THE WAY TO WELLNESS : Change

The nature of life is change yet the nature of human beings is to resist change. What makes change so fearful is that it involves risk and moves us out of our comfort zone. It is important to remember that change comes in each moment, and in every moment we always have choices. The cleaning of cluttered cupboards or weeding of an over grown garden illustrate letting go of the old to make room for the new. The ritual of endings and beginnings gives us time to reflect on what we would like to be different in our lives.

And the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom  
— Anais Nin, Author, 1903–1977

The growing awareness of the inseparability of mind and body health has been the focus of my work and research for the past 30 years. A new paradigm of integrative mental health techniques has emerged that support overall wellness and encourage the healing power of the body's potential.

After completing a BA in Psychology from McGill, and a BEd from the University of New Brunswick, I became passionate about working with women and created The Women’s Connection, a support group that ran weekly for almost 20 years. Some of the issues that were covered included work/life balance, re-entry into the work force, conflict resolution in relationships, and most important the concept of self-care. I then completed a certificate program in Spiritual Psychotherapy from Institute NHC in Montreal and went on to study Holism and Whole Person Care. During this time I began a Private Practice dedicated to helping my clients explore and create their most authentic selves.

It is my belief that everyone is deserving and entitled to live a joyous, healthy and vibrant life. What I have witnessed as truth is that at one point or another during our lifetime we will sit stuck in our hopeless story while experiencing the overwhelming and confusing array of emotions of fear, anxiety, shame, anger, and guilt. It is during this time of transition that I help my clients find meaning in their loss and use this as a stepping stone to growth, renewal, and transformation.

In our sessions together you will learn how to access mind/body techniques that will help regulate mood levels, increase energy, stabilize sleep habits, and improve food choices. All of these modalities are interconnected in helping you feel more whole, balanced and complete.

Professionally, I presently work in private practice in Montreal as a Wellness Counsellor and as an Associate Counsellor of Agence Ometz. I am a member of the Academy of Naturopaths and Natural Therapists and the Quebec Counselling Association.
