Personal Statement

I have worked in the counselling field for 30 years, and have had a private therapy practice for over 10 years. It has been an incredible honor to accompany people through their healing journeys. Through the 15 years that I trained in Aboriginal Psychotherapy, FOT, and traditional yoga, I developed a profound belief in the power each person has to heal themselves, especially when met with these gentle, deeply respectful, body-centered and client-centred approaches.
Many of the people I work with are healing from trauma, anxiety, depression and issues that require releasing and rewiring the body and nervous system as well and thoughts and behaviors. The key has been to release problems in the body/nervous system as well as to recover/find their wellness identity. Both of these are play a crucial role in healing and wellness resilience. Of all the techniques I’ve experienced, Matrix Reimprinting rewires the nervous system/body experiencing most thoroughly and gently, so I use it along with the above approaches for people to fully remove blocks, heal and move forward.

Although there are many trainers available, I offer training and certification because of the incredible effectiveness of these techniques, my unique training and insight, and the profound need for healing and wellness that surrounds us in all our communities.
