Are you, or someone you know, suffering right now?  Stressed?  Burned out? Grieving?
Is there a life situation that is overwhelming you right now? 

Everyone – individuals, couples, and families – struggles at times. It’s just part of being human. 
Even so, it’s hard.  And I know It takes courage, and strength, to ask for help.

I provide professional counseling and transformative workshops that can support you to better understand, feel, heal and transform your pain. Please look around and if you find yourself feeling some resonance, curiosity, or interest in working together, please contact me or book your appointment directly online.  I am located conveniently in the Old City Quarter of Nanaimo, B.C., and offer online or in-person services by appointment only.

Start Close In

This is the title of David Whyte’s poem. Start Close In. That’s what we did in founding The Centre for Compassion Inspired Health.  We started close in with long time friends and colleagues. With our own hearts and minds.  With our own personal practice of mindfulness, meditation, healing, and growth.  With a sincere desire to be of service and contribute to a more compassionate world.  Follow this link to read more about Our Story.
