Blackbird & Me.
My name is Nancy Lieff and I am a licensed psychotherapist and intuitive healer based in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.
My approach to all healing is holistic. This means I work on psychological, emotional, physical and spiritual levels of consciousness to provide healing for a diverse range of issues, such as mental health, addiction, trauma and spirituality.
My education and training includes undergraduate and graduate studies in criminology, addiction and mental health from Memorial University of Newfoundland & Labrador as well as the University of Lethbridge. In addition, I have training in intuitive healing work such as core shamanism and herbalism from The Foundation for Shamanic Studies, One Willow Apothecary and The Herbal Academy: The International School of Herbal Arts & Sciences. I integrate both formal and conventional, progressive and creative forms of counselling, psychotherapy and intuitive healing modalities into my work which is individually tailored to each client for comprehensive, deeply resonant healing; mind, body heart and spirit. Indeed, a healing journey with me goes beyond the traditional counselling treatment as does the transformational healing, to which my clients attest.
With over 10 years of experience working in the field of human services, I have enjoyed working with individual adults and groups experiencing domestic violence through local women's shelters and male mandated offender programs, addiction harm reduction programs as well as instructing college and university courses and programs. I am also a published author with Paradoxica: The Journal of Non-dual Psychology.
I am registered as a Certified Canadian Counsellor (C.C.C.) with the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association (C.C.P.A.) and hold an M.Ed Counselling Psychology degree with the University of Lethbridge in Lethbridge, Alberta. My focus during my graduate studies was on healing spiritual trauma with from an holistic, psychotherapeutic approach.
Besides being passionate about mental health, addiction and holistic wellness, I enjoy playing and listening to music (I play the piano and am currently learning how to play the button accordion!), reading fiction, baking, cooking and practicing yoga. I also love shooting nature photography, wildcrafting plants, hiking, animals and doing what I can to love the environment.
