"Connection is the energy that is created between two people when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement"

Welcome! My unique experience as an anxiety-focused Certified Peer Support Provider and a Certified Counsellor has helped guide many people through their struggles; helping them find a more fulfilling path.
I, too have had challenges and struggles, felt stuck and unhappy and have learned how to ride the waves of life.
I believe connecting my personal experience with yours creates more honest, open and authentic conversations.
My person-centred, solution-focused approach supports those who are ready to make positive changes in their lives.
Change isn`t always easy, sometimes its downright messy!
I believe that we all have the ability to navigate through the muck, and find the freedom we seek... we may need an empathetic and supportive guide along the way.
I would be honoured to be that guide.
I am a Board Certified Peer Support Provider through Peer Support Canada. My professional training includes many aspects of Mindfulness and relaxation techniques, trauma and addictions recovery, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, LGBTTQ awareness, Mental Health First Aid, and suicide prevention. I have received certification in both the Applied Counselling Certificate Program at the University of Manitoba and the Mental Health Counselling Skills Certificate Program through the Crisis and Trauma Response Institute. I have a achieved my Level 3 Usui Reiki training and have an extensive Yoga practice.
Clients who work with me will often hear about thoughts' journaling and re-evaluation, cognitive and behavioural re-structuring and creation of their personal "coping tool kit", calming practices, and perspectives-based outlook.
My intention is to connect with a client emotionally, spiritually and cognitively, and to help them integrate their past experience with their current challenges and successes so that they can move into a more fulfilling future.
I offer face to face, Skype, face-time or telephone sessions. I will consider assisting folks experiencing Agoraphobia, or those challenging feared scenarios. I offer Counselling for individuals, or youth over age 16 with supervision of an adult caregiver. I also offer a unique integrative Counselling and healing Reiki bodywork practice. This unique approach requires a minimum 90 minute session.
My affordable hourly fee starts at $60 (travel time extra).
