Certified Holistic Life Coach
I am a certified holistic life coach and counsellor from Rhodes Wellness College in Vancouver, BC. I have studied at Douglas College in Coquitlam, BC under teaching, education and French and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC. I am also trained in various counselling techniques such as somatic therapy and RIS therapy and am addictions and trauma informed. I am currently working towards completing my training and hours to be a registered professional counsellor within the Registered Canadian Counsellors Association.
I am born and raised in Vancouver, BC. I am a lover of the outdoors, enjoying massive charcuterie boards and engulfing myself in the culture and environment of every place I travel to. I love connecting with human beings on a deeper level and truly live my life through love and an open heart.
When I began understanding this connection I desire so deeply with people, I was originally pursuing a teaching degree. I loved the idea of being able to influence younger ones into feeling capable and confident. As my studies developed from teaching to Psychology, my value of wanting to help relieve others of their struggles grew. Now, with the opportunity to work in a field that is focused on supporting humans through change and growth is a blessing to be a part of.
My work is surrounded around valuing you exactly as you show up and to acknowledge all states of yourself. My work is fuelled by my desire to help you recognize that you have choice. Regardless of what you are feeling, I want to bring clarity for you. My intention is that you can learn just as much from me as I learn from you.
