about 

I have been specializing in mental health for over 20 years.

 

During those decades of service, I've had the honor and privilege of walking alongside many individuals -from all walks of life- on their wellness journey.

 

In 2011, I became program manager for a mental wellness centre located in Mission, B.C. Feeling compromised by the stress and pressure of this new position, I sought out new ways I could support my wellbeing outside of the traditional modalities I was currently using. This is when mindfulness and meditation found me.

 

Fast forward to now, these ancient practices are the cornerstone of my self-care routine and the lens in which I support and care for others. Through mindfulness and meditation I am learning to appreciate this human predicament we find ourselves in. It is teaching me how to lighten up, take my mind less seriously, be less self-focused and judgmental and in turn more grateful.

The outcome, less suffering— greater ease.

My intention is to support you in experiencing the same Or better yet for you to discover for yourself the many incredible ways that mindfulness can be and is already at work in your life!

 

I currently reside in the traditional unceded Territory of the Stó:lō Nation Peoples, where I live, work, love and play, with my husband, loved ones and community at large.

I look forward to the opportunity to walkalong side you on this mindful journey.

In loving-kind regards Always,

~ Brandi (she/her)
