Educational leaders
I’ve spent the past decade investigating what helps and what hurts wellbeing in busy leaders’ lives. There’s significant (and often negative) interactions between emotional demands at work and personal health and wellbeing and I help educational leaders who are experiencing workplace difficulties like bullying, or ongoing work overload, or chronic stress to find solutions and strategies that really make a difference. There’s ways of thriving even when things feel dire. I also provide professional development that helps leaders understand and deal with emotions in the workplace at all organisational levels.

Older adults (60+)
I help older adults improve their wellbeing. Together we can improve feelings of coping, day-to-day functioning, sense of control, and self-efficacy. You’ll learn thought-catching, understanding and refocusing so as to best manage your unique situation. We’ll look back at your prior strengths with acceptance and compassion and see how they can help you adapt to the challenges of aging. And old trauma can be worked through, understood and dealt with so you’re not carrying a weight or secret alone anymore. I present informational talks about mental health and aging.

I watched a heartfelt movie one day when I was 13 and home from school (Son-Rise) and that same year we studied The October Child. I was intrigued by Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental issues and wanted to know more. Fast forward 30 years and I do. I help parents and children who need special supports to do great things. We work on all sorts of issues like behaviour, emotional regulation and sensory sensitivity.


Living is mostly a balance between intensity and ordinary – but ordinary doesn’t have to mean unfulfilled or unhappy, and intense doesn’t have to be scary.  Problems, difficulties and all of your emotions are natural and normal parts of life.  Feeling overwhelming emotions (e.g., miserable, trapped, anxious or ashamed) is a common experience, but you don’t have to stay feeling like that.

Come learn to balance your real needs with your unique situation.

I’ll help you find the patterns in your experiences and how those patterns influence you.

You’ll really understand how your mind, body and emotions come together (like a perfect storm sometimes!) and make you you.

Together, we can ensure that you are being true in your relationships and that you feel loved.

We’ll work together to plan your next step on the path to coping and living well, and doing it in a way you can be proud of.
