Yoga and Enneagram Teacher
Psychological counselling, enneagram workshops, yoga classes and retreats in central Alberta and beyond.
Becoming well, living authentically...
Each of my offerings focus on the holistic development of my clients and students. As a psychologist and therapist with 10 years of clinical experience I am trained in a variety of modalities such as somatic experiencing (using the body and nervous system to develop calm, wisdom and insight into our authentic self), cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness, depth psychology from the perspective of Carl Jung and humanistic approaches to becoming whole and more at ease with ourselves.
In my classes, workshops and retreats I bring these modalities together with 20 years of yoga practice and 18 years of teaching, as well as 20 years of study in the Enneagram and ten years teaching it at beginner and advanced levels. All of what I offer combines various approaches and world philosophies to provide as much depth and insight as possible.
Yoga for Sanity and Soul
I have taught yoga in Alberta, Canada for 18 years. My approach to yoga integrates a focus on the whole person rather than just the physical. Expect to connect to body, heart and soul through mindful movement, conscious breath and the very best of body-centered psychology woven through each class. My classes are a unique style of yoga where you will:
- Enliven your body through movement and breath
- Soothe your heart through the best of embodied psychotherapy techniques
- Focus your mind through regular cues to come back to the present moment
- Awaken your soul through deep listening inside.
Fall 2021 and winter 2022 in person classes will proceed as long as the pandemic remains under control. Tuesday evenings class will be available live online as well. This class will be recorded and distributed to those
who require it.

Workshops and Retreats
I have taught workshops, classes and retreats with a spiritual focus for over a decade. Recent offerings have included a Homecoming retreat focused on the feeling of being at home inside, multiple beginner and advanced enneagram workshops and a weekly class on building soul into your life. Please watch this website or my facebook page for upcoming offerings....
What is the Enneagram?
The enneagram is a tool for understanding how our personal tendencies keep us from realizing our deeper nature. We can get trapped in stress and reactivity which prevents us from our greater capacities for love, meaning and purpose. The enneagram helps us to identify where we get stuck by exploring 9 personality patterns that we get lost in and how to become liberated from them. I have studied the enneagram with some of Canada's top teachers for 20 years and have been teaching the content for over a decade.
While I still practice all facets of mainstream psychology which focuses on cognition, emotion management and behavioural transformation I am particularly fond of working with larger themes such as meaning, purpose, soul and identity. My experience as a clinician is that people are best served by a holistic perspective that includes connection to something bigger than just "managing" their lives. I seek to help people align with who they really are and live authentically. This authentic living can help alleviate the psychological symptoms they came in with.
"You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves."
Join me as I wander through themes of psychology, embodiment, stress, soul and life.
