Radical Remission Coach & Workshop Instructor
I only offer virtual coaching sessions
I am grateful to be able to “pay back” the support I received during my cancer journey by offering my presence and learnings to others as a Radical Remission Coach. I was first introduced to the healing factors of Radical Remission in the summer of 2018 when, shortly following my diagnosis with locally advanced HER2+ breast cancer, a friend gifted me a copy of the book. It changed my life - both during my treatment and recovery while I implemented the healing factors one at a time - as well as now, as I live the healing factors in keeping with my intention to live well.
I am a lifelong learner. Having begun my working life as a corporate/securities lawyer on Toronto’s Bay Street, my natural curiosity leads me to teachings that will both continue my personal healing journey and add to my skill and knowledge base. It is for this reason, that I am now certified as a Radical Remission Health Coach & Workshop Instructor, as an Associate Coach through Integral Coaching Canada, as a Mindfulness Meditation Teacher through the Mindfulness Center of Bethesda, MD, in Somatic Attachment Therapy through the Embody Lab and am currently engaged in further studies to become a Somatic Experiencing(TM) Practitioner as well as a teacher of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction through the rigorous program offered by the Mindfulness Center of the School of Public Health at Brown University.
By way of background, I am also a California Board Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist, Nationally Certified Practitioner of Chinese Medicine in the United States, and a Clinical Nutritionist and past owner of Root of Health Acupuncture & Wellness in San Jose, California. I started out my working life as a corporate/securities lawyer at McCarthy Tétrault in Toronto and as General Counsel of the public company, Draxis Health Inc.
