What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?
My life has been a series of ‘forks in the road’ that have lead me to where I am today. I was drawn to the health field due to a prevalent family history of dementia and a personal issue with dysglycemia (Imbalanced blood sugar). I was raised to be a preacher and left that to become a Holistic Doctor. My focus is mental health. I love the brain and see connections with brain types and behaviors. I am also intrigued with the mind and have discerned that much of what people feel they are as a person are actually survival strategies disguised as personality traits. Our behavior patterns affect all of our relationships - with ourselves, others, and life in general.
I help folks when they, too, are at a fork in the road in their lives. This is a time of decision and growth when they realize something needs to change (physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually) and they are ready to embrace that change!
What message do you promote?
Most people don’t know WHO they are, WHY they are as they are or HOW they got that way. They come see me WHEN they decide something needs to change and I help them discern WHERE they want to go at that fork in the road.
I believe that there is always hope and a way to use the information we discover about the brain and strategies to a client’s advantage. I encourage them to extract the gold from painful lessons, be grateful for their previous strategies and move forward to plan something better.
In what capacity do you LEAD UP in your community?
I have engaged in volunteer activities with rehabilitation facilities, taught freely in clinics and hospitals and gifted help to those in need. I have been a voice for alternative medicine in provincial health council meetings to promote implementing changes in the Canadian government.
In business or in life, share a struggle you overcame that other women can relate to
I went from being in a small country office and medical clinic to morphing my business online, learning how to navigate zoom and social media platforms. I feel the whole world can relate to this!
What is the most rewarding aspect of what you do?
The most rewarding aspect is the transformation in people’s lives.
How do you SHOW UP?
I show up unapologetically direct but gentle with people. I believe in honoring their time and giving them the greatest value possible. I am thorough and detailed in my treatment plans.
If you could give one piece of advice for women who are entering the workforce or launching their own business what would that be?
You are entitled to be whoever it is that you desire to be, despite pre-conditioning.
Please provide your name, company, anything else you want others to know about you, and all of your URL’s and social media handles
