PERFORMING ARTIST AND TEACHER

 LICENSED MINISTER AND COUNSELLOR

OFFERINGS

 

Welcome 

Let me tell you a little more about who I am and what I do.

I weave song, poetry, movement and music to create passionate performances and soulful ceremonies.

 

As Reverend Roula, I serve as a Life Celebrant, Counsellor and End of Life Doula.

I legally officiate weddings in Ontario and facilitate milestone ceremonies such as baby namings and coming of age celebrations.  As a trained Death Doula, I provide loving end-of-life care from diagnosis to final breath (and support to the family beyond). I also offer spiritual counselling under the mentorship of cutting-edge soul-based psychotherapist, Dr. Larry Nussbaum.

 

As Roula the artist, I am a Juno-nominated vocalist, poet, dancer and actor. After teaching Middle Eastern dance for over 30 years, I have distilled my work into a suite of offerings that are steeped in tradition yet fundamentally oriented toward what I call Soul Attunement.

COUNSELLING

Beyond labels and letters, I offer my care as a spiritual counsellor because I have been there.  Big time.
