    "Mindfulness shows us how to be more at ease through the ups and downs of life and the many struggles that come with being human. With a bit of practice, and the help of a teacher, this freedom is available to all of us."

    I am passionate about helping others develop skills and confidence to live their lives with greater ease and well-being.


    I am a Registered Occupational Therapist, and mindfulness and meditation coach. I am also the founder and director of Union Yoga + Wellness in Toronto, where I offer stress management workshops, meditation classes, day long retreats, and one-on-one coaching.


    As a long time student of Buddhist meditation and psychology in the Theravada tradition, I attend regular silent retreats to support and deepen my practice. I feel fortunate to have practiced and studied with renowned teachers including Joseph Goldstein, Steve Armstrong, Kamala Masters, Narayan Liebenson, Will Kabat-Zinn, Greg Scharf, DaRa Williams, Pascal Auclair, Darryl Lynn Ross, and Jill Davey. I am currently enrolled in a 2 year Community Dharma Leader Mentorship program through True North Insight.


    My greatest teachers are my children, and Mother Nature.
