Through my extensive knowledge and training in wellness, nutrition and mental well-being, you are in safe hands. I provide 1 on 1 coaching sessions, twice per week and daily check-ins that keep you on track so you're never left feeling lost or alone.
My unique and effective program provides the structure and tools to eliminate disordered eating while getting to the root causes of the issue.
This program is divided into 5 categories that I call the 5 keys. Each key approaches healing from a separate facet and comes with a series of lessons, modules, and techniques that will be provided at every coaching session.

Jack.org is the only charity in Canada that partners with young leaders in every province and territory to improve youth mental health outcomes in their communities. Our reasons are clear: suicide remains the leading health-related cause of death for young people, accounting for 25% of youth death, and most young people still don't get the support they need when they're struggling with their mental health. The pandemic has only exacerbated this emergency, with youth across the country consistently at higher risk of experiencing poor mental health outcomes than any other age group. Their work aims to enhance young people's ability to recognize struggle in both themselves and their peers, seek out appropriate mental health support and resources, and advocate for systems that are better able to meet the diverse and complex needs of young people. Our goal is to ensure that every young person in the country gets the help they deserve.
