I work privately and in groups with those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, chronic pain, grief, sleep disturbances, breathing difficulties and/or post-traumatic stress injury (PTSD).
With the core belief that no one needs fixing, trauma-informed yoga therapy can offer education and self-regulation body-based tools to support a more connected, empowered, resilient and embodied life.
After experiencing the sudden loss of my mother in my late teens to a workplace accident and my father in my early 20s to a drug overdose, I found yoga as a way to support myself through the pain and effects of these traumatic experiences. My experiences taught me that healing is not linear and cannot happen solely alone. I am grateful for the practices I have acquired that continue to support me on my journey and I have dedicated my education, training and career to compassionately support others on theirs through trauma-informed yoga therapy.
I also offer an annual retreat for those who have experienced the death of a loved-one and run trauma-informed yoga programs and presentations for organizations like the Squamish Firefighters Association.
I have been teaching yoga publicly, privately and in treatment centers since 2016 and have acquired extensive training in trauma-informed yoga therapy through Vancouver School of Healing Arts, Langara Community College and Yoga Outreach.
