A little about me

 

I'm filled with gratitude for having sensed my calling to help others at such a young age. Throughout my life, the challenge of finding a sense of safety and belonging in the world has been a constant struggle. Even in crowded rooms, I often felt a profound sense of loneliness, which transformed my pain into deep suffering. I found myself wondering the reasons behind life's inherent struggles, the complexities of human behavior, and the seeming injustice and suffering prevalent in the world. I wanted answers, to seek truth, and to be there for others who were alone with their pain.

Driven by this deep desire: I listened to my intuition and moved across the country at 18 to embark on my journey of studying psychology. I channeled my own pain into a source of motivation, intending to become a beacon of light for others—a presence I yearned for but never had. This mission became my lifeline, offering guidance even in the darkest moments, inspiring me to pursue my dreams and create a life filled with meaning and fulfillment. Every day, I am thankful that I listened to this soul-calling.

My path of wanting to help others has intertwined with my personal journey of self-discovery and healing. It has been an intense exploration, unearthing and healing from the impacts of childhood trauma, early life experiences, past life, and ancestral imprints. I have lived through CPTSD, debilitating social anxiety, depression, suicidality, self-harm, substance use, toxic relationships, living in a state of shame, low self-worth, dissociation, dis-embodiment, and spending everyday in survival mode. The list goes on. I feel like I have plunged into the depths of darkness, spent time in the underworld, gone through deaths.. initiations.. dark nights of the soul.. re-birthed.. and always found my way. 

My personal journey of healing provides me a foundation of deep understanding, wisdom, and compassion that I bring to my work with others. I am always attending therapy, exploring alternative healing modalities, reading, crying, laughing, learning, getting angry, connecting with nature & beyond, being human, learning to care for my inner child, letting myself be loud, messy, and make mistakes. Sometimes my self-care and spiritual practice is journaling, meditation, ecstatic dance, and pulling oracle cards. Other days it's barefoot walks, eating fries with my younger self, watching cute animal videos online, letting myself lay in bed and not be "productive", or listening to the same song over and over again for hours. I am grateful to be walking alongside you on the path back home to our Selves in this lifetime.

To this day I am still diving deep into the 'why' of human behaviour and the world we live in.. and that has evolved into my never-ending desire to understand the 'how' of healing. I follow the guidance of my body, soul, and heart, which has led me into exploring so many beautiful healing modalities and perspectives. I am fuelled by an insatiable curiosity, always learning from the school of life, inspiring trainings, books, podcasts, conversations with those around me, and from my work with clients. The learning never ends. 

And I absolutely love it.

When I'm not working, you can always find me: diving deep into a book (or a few!), relaxing in a cafe with an iced coffee in hand, listening to podcasts about trauma, spirituality, sexuality, witchy things and the paranormal, spending time near water, cooking, painting or anything creative, singing and dancing my heart out, and enjoying any moments of sunshine.
