Hello, I am Melissa!
My Mission: To empower compassionate souls to love themselves unconditionally.
I have earned my Ph.D., Master of Counselling, & Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and am a lifelong student of yoga and psychology. With interest in mindfulness, authenticity, well-being & relationships, I believe that in order to care for others, we must first take good care of ourselves.
From a nurturing attachment-based approach, I aim to provide support and care as we integrate yoga and psychology from a trauma-informed perspective, on and off the mat. My work is made up of an integrative & supportive approach dedicated to cultivating practices of self-awareness with the intention of integrating our body, spirit, and minds while drawing on and contributing to academic literature. Psychology and Yoga have changed my life which is why I felt called to create a trauma-informed yoga psychology school.
Each year I receive numerous invitations from professionals who are keen to collaborate and I love to share my learnings, curiosities, and practices with those keen to increase their understanding of trauma and how yoga and psychology can support and deepen their personal and professional practices.
Looking forward to learning with you!
