My belief and philosophy
I am a counsellor, speaker, and fellow human along the healing journey. I love walking with others as they reflect, strengthen, release, heal and grow. I believe every person has innate worth and value and because of this, I know it is an honour to be brought into someone’s journey. I believe that we as humans, flourish when we have deep, meaningful connections and are able to be fully seen and known. That is my hope for you, in working with me.
