At the height of my early career, I was living in New York City, playing the cello on Broadway with Harry Connick Jr., and touring worldwide with Barbra Streisand. I had talent, wonderful parents back in Ottawa, and a seemingly glamorous lifestyle in the Big Apple…but my spirit was eroded.
Starting in childhood, I had been thrown life challenge after life challenge. Assault. Anorexia. Substance abuse. And being abandoned by people I loved. As a result, I stopped honouring myself—which meant I did not care for my mind, body or spirit. And so I engaged in many toxic behaviours and relationships that further brought me down. I was lost—and constantly in search for purpose. For meaning, in who I was. Constantly looking for me.
There I was: at a point in my life where it was quite literally “do or die.” I was either going to heal myself fully, or continue repeating the same life events over and over. It was a tough epiphany to come to, but it awakened a latent warrior-like energy I had within my soul.
From there, I embarked on intense training through Shamanism and other Spiritual and Energetic healing modalities, discovering methods and tools for positively facing my emotions and releasing the terrible effects of events that had been controlling my life for so long.
And through all of that hard work and training, I finally found peace, but most importantly - I finally found myself.
Living as a full-time single mother of two boys for 12 years - I understand firsthand what it feels like to struggle in a world that seems to constantly try to pull you down.
But more importantly - I understand the vital importance of taking care of yourself first, amongst all the struggles and responsibilities around you.
It is because of my experiences and my gifts as a healer and a cellist, that drive my passion and purpose in helping others make themselves a priority in their lives, in turn living each day with more authentic passion, purpose and joy.
By offering my gifts and experiences to my clients, I am able to help them break through wounded aspects within themselves that may be stopping them from achieving the things they want to achieve in life, and end toxic patterns of thoughts and behaviours that limit their capacity to be the best versions of themselves every day.
Working extensively as a master in the Healing and Musical Arts, my knowledge and experience helps me focus directly on each person's individual needs, offering them a sustainable approach to health and well-being.
