A Realistic Optimist.

Love the life you live.

It was about 20 years ago, at a camp in Canada, that I first found my passion for this work. 

Most of the people that worked at camp had been coming there since they were kids. Camp was their safe place, a space where they could be their authentic selves, a place filled with joy, fun and laughter. Camp taught me what it means to love what you do everyday, to bounce out of bed excited for the day ahead.

I’m incredibly grateful that this experience created the foundation for my career. It was here I learnt the importance of establishing a safe space, the power of pleasure and connection, and the incredible growth that can happen when you create the right context for change.

"I'm passionate about helping people remove roadblocks to authenticity and connection."

Innovative, holistic, integrative learning & therapeutic approaches.
