Welcome! I’m a published writer and author who believes strongly in the healing power of writing. Whether you’re an emerging writer or someone wanting to learn the craft of written storytelling, I offer supportive, personalized programs and the opportunity to connect with others in safe, inclusive small-group workshop settings. Scientific studies have shown that expressive writing can reduce anxiety and depression, decrease blood pressure and even strengthen the immune system. Writing personal narratives can be a powerful part of a person’s journey to healing and health. I look forward to helping you unlock your powerful writing voice. Workshops for youth and children will also be offered.

Educational Advocacy

Welcome! I work to empower families and students who are navigating the public school system, especially when it comes to special education. As an Ontario-certified educator with more than 25 years of experience teaching in both Canada and the UK, I’m passionate about supporting students and families in order to ensure their voices listened to when educational decisions are being made, including those that pertain to services and accommodations for exceptional students.
