Speaking & Media  


A bit about my me...


Two decades of work in the mental health field has allowed

me the privilege to witness people on their journey towards

mental wellness.  

My burning passion for this work originated from my

personal journey towards mental wellness. Growing up with

a father who struggled with alcohol addiction and depression

led to ongoing anxiety as a child and young adult while a

traumatic birth experience resulted in post partum

depression and anxiety. These are my greatest gifts. They

have allowed me to experience first-hand what it means to

do the inner work. 

I combine my professional and personal experience to

provide your audience with an honest, vulnerable, engaging 

and dynamic workshop, presentation or other speaking
