After returning to work in 2010 from a leave of absence after her son was diagnosed with High-Risk Leukemia she began to realize that she wanted to pursue a practice of her own that would allow for a balance between doing what she loves (counselling and psychotherapy) and being able to ensure her children and husband remain her most important passion. In 2011, that dream came to fruition.
