Professional Experience

Taking action towards change is never easy and in many ways we have to be ready. This can be a process of exploration over time.. to prepare and gather information and resources, and begin the process of experimenting in small steps forward. I see clients within the systemic conditions within which they navigate, and their unique lived histories and experiences. I support the exploration and self awareness of dynamic healing and growth on their path of valued based growth.

I am a Registered Social Worker offering therapy for teens and adults. 

I also offer clinical supervision to newer and experienced therapists. I have fulfilled certification as a  Yoga Teacher and teach privately and in groups. As a LiFeForce Yoga Practitioner (the specific application for mental health settings) I incorporate appropriate skills and practices to help clients manage mood challenges. After 15 years working at The University of Waterloo in Counselling and Psychological Services  I partnered with Karen and Bill James-Abra and we co-own The Space Within. We are celebrating 10 years with multidisciplinary practitioners,  all who offer the community a space to heal, to grow and to connect.

I continue to follow any current provincial and local health guidelines and recommendations. I am offering both in-person and virtual appointments.

Chair Yoga I am not teaching yoga classes or meditation sessions at this time. Check back in the fall, thank you.

I am not able to accept new clients at this time as I am reducing my practice hours.  I provide  supervision to support new professionals as they establish their practices, or students on their practicum placements. Please contact me for referral information options.

Please check back for updates as the spring and summer season unfolds. Wishing you peace and well-being.  Cultivating peace within our own hearts is one way to contribute to peace in the world. Namaste´
