Welcome to Be With!

My name is Barbara and I'm an emotional wellness coach, pastor at large, queer progressive babe, and your go to for all the feelings.

Be With is the love child of my years of training & experience in ministry, psychotherapy, coaching and institutional rebel rousing. It's here to help you feel your feelings, nourish your spiritual life and learn how to be with yourself, others & this magical thing we call Life itself. 

These days you'll find me podcasting over at The Big With Podcast, seeing clients one on one in Toronto & remotely, offering online training experiences like The Be With Initiation, and running workshops, inter-faith services and retreats. 

Want to get to know me better?


Centred on community and sacred passage, the Initiation is an online training program that will expand your capacity to hold space.


One on one support to help you make both internal and external shifts that will allow you to experience more meaning and presence in your daily life. 


A simple tool tool to help you break the nasty habit of putting yourself last. Get ahead of your to-do list, and invite more ease, joy and connection into your life. 


I also REALLY love instastories, so come hang with me @bewithcards where I drop truthbombs and share about my own emotional wellness journey on the daily.
