I believe that difficulty - an illness, a loss, a sense of dissatisfaction - can be an invitation into deeper, more intimate connection with ourselves and the world around us. To accept this invitation means asking ourselves profound questions, while bringing both kindness and curiosity to understanding what matters most. It means connecting with our deepest aspirations for our lives, and re-evaluating our priorities and occupations.
Trained as both a coach and a Buddhist chaplain, I bring spaciousness, kindness, and a deep interest in accompanying clients on their journeys. My work is to hold space for the reality of uncertainty, grief, or anxiety - while also supporting your own capacity to walk your path with integrity, resilience, and love. Where it’s helpful, guided meditation, visualization, and ritual may be a part of our work together.
What matters most is your own desire to explore your inner landscape - not a particular spiritual identity. It is my privilege, again and again, to witness the human capacity to find meaning and purpose in the midst of life’s most challenging moments.
As a chaplain (spiritual care practitioner), I have provided care to patients and their loved ones in hospital, hospice, and long-term care. In this work, I use the skills of coaching and counselling to help clients of all spiritual or philosophical backgrounds to connect with their own sources of strength and wisdom during illness, injury, and the end of life.
I received an Associate Certificate in Conflict Coaching from the Justice Institute of British Columbia, and an MA in Spiritual Care from the Vancouver School of Theology, and I continue to develop my Buddhist practice with a recognized Dharma teacher. My coaching practice is supported by ten years as a public librarian specializing in community development and leadership, as well as a dedicated mindfulness meditation practice.
