I work in the world today as an author, yoga instructor and health counselor. I am also a problematic eating therapist, teacher for the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, public speaker, educator and business mentor. I feel incredibly blessed to do the work I am meant to be doing on this short time on the planet. It’s been a road of self discovery and a desire to transform that has me here today. Let me explain…
My healing journey began several years ago when I was ready to CHANGE MY THINKING and to choose not to remain a prisoner of the destructive eating patterns I had caused due to my unhealthy thinking patterns. I had become imprisoned in my own body and this war spilled outwards as disordered eating, alcohol abuse, and depression. It was affecting every area of my life. Learning that I had the power to change my thoughts and therefore my life, allowed me to go on an incredible journey of illumination and self discovery.
Today I have absolute peace in my relationship with myself and others, and a deep acceptance and love for the beautiful being that I am.
I am passionate about collaborating with women who are READY TO CHANGE THEIR THINKING and TRANSFORM themselves. I am passionate about empowering women to take CONTROL of their THINKING and to take CONTROL of their own lives so they can create emotional, physical and spiritual health.

There was a time when I thought it was not possible to recover from disordered eating. I lived my life in fear and every emotion influenced what I put into my mouth; moment to moment, beginning at the tender age of 5.
“When you lose the weight, you don’t lose the beliefs that drive you to food, you have to understand the root of why you’re eating.”
I learned at a young age that disassociating from my feelings with food worked- even if only for a moment. I learned how to “escape” from the belief patterns I held that were causing me discomfort.
Moving into my late teens my problematic eating took on a new shape. Body image became another front and centre focus. While I was still disassociating with food, I was also trying to get rid of it. I began eating secretively, binge eating, overeating, and both regular and exercise bulimia became an active part of my life. I became so imprisoned in my mind, that I could barely leave my house because the thought of having to eat and what I would eat was so overpowering and debilitating.
My problematic eating affected my personal relationships, my friendships, my ability to work, my motivation to achieve, my self-esteem, a spiritual connection to source, and my sense of well-being in the world.
Eventually,I became conscious to the fact that I was killing myself with food – either eating, or avoiding eating. I knew that the guilt and shame around my behaviour, would kill me, even if the binges themselves did not. I knew that I could never have a relationship, with real intimacy, if I continued down the path I was on.
Surrender was my only option, and I was finally ready.
At 25 years old I began my journey of recovery. It has been nothing short of a miracle that I am completely healed of disordered eating. It is the realization that every human being with disordered eating can also have this miracle in their own lives, that has me leading this program passionately.
By following each step that is outlined in my 12 week program,I was able to heal. To be a prisoner of food for 20 years, I know deeply the desperation, sadness, fear, and self-loathing that brings one to a place of being open, willing, and ready to heal.
The greatest gratitude in my life is that I reached this point and was ready to do what it takes to be free once and for all. I choose what I eat every day, and my body feels better than it ever has. I love myself in a way I never thought possible and it is my deepest desire to facilitate the same healing and others.
I doubt I can convey to you the feeling of the miracles that I experience as a facilitator, witnessing the before and after in the lives of my clients. To begin to see the light in faces that have been stuck in darkness and loneliness, that only those suffering with disordered eating can truly understand, makes me realize that the term enlightenment is a literal one.
