Description

I’m a Gestalt Therapist with over 15 years of experience teaching mindfulness and somatic embodiment practices. Both personally and professionally, I’ve seen the transformative power of tapping into the wisdom of the body and unpacking what comes up through the therapeutic process. My strength as a therapist is creating a safe and compassionate space to explore the parts of life that may feel tender, painful or challenging. As a queer mama, I love supporting folks through sexuality/gender questions, fertility journeys, parenting, burnout and the challenges of being human in an unjust world.

Facility Information

Tender Somatics Therapy

Summary

I see folks mostly online, but also have a few sessions available at cozy yoga studio in Kitchener, Ontario. To make online therapy feel more inviting and relaxing, I suggest preparing your favourite warm drink, lighting a candle and perhaps even inviting your dog to join the session.
