Certified Compassionate Inquiry Practitioner
Compassionate Inquiry is a somatic based psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Mate which reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world. It is a revolutionary approach that draws upon the fields of interpersonal neurobiology, epigenetics, polyvagal and social engagement theory, internal family systems, the understanding and research of trauma, and the body-stress connection, all held by a strong and crucial emphasis in presence, safety, and compassion.
“The purpose of Compassionate Inquiry is to drill down to the core stories people tell themselves – to get them to see what story they are telling themselves unconsciously; what those beliefs are, where they came from; and guide them to the possibility of letting go of those stories, or letting go of the hold those stories have on them …
That’s what Compassionate Inquiry is.”
~ Dr. Gabor Maté

She obtained her Acupuncture license in 2004 and went on to successfully receive certificates in Ayurveda, Traditional Hatha Yoga, Meditation and Non-dual Psychotherapy. In 2015 she founded AtEssence her private healing practice where she incorporates her knowledge of these profound ancient sciences. Her studies and passion in finding how our held unconscious beliefs and the separation from our authentic selves express in our mental and physical imbalances eventually led her to meet and study with Dr. Gabor Mate. The application of Compassionate Inquiry has truly transformed her own life as well as the lives of her clients.

She is extremely grateful to be able to continually expand her studies, deepen her own personal path of healing, and to be able to be a resource and guide for others on their unique journeys back to wholeness.
