I am a Registered Psychologist, yoga and Enneagram teacher in Camrose, Alberta, Canada. I take a very eclectic approach to healing and use multiple tools in helping people work through issues, develop meaning in their lives and reduce stress. A few of my approaches include cognitive behavioural therapy, Jungian psychology, Internal Family Systems therapy, Person Centered therapy, inner child work, trauma processing techniques, mindfulness and stress reduction. My background in philosophy and sociology also informs the lens through which I approach therapy. Helping people discover their true self, buried under wounding and conditioning, is my passion.
For the last 16 years I have taught classes in and around Camrose, Alberta. I teach Fall and Winter sessions and focus on retreats and workshops during the summer months. Each session I teach has a different focus in which I develop classes that increase emotional intelligence and work to identify and shift mental-emotional patterning in the body.
Because of the progressive intent of each session my classes require students to commit to pre-registered class times, however, there is opportunity to make up missed classes in other class times during the week.
Along with teaching yoga I am also a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists. I have worked with a diverse population of people in my therapy practice – from people needing simple advice, to those with chronic or acute mental illness. I also work with people who are interested in increased self-awareness and the development of spirituality.
Safety is of utmost importance to me and I employ a wide variety of approaches to psychotherapy depending on the needs of the individual.
This intricate and profound tool of self awareness helps you identify your personality type and tendencies that keep you stuck. It is meant to offer you a lens into patterns that may keep you in dysfunction and the choices that can set you free. This is tool blends psychology and spirituality to give meaning and guidance on the path of self discovery.
I have been teaching the Enneagram in the area for 10 years and recently am collaborating with a colleague out of Winnipeg, MB to co-facilitate advanced modules in the Enneagram tradition.
My blog is a fleshing out of my dance with life. Its contents are not only inner musings but an offering to anyone interested in the pursuit of meaning and wholeness. I choose topics from yoga, spirituality and psychology that may of relevance both in my own life and the lives of my readers.
I am happy to answer general questions about these topics through my blog, and questions can be sent by message to my email or Facebook inbox. I think of writing as an extension of my yoga practice and answering questions as an extension of my teaching. Click here to view my blog.
