Recent discoveries in neuroscience have made a profound contribution to our understanding of how we function as human beings. We have a greater awareness of optimal functioning as well as how anxiety, trauma, and addiction can impact our ability to be our "best self". I'm interested in the human nervous system, how it functions, and how we move towards health and recovery through understanding these things. I'm also passionate about incorporating these new insights into my work – as a counsellor, speaker, and writer.

I continue to be passionately engaged in learning about the complexity of the human brain as it relates to the impacts of chronic anxiety and trauma as well as the journey into addiction. I am more passionate about using that knowledge to help people move towards increased health and wholeness.


Curious about why we struggle.

More curious about how we heal.
