We can't take care of the emotional needs of our children until we take care of our own."
- Dr. Gabor Mate
It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it myself". – Joyce Maynard
My Professional Evolution
As soon as I graduated from Clearmind International’s Practitioner Training Program, I felt very drawn to working with other mothers.
I received my designation as a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC) through the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada (ACCT).
I have done further training in self-care coaching as well as post-partum anxiety and depression.
As a counsellor, I draw on my experience as a former teacher to provide down-to-earth, practical strategies. I also allow my intuition to guide me as I walk beside you during your transition to motherhood, and help you open to the rich, spiritual experience that can be possible during pregnancy and motherhood. Your emotions (as hard as they can feel sometimes!) are a gift and if you allow them space they will guide you to heal and grow.
I am inspired in my work and life by my two lively and lovable little boys- they are my biggest teachers on how to bring my best self to motherhood!
Through my challenges, I've learned tools to turn obstacles into opportunities and developed a deep compassion for other moms struggling to find their way. It is my honour and privilege to support moms on their own unique journeys.
My Mission and Values
It's my vision to be able to support moms to become the best version of themselves as women and mothers. There is so much information and support available to help guide our children, but what about moms? It all starts with us.
I believe that when mothers themselves are supported they are able to blossom and live richer, more satisfying lives. When moms are fulfilled they become better role models for their children.
This is how I want to change the world- to support mothers to grow and evolve. For their children AND for themselves.
