Why are you a counsellor?

Because I want to be! It is deeply meaningful for me to walk alongside others as they face times of uncertainty and challenge. During seasons of struggle and growth, I have been fortunate to have found clarity and support from genuine and gentle counsel. I hope to offer space where clients can recognize and realize what is most meaningful to them.

Why are you a counsellor?

From a young age I had a strong desire to help people. I had an innate ability to go deep with those I spent time listening to and I have always found the mystery of human behaviour and the magic that is healing to be fascinating. I am continuously inspired by the wisdom, power and resilience of the human spirit and know that more is always possible. Counselling is more than a profession to me, it is truly my hearts work. It is my intention to create a safe and sacred space for reflection, self-discovery, deep healing, and radical transformation. 

Something we wouldn't know about you?

I love to read, travel and expand my world-view. I have volunteered abroad in Africa and previously completed a practicum placement in Nicaragua. I am also attempting to read 52 books this year!
