turning point in my healing journey. Through the years, Dance’s continual invitation to self expression allowed my body to slowly step out of its shell of disempowerment; and into its natural vitality.
I am passionate to help other’s find their own vehicle to self expression so they, too, can step into natural vitality.
In addition to receiving my Masters of Arts in Counselling and Spirituality through the University of Ottawa, I am completing the comprehensive Somatic Experiencing training, that guides my practice within other trained modalities, like Focusing and Expressive Arts Therapy.
I have been honoured to come in contact with the resiliency of humanity through my various positions within the Social Service Sector over the last 12 years before launching private practice. These positions supported various populations within many agencies, including young mothers, survivors of abuse, homeless youth and adults suffering with severe mental illness.

Somatic Experiencing, Advanced year 2015
Complex Trauma, 2013
