Before I became a therapist, I flew across the country training executives how to use the internet for management recruiting. After every flight, my colleagues would ask whose life story I had heard on the flight because inevitably, the person beside me would share so much about who they were.
I’ve always been the trusted, go to confidante of friends, colleagues and clients, so I decided to train professionally in the most effective, efficient, and fun modalities to help people make sense of their thoughts, feelings, and actions.
I love the science and magic of what the mind, body, heart & soul can achieve when we are aware of who we are. Then we can become whole instead of fragmented and aligned. So along the way, I have studied, researched, and continued to learn through certifications, designations, and trainings to stay on the leading edge of transforming consciousness.
What my clients know is that I’ve lived my learning. I’m human too. The processes I facilitate, and train are methods, I have and continue to use myself for my own growth.
Activated Global is about how we become fully human, from who we are within.
Awareness, Acceptance, Empowerment, Choice, Communication, Change. These are the principles that guide the processes that we train and use at Activated, and they are the values that we live personally.
I can’t wait to share these with you and guide you on YOUR JOURNEY to becoming ACTIVATED as Your Mentor.

Published Research & Academic Publications
Sharing research findings is an exciting part of being a professional practitioner. Over the years I have had the privilege to present research at the Canadian Psychological Association conferences, and university conferences, including Laurier and Brock. I have also sat on book review forums, most notably for Dr. Harry Hunt’s book Lives in Spirit.
