I’m a professional counsellor based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with a passion for global mental health.
I graduated with distinction from the Psychology Specialist program at the University of Toronto with a minor in Buddhism, Psychology, and Mental Health. I also graduated top of my class with a post-graduate diploma in Behavioural Science Technology from St. Lawrence College, and I hold a master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University in Canada.
In 2014, I was the first Canadian to receive specialized training in the Swedish Alnarp Model of Nature-Based Therapy from psychologists at the University of Copenhagen. I have taught mindfulness meditation to inmates through Correctional Service Canada, provided mindfulness-based psychotherapy for eating disorders and addictions at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto, and worked as a mental health counsellor at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.
Currently, I offer online video counselling services for individuals across Canada and internationally, and I facilitate in-person nature therapy groups in Nova Scotia. I am also the creator of Meditation for Change, a YouTube meditation project aimed at supporting the basic needs of women in the developing world.
In my free time, when not meditating or travelling, I enjoy spending time by the ocean, running, cooking, and otherwise enjoying the good company of family and friends.
As a professional member in good standing of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), I hold designation as a ‘Canadian Certified Counsellor’ (C.C.C.).
