Growing up isn`t easy and it wasn`t for me either. I was an awkward kid who was teased a lot! My confidence took years to strengthen and lots of extra help throughout the years.
I am now a mother of 5, 3 amazing daughters and 2 outstanding step-sons....ranging in ages from 13-20. Watching them struggle through their teenaged years, reactivated my inner demons and fears of my past.
So I decided to quit my job of 20 years as a Flight Attendant for Air Canada and head back to school (scary and hard)!
After struggling with my own mental health for so many years, I decided it was time to hang up my wings, go back to school, and learn how to help others. And that's what I did. I received my diploma in counselling, specializing in Youth and Family Counselling.
I then went on to acquire a certificates in Coaching and CBT Therapy (Cognitive, Behavioral Therapy).
I have spent the past 5 years researching how the advent of the smartphone and social media affects teenagers and the impact it is having on their health, self-confidence, wellbeing and education of our teens (my own included)!
I also love my volunteer job at the Vancouver Crisis Center trained as a Self Care for Mental Health and Suicide Awareness workshop facilitator. In my spare time you'll often find me in the forest or hanging with my kids (if they let me!).
