Born: Toronto

Biggest business achievement: I founded Integrated Wellness, starting as one clinician. It’s now a collective of eight female mental health care providers.

Biggest obstacle overcome: I joined social media in 2018, sharing evidence-based research and tools about mental health. There were very few psychologists on the platform at the time and I had to overcome a fear of being seen in this different way professionally.

Biggest influences: Dr. Sue Johnson, creator of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and author of Hold Me Tight. Our meetings over tea in her sun-filled kitchen helped me push past my fear of failing my dissertation and find my voice in writing and clinical work.

Biggest lesson learned during COVID-19: In order to move through something, you need to be willing to allow yourself to sit in uncomfortable feelings without a true knowing of the outcome.

First job: Working at a small-town pizza shop

Advice I’d give the younger me: You can do hard things.

Favourite pastime: Being outside, with the opportunity to connect with nature and move my body, while having my two children and partner beside me.
