Meeting mortality well is a soul-task.
It's not easy, but it can be profound.
When the familiar structures of our lives are stripped away, we show up as we really are, and our most genuine humanity is revealed. My soul is fed in that place where pain and sorrow, joy and love, are so exquisitely true and beautiful that my heart cracks open.
I have a Masters Degree in Environmental Studies, and a PhD in Transformative Learning. I've been a long-time student of cross-cultural shamanic healing and nature-based spirituality, and have worked with many indigenous and western teachers. I’ve made my own journeys through darkness and difficulty, into healing and resolution.
I'm passionate about helping people find the healing gifts that death and loss can bring.
I'd be honoured to walk with you on your journey.
I love what I do, and I bring an open-hearted practicality to it. I join my clients in some very intimate and personal experiences, and I do so with respect, humility, compassion, and awe.
I offer a calm and stable presence in what are often intense emotional situations. I know when to be serious, and when laughter is the medicine that’s needed. I am deeply committed to individual and community healing.
I offer myself in service to both the seen and the unseen world, and I work for healing on both sides of the veil.
When you, or someone close to you, is experiencing the initiatory power of serious illness or death, the journey can be a roller coaster of emotional and interpersonal challenges.
There are tools and practices that can help. Contact me to learn how they can work for you.
