Wherever you are, I'll meet you there!
I am committed to creating and holding a space of love and healing for you, welcoming you home to your own heart! Helping you navigate back to this present moment and to the space that holds you exactly as you are! A reminding of the perfection that is you! I am so glad you are here!
My own journey to this present moment was a stream of initiations that began over 30 years ago. It has not been easy, but I am so grateful to the gift of grace that brought me here. My 20’s was the initiation to self, a journey of exploration, play and travel, of leadership in the non-profit sector, the beginning of my studies in meditation and alternative and energy health practices. My 30’s was the discovery of motherhood, a journey and exploration of unconditional love and the beginning of a career as a Registered Midwife. My 40’s begin as the initiation to the ego’s expression of my best life which took a 180 degree turn in my mid 40’s to an incredibly dark period of time after a car accident literally stopped me in my tracks. This was the invitation to come back to Self, a journey to finding my true heart’s purpose.
I am so grateful for these journeys, graciously and not so graciously inviting me to the opportunity to do my own work, to develop my capacity to sit and hold space for you. I am a Registered Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, Intuitive Inquiry-Based Counsellor, Medicine Carrier and Energy Healer, a Black Cord Elder of the Thirteenth House Mystery School, an USUI Reiki Master, and Clairsentient and Claircognizant.
I continue to follow my heart and my love and dedication to learning. At present, I am currently enrolled in the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certificate program with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield, and at Orca Institute to become a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor. This past summer I began studies in Relational Somatic Therapy, and Sound Healing. I will always be a learner, and continue to study and grow my roots in my practices and in the space of circles and ritual. I am resourced by connection with family and friends, nature, lots of laughter, and am a proud mother of two beautiful souls.
“I've known Julia for what seems like a lifetime now, even though it's only been 18 months. She has been the person I go to when my nervous system has needed to settle; when I am fearful, anxious, sad, or alone. She's also been the person I go to when I need to share something I'm excited about; when I'm happy, joyful, at peace, or simply neutral. She's been able to hold it all. Whatever has come up in me, she's been able to meet it just as it is, with loving kindness and open arms.
I could talk for a long time about Julia's admirable qualities, but I think it suffice to say that, among other things, she is a deep listener, an insightful, caring and loving human being, a wise counsellor, and the sort of comrade you want by your side in battle; the ideal companion on a long, dangerous journey; a level-headed leader in times of extreme crisis; and a comforting friend, sitting next to you at the end of your hardest challenges, as you reflect on your experiences in life and survey the terrain you've just crossed. I couldn't have asked for a better blessing in my life.”
