After 26 years as a journalist reporting on other peoples' trauma, to my surprise, I discovered that I had experienced Vicarious Trauma, and then Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). 

My curiosity about healing prompted me to go back to school to become a Certified Wellness Counsellor.  I am currently finishing my final year of study in Somatic Experiencing, a body-based trauma therapy founded by Dr. Peter A. Levine.   

As a trauma educator 
I am particularly passionate about how the body supports and serves us as a warning system and as a guide to mental, emotional and physical health.
