a little about me 

I'm a Toronto based medical exercise specialist, trainer and nutritionist with nearly 10 years of experience in the field and a passion for client care. I work primarily with clients after they have been discharged from physical therapy or medical care and help them return to physical activity safely.

I help clients manage medical conditions and achieve their fitness and body composition goals through movement coaching, education and lifestyle change.

I believe in an integrative approach to health and wellness, with a focus on education and long term results. My background includes corrective exercise, neurology, herbalism, and the psychology of change. I am also well versed in comprehensive protocol development for a variety of populations. 

As a coach, I'm not here to heal you. I'm here to support you as you (re) discover how to heal yourself. 

areas of specialty

You're not alone. 

Life can be wonderful, but it can also be scary at times. And complex health conditions can be overwhelming.  I want you to assure you that are answers, and there are always to improve your quality of life.

If you're under the impression that healthcare practitioners are shining examples of health, that is not the case. We all have to face our own challenges.

I have struggled with weight loss and gain,  eczema/acne, poor digestive health, kidney dysfunction, chronic pain, PCOS, poor immune function. I have faced  depression, sexual abuse, and poor body image. It's a long journey no doubt, but each step I have taken towards my physical and emotional health I have done so consciously.

In this process, I have discovered the power of intention, persistence, alternative therapies, and inner wisdom. 

within us, we have an incredible, untapped potential for healing.
