As a Registered Massage Therapist my goal is to help people on their journey to feel better physically which opens the door to feeling better mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
I spent 17 years in a corporate management position when I realized that I was just spinning my wheels. Although I felt some sense of fulfilment in helping people grow and change, it became clear that this was not my life’s work. Helping people to feel better, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually was my first stop. I attended Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic to become a Registered Massage Therapist. After graduation, and starting 2 different practices, I began teaching at Sutherland-Chan School. I taught anatomy, pathology, treatments, hydrotherapy, Business, and Medical Legal Report Writing for over 12 years. I have a love of learning … a passion for learning new things and learning them well.
I have taken over 30 post graduate courses in:
- Cranio Sacral Therapy
- Lymphatic Drainage
- Integrative Manual Therapy
- Neural Mobilization
- Visceral Manipulation
- Therapeutic Touch
- Psychophysiology of Pain
I am a member of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario, and The Massage Therapy Alliance of Canada.
As a Certified Life Coach I am a Co-active Coach having trained with The Coaches Training Institute (CTI). I facilitate coaching programs accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). I have taken and continue to take many other courses and seminars to assist me in guiding my clients.
With my background in large business and health care for the last 35 years I am able to provide a unique perspective to Coaching. In my life I have made major changes, including career, relationship and relocating.
A few years ago I took up golf even though I had never participated in another sport. I am now passionate about golf and striving for improvement in the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the game. In many ways, golf is analogous to life and life analogous to golf.
I practice yoga, rug hooking and love to read and learn.
