MA, MLIS, MA (Spiritual Care)
I believe that difficulty – a conflict, a loss, a sense of isolation – 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. As a coach, I bring spaciousness, kindness, and a deep interest in accompanying clients on their journeys. My work is to hold space for the reality of isolation, anger, or loss – while also supporting your own capacity to walk your path with integrity, resilience, and love. I currently work as a spiritual care practitioner at Vancouver General Hospital, where I use the skills of coaching and counselling to help clients connect with their own sources of strength and wisdom during difficult times. What matters in this work is a client’s desire to explore their own 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. 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.
