I am a Therapeutic Touch® practitioner and a Reiki Master licensed in the City of Toronto. In my work at Wellspring, an organization providing services to people living with cancer, I offer weekly sessions to their patients. In my Thanatology and Grief Counselling private practice, I also integrate Therapeutic Touch when appropriate and requested.
My formal academic training is long, diverse and has offered me the opportunity to work with people of all ages, backgrounds and situations. I studied Death, Dying and Bereavement at Wilfrid Laurier University and have a BA degree in Sociology and Psychology from Simon Fraser University. I completed my studies in Counselling at Vancouver Community College, which I mainly applied when I worked with young adults at risk in that city. I also received a Master’s Degree in Adult Training and Development from Schulich School of Business and I studied and received certification as a Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner with NLP Canada Training.
In addition, I offer complementary therapies recognized in the medical community known to reduce the side effects of cancer treatments, improve health, generate a sense of wellbeing: Therapeutic Touch, Mindfulness meditation and Emotion-focused Therapy.
