About My Journey

I have a deep passion for the work I do

I have a deep passion for the work I do with my clients and feel that my journey to becoming a psychotherapist has been in process my whole life! I started my career training as a Registered Massage Therapist knowing at a fairly young age I really wanted to work with people in a healing and therapeutic environment. In my work as a RMT I started to become aware of the correlation of physical pain and health to mental and emotional pain and trauma. I learned a lot about myself and the human experience through my interactions and relationships with my massage clients. It was through these relationships that my path lead me to learn about the human energy system and so I found myself taking courses in the holistic field of chakras, vibrational healing and energetic therapies. I studied and practiced meditation, mindfulness, and spiritual studies for a few years and my path organically lead me to the Spiritual Psychotherapy program. My thirst to understand myself and others on all levels mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I began my own personal psychotherapy while I was involved in my energy studies as my inner world and consciousness were changing and transforming. My therapy and self-exploration shifted as I began the psychotherapy program and have been a true life changing experience. I continue to partake in my own personal journey through therapy and through clinical supervision as my life and career continue to progress and grow! I have a profound understanding and compassion for the work it takes to go on a journey to healing and Self-Awareness, and have been witness to the shift and growth it can have. I believe true health is not just about the physical body, but about wellness of our mind, spirit and emotions. Because our deepest humanity resides in our Spirit!

In the spirit of respect and reconciliation, I acknowledge that my practices are located upon the lands that have been inhabited by Indigenous peoples from the beginning. I acknowledge the Haldimand Tract, traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishnaabe and Haudenosauonee peoples, and the ancestral lands of the Attawandaron people and the treaty lands and territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. As a settler, I respectfully thank all the generations of people who have taken care of this land for thousands of years. I am connected to our collective commitment to make the promise and the challenge of Truth and Reconciliation real in our communities http://www.sixnations.ca/LandsResources/HaldProc.htm
