Equine Facilitated Counselling
Traditional Clinical Counselling
Masters level Intern - Adler University
Nature has always been my sanctuary. If I need grounding, I head to Grouse Mountain. If I am worried, I take a walk at Westham Island. If my spirit needs cleansing, I take a run where I can smell the sea air. And if I am deeply tired, I head home to the shores of a Lake Memphremagog where I am rejuvenated. I truly believe that nature can heal and restore. I also believe that horses are nature in its finest form.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Concordia University in Montreal. I am currently completing my Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology at Adler University in Vancouver. In addition, I work as the Program Administrator for Southlands Therapeutic Riding Society, a therapeutic horseback riding school, and serve as a Director for Forest and the Femme, an organization that empowers marginalized women through nature.
My approach to counselling is person centered and focused mainly on connection and presence. Each person has a unique journey. I want to help people discover and strengthen their own voice and find the path that is right for them. I believe that empathetic understanding can help open up space within and allow room for new ways of being to emerge.
On a personal note, I am a mother of two adolescent daughters and an endurance runner. Running, snowshoeing, hiking and swimming help me rejuvenate. Meditation, yoga and music keep me centered. Personal growth is very important to me and I believe it comes from staying engaged with life and connecting with myself, other people and animals.
