Welcome and thank you for visiting my website.
I am a Registered Clinical and School Psychologist as well as a mindfulness meditation and yoga teacher/consultant, originally from Toronto, now based in beautiful Victoria BC. I am a member in good standing of the College of Psychologists of Ontario (Reg #6500), the Ontario Psychological Association, and Yoga Alliance. I currently work full-time as a psychologist with the Ministry of Children and Family Development. I am in process of becoming registered with the College of Psychologists of British Columbia.
This website is my endeavour to describe my services and draw together my passion, which is mindfulness and mindful living. I believe that mindfulness is a powerful modality that has the potential to heal communities and the planet, and to prevent trauma and oppression. I provide mindfulness-based psychotherapy, facilitate mindfulness-based groups for children, adolescents, and adults, as well as train educators and health professionals in mindfulness – in order to support balance, wellbeing, resiliency and healing. I also provide individual mindfulness coaching (in person or online) and customized mindfulness training and consultation services to organizations, particularly in health and education.
The only way out is through – mindfulness provides an effective, evidence-based, empowering and compassionate framework to navigate life’s difficulties and to promote healing from the inside out.
My favourite way to teach mindfulness is within nature as I wholeheartedly believe that this is the way to create sustainable positive changes in our life and to heal the planet. For the past three years, I had the good fortune of collaborating with the Kortright Centre for Conservation in Toronto to design and deliver nature-based mindfulness/health and wellness programs. Now based in Victoria, I look forward to partnering with the Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary to continue this work!
My mission is to support the healing and empowerment of individuals, families and communities, while always working from a place of integrity and compassion.
Please take a look around my website and feel free to contact me with any questions that you might have. I look forward to connecting with you!
