Personal Statement

We are all on this journey together.  At times, the path can seem unclear, daunting, or downright unpassable.  That’s when drawing on a trusted guide to get yourself back on track is key.  I believe we all have resources within us, that when tapped, will remind us of our way.  Using your strengths, we’ll develop healthy patterns, uncover meaning and find progress along your path.  This is vulnerable and courageous work, which I deeply respect by providing a safe and accepting space.  I believe in a holistic approach that recognizes we are multi-dimensional and interconnected in relationship with others.  As such, I will look to draw on a range of techniques, experiences and tools that resonate with you.

On my own path, I have travelled, worked, studied, parented and played. I approach life and work with a desire for balance, a zest for the creative and a natural curiosity.  It would be my privilege to walk alongside you when the journey is rough-going.

Areas of Interest

My particular areas of interest include: life transitions, identity and meaning making, grief and loss, depression, anxiety and spiritual direction.
