“There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.”
– Leonard Cohen
My life’s work has been about empowering individuals that suffer. Whether it be supporting individuals that have experienced trauma, or struggle with their identity, this work has been about being a witness and a guide to individuals transforming from one form of being into another.
I have been practicing over twelve years as a Psychologist and over the last 6 years as a Midwife. To me, human life is the greatest gift and it is with gratitude and respect that I help midwife the human soul.
I am an integrative, non-directive psychologist who believes in the power of curiosity and compassion for transformation and growth. I am trained in a range of approaches, from classical psychoanalysis and psychodynamic therapies to humanistic and existential approaches. Most recently, I have been training with Dr. Gabor Maté in his work that uses internal family systems, somatic awareness, and compassion. This work Gabor has called “Compassionate Inquiry” and addresses trauma and addiction.
On a personal level, I am a mother, a yogi, a dancer, a meditator and a curious adventurer. Since my first Vipassana meditation retreat, I have been fascinated by the depth and mystery of the human experience. It is clear to me that this mystery is an incredible adventure to explore in a context of safety. It has been my experience that we can use non ordinary states of consciousness to build the life and adventure we deeply want to be living.
Given my own experiences with suffering and transformation, my passion lies in supporting individuals through non ordinary states of consciousness where non ordinary states include : psychedelics, meditation, breathwork, but also trauma, giving birth, our dreams, identity formation and desolation, travel, and shape shifting.
I walk alongside individuals that want to look into these non ordinary states and I support them to find beauty and joy from within these experiences and within themselves.
Ultimately, my work aims to support people who want to bring their dark side into the light and who want to take charge of their own suffering.
I look forward to hearing your story and holding a safe space for you.
