 Hi, I’m Justine!

RTC, Life Coach, RYT

(she/her)

I am a holistic-based counsellor, coach and yogi of European/ Meti ancestry, residing on
the traditional and unceded territory of Sinixt tum-ula7xw, the Sylik and Ktunaxa First Nation people colonially known as
Nelson, BC.
 
As a counsellor, I aim to actively dismantle the oppression system that exists within me
and my counselling practice to create safer and more inclusive spaces for folks with have been marginalized.
 
My approach is gentle and down-to-earth from a client-centred, trauma-informed, body-centred perspective. This lens attends to the holistic complexity of being human and considers the mind but also the body and how it responds to stress, anxiety, depression, grief, loss, trauma and more.
 
Genuine curiosity for the complex human experience as well as personal anxieties led me to a journey of healing. Nine years ago, I discovered the support of yoga, breath-work, counselling, and coaching. Like the roots of a pine tree, balance and compassion soon expanded and grounded my life.
 
For the past decade, I have worked in the social service sector facilitating life skills youth groups, advocating for women and children, and providing care for at-risk youth. I have had the opportunity and honour to build a yoga community, own a studio, and teach community-led yoga classes and workshops
 
I am continually humbled and amazed by life's challenges; I believe if we take the time to slow down and connect, profound opportunities for growth and healing are waiting to blossom. It would be my honour to walk with you through your healing journey and process.
