I believe when you take time to sit with your feelings and connect to your body, you activate your intuition and deepest knowing. Being connected to this authentic part of yourself is the foundation of pleasurable sex, healthy relationships, healing, and personal growth.
I provide empathy and a non-judgemental presence to help you unpack difficult feelings, behaviours and experiences that are blocking the connection to your inner knowing. In doing so, you will learn tools for coping with and changing unwanted emotions, experiences, and behaviours so you can thrive in and out of the bedroom!

Registered Professional Counsellor & Somatic Sex Educator
A partner once told me I am like an old woman with the soul of a five-year-old: I go to sleep early; I like breakfast for dinner, soft rock, claymation Christmas movies, and skinny dipping in daylight!
By profession, I am a Registered Professional Counsellor and Somatic Sex Educator. I work with individuals experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, low mood, and relationship issues. My specialties are issues related to sex and sexual difficulty and/or dysfunction.
I also have three years experience working with young adults and international students.
So… if you want more intimacy, energy, pleasure and passion in life - and perhaps in the bedroom too 😉 send me an email to set up a 15-minute consultation and see if I am the right counsellor for you.
I believe our bodies are wise and a crucial part of the healing process.
Therefore, I use body-based therapeutic exercises - Havening, breath work, mindfulness, stretches, self-massage, exercises, somatic practices, etc. - in combination with traditional cognitive therapies to help you with your mental health and/or sexual struggles.
I am strongly informed by client-centered and strengths-based therapeutic approaches, while using a trauma informed lens. My practice is also informed by Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), and Solution Focused Therapy.
Somatic Sex Education
Mainstream culture prizes being busy, logical and cognitive, and frequently promotes pleasure limitation - shaming or abusing those who desire sexual experiences outside a limited context.
It is easy to get stuck in your head and disconnect from your body, passion and pleasure - resulting in low libido, low arousal, painful sex and/or performance anxiety/issues. Rarely do we slow down to live, love and make love from a place of awareness and embodiment.
Somatic Sex Education uses body-based exercises and experiences to help individuals cope with and heal from negative sexual experiences, shame, and trauma so they can re-orient to pleasure!
