Discovering the power of self-expression through dance was a turning point in Angela’s healing journey. Dance’s continual invitation to self expression allowed her body to slowly step out of its shell of disempowerment; and into its natural vitality. In addition to receiving her Masters of Arts in Counselling and Spirituality through the University of Ottawa, Angela is completing the comprehensive Somatic Experiencing training, which guides her practice within other trained modalities such as Focusing and Expressive Arts Therapy. She is passionate about helping others find their own vehicle to self-expression so they, too, can step into their natural vitality and embodied healing.

Angela has been honoured to witness the resilience of humanity through her various positions in the social service sector over the last 12 years before launching her private practice. Her experience includes working with young mothers, survivors of abuse, homeless youth, and adults suffering with severe mental illness. She specializes in physical, sexual and emotional abuse; emotional regulation; anxiety; depression; stress management; PTSD; self-esteem and self-worth; boundary violations; codependency; bullying; grief and loss; life transitions; vicarious trauma; burn out; assertiveness; and identity or spiritual crises.
