The stigma around mental health can be one of the greatest barriers to health and happiness that many people face. The Canadian Mental Health Association ( reports that individuals with mental illness are often faced with multiple, intersecting layers of discrimination which keeps them from reaching out for help.

As a professional in a highly stressful, fast paced job, I found myself trying to use the force of willpower alone, to push through some pretty serious health symptoms. I was tired all the time and I felt cranky, frustrated and overwhelmed. I could not concentrate on what I was doing and I lost my ability to plan and strategize (key components of my profession). Increased levels of anxiety, and then depression, were clear signs that my mental health needed a boost. But I felt ashamed for being weak, and I was afraid that others would judge me and treat me differently if I asked for help.

Registered Psychotherapist
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist

I am passionate about helping people discover the blocks that are keeping them stuck, and learn how to move forward in creating healthier habits, stronger relationships and more peaceful lives.

It was through my own journey of overcoming paralyzing fear, that I have come to find my passion for working with couples and families. I had been working in social services for 20 years and after struggling with working 70 hours a week, trying to manage opposing obligations between my employer and the two boards that I was serving, I was constantly feeling that I was never good enough.

Holistic Nutritionist

If someone had told me 10 years ago I’d be interested in nutrition, I would have laughed. I mean, I was the gal who at one point in my life fuelled myself for months with little more than microwave popcorn and bottles of Coca-Cola, while I endured an epic divorce and custody battle. Years of chronic stress and a sugar addiction left me 40 pounds overweight, tired and achy all the time, short tempered, unable to sleep well or think clearly, and covered in acne like an adolescent, yet I was just about to turn 40.

So what the heck happened to turn my 10-year mess into a success?
