WELCOME!

I’d love to find out if I can help you at this time in your life, inspire your trust and meet on common ground. To consider counselling or coaching is a big step. You owe it to yourself to really check out the person with whom you choose to be vulnerable. 

I bring struggles and vulnerabilities of my own to this work, along with my victories, strengths and education. Training is one thing…. gut level experience is another. The first gives me an ethically channeled way to help others…the other gives me the motivation to help to bring comfort, hope, wisdom and courage to those I come alongside.

You can check out the details of my training below. As well as a counsellor and coach, I’ve been a teacher at all levels, a missionary and a community worker, along with the assorted odd jobs we’ve all done at transitional stages, that teach us so much about life and people.

Most of all, I’m a growing person, a student of life with a taste for adventure, a wife, mother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend, and now a grandmother. My greatest learning has been in these relationships, and in my friendship with God. Far more than any academic learning I value compassion and character in others and in myself.

If you’re from Muskoka, I’ve been connected here all my life, and lived here year round since 2001, with my husband, cats, garden and two daughters who are now adults and having their own adventures. I love to sing, play music, read, write creatively, walk, swim, canoe, do creative art, and spend quiet times in reflection. I’ve lived, worked, studied and volunteered in other countries and parts of Canada, and have a deep appreciation of cultures and nationalities.

I hope you’ll consider me someone who could listen well to your story and value and support your goals and needs. Please contact me and we can see what’s possible.
