Level II Certification in
The Way of Council

“The Body knows before Knowing.”
For the past decade, I’ve experienced personal psychotherapeutic work in a variety of settings, trained and served extensively in the experiential practices of Systemic Family Constellation Work, Heart-Centred Hypnotherapy, and The Way of Council. Prior to entering professional training for certification as a counsellor, I had facilitated and participated in numerous group processes and had volunteered as a lay counsellor for 4 years at Cowichan Family Life Association.
In 2017, I graduated the well-established and respected Kelowna College of Professional Counselling, with a Diploma in Professional and Applied Counselling Psychology and completed my certification in Heart-Centred Hypnotherapy at the Wellness Institute in Washington State, USA. I am now completing an Advanced Internship in Heart-Centred Therapies there and practicing as a Candidate member of the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association.
Apprenticing with my own lived experience of childhood neglect, sexual abuse, depression, and complex PTSD, I have also witnessed countless other individuals in recovery from childhood trauma, addiction, codependency, and other long-term patterns these experiences can create, with lived experiences of the provincial mental health care system.
I am well-versed in the experiential practices above as well as conventional counselling practices, evidence-based interventions, and the approach of 12-step programs, specifically Codependents Anonymous and Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families.
Other influences and areas of knowledge include (NVC) Compassionate Communication, the study of Consciousness and Non-Ordinary States, Transpersonal + Soul Psychology, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Process Addictions, High-Sensitivity + Giftedness, the mind-body connection, and Holotropic Breathwork.
In the session space, I witness, reflect, and inquire from a deeply compassionate and wide-angled lens of human experience. I work with what arises most naturally, with a keen eye and ear for what is possible, most needed, and ultimately empowering from that place.
Whether you may simply seek a safe place to figure out what’s next or you are ready to dive in deeply to the root of a recurring life pattern, I offer you this space to explore and inquire, speak out loud, unpack and reconnect. Sessions can be illuminating, grounding, empowering, and transformative, in any order.
Namaste. Hy ch q’a. All My Relations.
