Basic Emotions: Their meaning and need

May 26, 2021 | Emotions, General

If you remember, we started off the month with Canadian Mental Health Week (in the US it’s Mental Health Awareness Month, too). The theme this year was “understanding our emotions” and, since that’s one of my favourite topics, I decided to talk about it all through May. In my last post, I told you what…

Understanding our emotions

May 03, 2021 | Emotions, General

It’s Canadian Mental Health Week! This year’s theme is understanding our emotions and we’re here for it. I love asking my clients, why do you think we have emotions?

November 26, 2019 | Awareness, Body, Emotions, Mind

I see us people as incredibly complex and social creatures. We have a degree of consciousness we don’t see in most other beings (of course, we’re not certain), and which has helped us expand our presence in this world to a great degree. Awareness has given us choice, among other benefits. I think that, along…

Therapy and Plenitude

November 01, 2019 | Awareness, Body, Connection, Emotions, Mind, Society, Universe

In my profile on Instagram, I say that I work from a holistic, feminist, and intersectional lense. In practical terms, this means that when I work with someone, I think about them as a whole, and also about how their self affects their environment and vice versa. Let me explain. The person as a whole…
