Dr. Bev’s Story:  ‘My own little Haven’

Growing up, I loved to play with the design of my spaces. I found the organization of furniture and how everything fit together to create flow and function a very satisfying and calming experience. 30 years later and I'm still fascinated by how the simple things around us fit together. Even my children’s lunchboxes get arranged with a considerable amount of psychological forethought!

My infatuation with design was put to the test in 2018. My husband and I were living in what we thought was our dream home. Yes it was a rental, and yes it was basically a garage, but we loved our beautiful laneway home. This modern and sleek home had a calm, Scandinavian vibe; everything felt cozy and tranquil. Our first two years there were pretty close to bliss. We had found our own little oasis, minutes from one of Canada's most beautiful beaches. Surrounded by beautiful flower and fruit tree gardens and within walking distance from work. It was perfect. Perfect for just the two of us anyway...

In August 2018 our two baby boys were born. We joyfully welcomed our beautiful twin babies into our home and said goodbye to sleep for the foreseeable future. When we started sleep training at 6 months, our coach told us that the only way to train the babies to sleep was to separate them. And the only way to create separation in our tiny abode was for one of us to sleep in the garage. We were beginning to accept that we might be outgrowing this beautiful space.
We eventually moved into our ‘now home’, and the focus over the last 5 years has been on creating a calm, comfortable, beautiful space that supports both our collective family’s needs, and our individual, personal needs. This has not always been easy when ‘kids things’ are constantly trying to invade every corner of our (relatively small) house!

My partner and I are busy working professionals; one of us introverted, the other social and outgoing. Our kids are are BUSY and are into everything + their interests and needs seem to change almost DAILY. There’s a LOT going on, and it’s difficult to hold space for all the competing and constantly evolving life factors. However, by taking a psychology first focus and following some important principles, we have been able to create a home that supports connection, energy, learning, rest, focus and flow. It is our Haven.

As a psychologist with more than a decade of experience working one-on-one with individuals, I'm in a unique position to challenge the status quo of how we look at health; encouraging people to explore design and re-imagine their home spaces as sanctuaries of wellness. I want to change the way that people think about homes. When we understand our values a little better, and what our individual wellness goals might be, we can shape our surroundings to enhance our well-being.

Dr. Bev is a vibrant, warm, and no nonsense wellness advocate who has been a psychologist for over a decade.
