RPC, RYT 500
SHE | HER | HERS
I am a Registered Professional Counsellor in good standing with the Canadian Professional Counselling Association, a Certified Life Coach and I have completed 500 hours of Yoga Teacher Training, including 300 hours of Trauma Informed Yoga Psychology Teacher Training.
I am currently completing my Master of Counselling with City University.
When I consider what to share, I think about what it is that led me to this work, which is a combination of life experiences, an innate sense of knowing, and a passion for both learning and teaching.
I have been studying human behaviour my entire life, watching what others do and learning how to navigate the world in order to create a sense of safety for myself. It makes sense that it would become my life's work to take what I've learned and figure out how to offer it to those who are interested in learning.
I have come to understand that the challenges that I've faced were not because of some inherent flaw within me, but instead and in large part it was because all of the amazing things about me didn't fit the narrative of who a female was supposed to be in this society.
I am grateful that my intuition never let me believe the people who tried to quiet my values about how people should be treated, and how we should show up for one another.
We are social animals and leaning on each other is hard wired into our DNA. We are also often doing the best we can with what we have been taught, and sometimes we come to the realization that how we are living is not serving us.
The first order of business is to stop blaming yourself for something you should actually be proud of, which is that you have managed to survive up until this point, and in many circumstances that is absolutely no small feat.
