I always seemed organized, busy with containers and labels, forever trying out new systems to manage all my things and ideas. Then I discovered the joy and freedom of radically reducing all the stuff in my life and in my head – no more energy spent managing things. I became passionate about helping others find this magical ease in their lives too.
I’m a sought-after presenter / facilitator and I get to travel all over Canada sharing my enthusiasm with the great people in my engaging, practical workshops.
I’ve worked with kids and youth my whole career – first as a front-line clinician, and for more than 20 years I’ve been in senior management roles at a mid-size non-profit. I have training and experience in all areas of corporate management, as well as clinical and research expertise, and a particular interest in ethics, coaching, and teaching.
One bit of magic in my life is simple ink on paper – I have minimal material possessions until you count my notebooks, planner, bullet journal, pens, markers, fountain pens, inks… they all bring happiness and colour into my daily life 🙂 My clients have other magic treasures – music, makeup, cooking, art, crochet, sports – and after eliminating the clutter from their lives, these treasures get to shine!
(I’m also a tech wiz, full of tips on using apps and software to simplify things. It’s a different satisfaction than ink on paper, but still magic!)
For those who want to make truly radical changes in their relationship with stuff, I do individual consulting as well. I can also bring clarity to written communication – my freelance writing and editing declutters words to amplify the important messages.
I have a B.Sc., M.(Cl)Sc. (Masters of Clinical Science), am an Adjunct Professor in the School of Communication Sciences at Western University, and a Certified Information and Privacy Professional – Canada (CIPP/C). I’ve also done extensive coursework in counselling and ethics.
