About Me

“When a person becomes aware of their genius and they live it and they give generously from it, they change the world, they affect the world.” 
Michael Meade

I hold a Masters degree in philosophy with a focus on existentialism and a diploma in depth psychotherapy. I am currently completing my Masters in Integral Counselling Psychology with the California Institute of Integral Studies and am enrolled in a two year Somatic Attachment training. I am specifically interested in the intersections of mental health, social justice and mindfulness. Since 2015, I have been involved with a non-denominational meditation community called the Consciousness Explorers Club where engage with these intersections. When I’m not meditating or studying I’m usually hiking or camping, playing a sport, dancing, reading and writing, cooking and dreaming.

I am a passionate and community-oriented individual with strong interests in nature based therapy and ecopsychology, the transpersonal and social justice. I identify as Jewish, white-bodied, and queer.

After working for five years in the worlds of food security and systems change, I felt drawn to focus my energy less on the external world and more more on the internal world through the practice of counselling and psychotherapy.

Through my own learning journey, I have come to see that we each have unique gifts to contribute to the people and world around us. Supportive relationships with others (individuals, families, counsellors, communities and nature) enable us to find, cultivate and offer our gifts to others in a way that nourishes both ourselves and our surrounding environments.

I look forward to carrying forward the gifts I have uncovered and to being an ally to those who are ready to engage in transformative work.

I am currently practicing as an intern under supervision, RCC #1287.

I gratefully reside on traditional territory of the Lekwungen (Songhees & Esquimalt), W̱SÁNEĆ and Quw’utsun peoples in the place now also known as Victoria, BC. I am available to connect both in person and online.
