get to know me

I am a Registered Professional Counsellor living in Calgary, AB Canada. Together with my husband and fluffy pooch, I love to explore the outdoors by bike or by skis. I also have a passion for global travel. I have travelled extensively throughout the world and we have lived and worked in Canada, Cambodia, and Bolivia. Part of my love for travel is experiencing different cultures and learning about how people across the world experience life. I love to do this by immersing myself into the rhythms of daily life in different cultures. I also find myself particularly curious about how different cultures view beauty and care for their mental wellbeing. My international work and life experience have allowed me to bring a unique multicultural perspective into my counselling work. 

 

I love movement. I have enjoyed moving body since I was a small child and I often have an on going sport that I compete in as well as an activity that is new or "just for fun" . This lends well to counselling as I encourage my clients to get curious about their own relationships with their bodies, finding enjoyment in the way they move and notice sensations. Using my skills and resources, I can walk alongside you as you learn to live an embodied life and begin to create meaning, learn new skills, and find better ways to cope with and engage in your life.

I look forward to working with you!
