Hi there,

I am a professional 100 meter hurdler and a 5-time Team Canada member. My journey has been far from linear. A back injury took me off the track for 3 years. Although I made a successful return to the track, I experienced higher performance anxiety and self-doubt, struggled with low-confidence and developed a fear of reinjuring myself. Because of the “toughen up” culture in sports, no attention was paid to the mental aspect of my recovery. I became a counselor in order to normalize and help people overcome mental performance-related barriers.

As a professional athlete who has also experienced the effects of power and abuse in sports, I’ve made it my mission to create a space where clients can be themselves and where they are treated as whole persons, not just performers.
