My Story


I was born and raised in Canada in a city called Hamilton. I have lived and worked here all my life with my primary focus being on helping people to change problematic behaviours. 


 As a highly sensitive person, and intuitive empath who worked in the Criminal Justice System for 20 years as a Probation Officer, I was able to cause dramatic shifts in my clients who were struggling with substance abuse, homelessness, domestic violence and mental health challenges.

In 2018 I started to hone specific techniques with my clients in the practice of mindfulness, inner child work and mindset training. In 2020 I decided to start my own coaching practice  Free To Be You Coaching, that has helped hundreds of Empaths from around the world.
