Wellness Workshops

I began my facilitation journey in 2012 when I started hosting free events to build community among people who have experienced abuse. Soon after, I received my workshop facilitator training from NIA Centre for the Arts. I am honoured to say that my experience has helped me create a strong foundation for the approach I take to my workshops, and in addition to my free community offerings, I also now work regularly with other community organizations, women's shelters, and post secondary institutions.

Regardless of whether or not a workshop is specifically for folks who have experienced violence, I take a trauma-informed approach because abuse doesn't discriminate, and we don't always know whether the participants present have experienced––or are still experiencing––trauma. Therefore, I centre the choices of participants, allowing them to choose how they engage with the exercises. Because of this, each workshop has the potential to make a deeper impact, helping folks feel a greater sense of safety along with the understanding that they have agency over their experience.

In 2022 I received my 100 HR Meditation Teacher Training from Hoame Meditation Studio. I incorporate guided meditations, pranayama and yoga nidra practices into my sessions when requested. Currently undertaking a certification in Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy which will be completed in December 2023.

My workshops are designed to help people regulate their nervous systems, discover new tools to tend to their wellness daily, and feel a deeper sense of connection to self and others. Healthier lives mean healthier relationships and a healthier society!

I facilitate workshops on a variety of themes including poetry, the inner child, self compassion, reparenting, forgiveness, building connection to the body, and more. Please contact me for a detailed list of my offerings and to discuss your workshop needs.

As a trauma-informed writing guide, I also teach an 8 week course that helps participants develop a sustainable foundation for writing out their stories. Learn more about it here.


Workshop Topics

"These events have deepened my awareness, relationship with myself, and bolstered my confidence and clarity towards healing/clearing the traumas I've been carrying in my body."


Testimonials from Workshop Participants

"Very deep and healing session. I felt present in my body and enjoyed sharing and connecting with like-minded women from all walks of life. I felt seen in this space, but most surprisingly heard."

"My experience was wonderful. A safe space where once can unwind, relax and be present, drop into the body and be."

"This space is all the things those of us healing feel is possible but rarely get to engage w/. The practice is self focused while simultaneously being held in a collective to ease and pull and tease so much of the yuck gunked up in the corners of ourselves."
