I am a certified Reiki practitioner, Acupuncture student, Hoop-Fitness and Hoop-Therapy coach, but that wasn't always my journey.
I grew up in Dorchester, a small town in rural New Brunswick. There wasn’t much there, a library, school, post office, park, and prison. Just enough to hide behind to get stoned or drunk really. As a child I spent a lot of time alone restoring abandoned forts, picking blueberries/raspberries in the nearby woods, running through streams and reading the Harry Potter series (or really anything magic/fantasy related) on repeat. My social anxiety was a big struggle from a young age, I guess that comes with being bullied. My early high-school days were spent on a dark journey down a path of substance abuse. Stepping into a lifestyle that would spin me around and around I was never be prepared for the experiences and lessons that the following years brought to me.
Now I say dark, because I never expected for what to happen to happen. It wasn't always dark, actually, in all honestly, most times were pretty full of light and love. In high-school it was fun, I was good at getting fucked up and actually made friends doing it. "I don't have an addictive personality" and " I can stop whenever I want." were things I remember coming out of my mouth regularly. Who knew 12 years later, stopping wouldn't be so easy?
My “healing” moment came in 2012, when I up and left the Moncton night scene. Since leaving I've spent the following years on a journey through a few relapses, some big emotions, major healing and never ending self-discovery. My introduction to personal development which happened in 2013 opened up to me an entirely new wave of self-focus and passion. This focus allowed me to recognize what worked for me, what didn't work, and what changed needed to happen. I have studied and experimented with research proven (and fun) ways to implement behavioural changes that can lead to long lasting results and successfully reclaiming the true you.
After 20 years of anxiety attacks, and 12 years of substance abuse, My passion is to help others discover the path to recovery. My area of focus is mind and body detox, mental health and addictions - whether it be depression, anxiety, addiction, hormone therapy, weight loss I want to help you discover and reclaim your best self to create our healthiest and happiest planet.
