I have a rich background in psychology, counselling and human development, music, and mindfulness. I also have spent much time working with persons with Autism and other neurodiversities, and have training in holistic nutrition! These diverse specialties allow me to put my skills together in a unique way to serve my community. Always enjoying being in a helping role, I am interested most now in being there for clients who need support with End of Life care. I am simultaneously and in an overlapping sense, enjoying a deep dive into many areas of music creation and sound ceremony. Both of these paths deeply call to me now at a soul level, and I know confidently that I am doing what I’m meant to. I feel profoundly honoured to be working with clients in these areas.
As for my personality, I would describe myself as down to earth, pragmatic, and matter of fact – being gentle when needed yet giving you that extra push when appropriate. I love to laugh and always maintain my sense of humour. I’m a very spiritual person, yet in a way that is open to the beliefs of all, and is supportive of such. I do not subscribe to any dogma, and am always open to discussing new ways of seeing and being. I’m comfortable with all sexualities, gender identities, relationship structures and family dynamics. An important goal for me is to create comfortable and inclusive spaces for my clients. I am open to criticism and am more than comfortable being told what works for you and what doesn’t!
If you find yourself in need of my services, please don’t hesitate to contact me – if I can’t help you, I will gladly do my very best to connect you to someone who can.
