For 21 years I went on diets in an attempt to lose weight. Every time I was able to lose weight, I always regained the weight plus more. Up and down I went. After finding myself once again overweight, I finally realized the fast and easy diet approach was not working. This is what started me on my mission to learn the truth about why I was unable to lose weight permanently and what I would need to do to be successful. Over the next 10 years, I searched within myself and outside myself for true answers. I was able to finally learn the truth about how to lose and manage my weight. Now, I want to share what I learned with you. All the knowledge and skills I learned resulted in the book: Transform Your Mind, Transform Your Weight. For 20 years I have counselled youths and adults with a variety of mental health, behavioural, and addiction issues. Over my 20 years of work experience in the Social Services field, I have obtained numerous certificates in topics like: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Stress and Anger Management. I have a Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree with a specialization in Psychology. I also have a Post-Graduate Certificate in Human Resource Management. I am a member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists, and Psychotherapists (OACCPP) and a former member of the Ontario Association of Child and Youth Counsellors.
