“In my therapeutic work, I like to bring in both the body and the mind, to help facilitate healing of the entire person and to access the fullest life possible. One of my favourite parts of my job is watching clients build new, healthier connections with themselves, others, and the world around them. I am forever honoured to be able to witness this part of my client’s journeys.”
“Outside of my life in the field of healing, I love crocheting, taking courses, hiking, reading, and spending time outside with her two rescue dogs, Ukee & Cadence.”
