Do you live with Chronic Pain? Or a Chronic Illness? Is dealing with pain and or the health care system exhausting and all-consuming? Are you still looking for that one thing to help with your pain? Is it hard to manage your daily activities or the demands of work, school or home? I have developed a deep understanding of the complex physical, emotional, and social factors that contribute to chronic pain. It’s what I do! I’ve been there. I have lived experience with chronic pain which is now behind me. My practice is solely virtual with clients who are residents or physically located in Ontario. There is hope for Chronic Pain.
I have a Masters degree in Social Work with 30 years of experience working in healthcare and community settings. My approach is an evidence-based and holistic approach to pain management that empowers individuals to take an active role in their care. Pain Reprocessing Therapy is an evidence-based approach aimed at retraining the brain to manage chronic pain.
I am committed to helping my clients navigate the challenges of Chronic Pain. I prioritize building strong relationships based on trust and empathy. I strive to create a safe and supportive space where clients can share their experiences without fear of judgment. I believe that everyone can live a meaningful life, even in the face of chronic pain.

My practice focuses on Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT) and Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy (EAET). I prefer a "bottom up" approach to chronic pain, meaning feeling the feelings, using somatic tracking and leaning into positive sensations in the body, explore sensations without fear, with of course a sprinkle of "top down" education in pain science.
