Are you still asking for permission to heal? Growing up as a child, we had to ask our parents and caregivers for permission for everything. To go to the bathroom, to have a cookie, to go outside and play, etc. Somewhere along the way, we started to make decisions for ourselves. As adults, we noContinue reading “Permission to Heal?”

Are You A People Pleaser?
I have been a people please for most of my life. It’s a pattern I know well. When I was a child, I used this pattern to try to fit in with others, to make my Mom feel safe and to try to create safety for me. I tried to trace back to how IContinue reading “Are You A People Pleaser?”
Where Do I Belong?
I’ve often been asked how I was called to my mission of helping people heal. I’ve since realized, the reason behind my calling is actually a search for belonging. When I was young, my parents immigrated to Canada to have a better life. Shortly after their arrival, my father abandoned our family and my MomContinue reading “Where Do I Belong?”

Depending on what you need to heal from, different levels of commitment will be required from you. If you’re healing from aContinue reading “Why Am I Not Healing?”
How Committed Are You?
When my patients come in to see me, they tell me they want to be well again or that they want to heal. But, how committed are they to their health and healing? Are they a “whatever it takes” or an “as long as” type of person? Their answer will give me an idea ofContinue reading “How Committed Are You?”
Are You In No Matter What?
When it comes to your healing, are you in no matter what? It’s 5 am and quiet in the house. Everyone is still sleeping. I get precious time for myself. I reflect back on this difficult week and realize that I’m not the same person that I was a week ago. I’ve grown. Being ableContinue reading “Are You In No Matter What?”
The Doctor Becomes A Patient
Last week, I had to go in for surgery. It gave me the opportunity to be a patient for the first time again. This is how I felt: I took a deep breath as I approached the building.
