My own life experiences have led me on this journey. Since I can remember I have always had a heart to see people living the life they were meant to live and witness that potential in those that choose to work with me. I have been led to work in many parts of the world from India, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Malawi and right here in Toronto and the Durham Region directly with underprivileged, homeless or at-risk youth, survivors of human trafficking, people from different developmental stages and life transitions including seniors in long-term care. Sometimes things happen in life and we do not know how to unpack everything ourselves.

Relationships are hard. When things aren't going well, there's nothing more difficult than trying to deal with another person, especially someone you love. It can leave you feeling overwhelmed, confused, heartbroken and alone. It can get you questioning everything you ever thought was real about your relationship and wonder how you'll ever get things right side up again. Don't give up. I know it's not easy, but it can get better.
