Wisdom from Life's Experiences
In 2010, I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I then made a life-altering decision to learn to love myself. I had been traumatized by incest, physical & emotional abuse by my family, estrangement for 20+ years from my 3 children and using substances to cope. Growing up I kept to myself & at 14 I found the man "of my dreams". I married at 17, later moved to Argentina & in 1996, my world imploded with infidelity and spousal abuse. I returned to Canada without my children & 14 years later, lost and suffering horribly from PTSD, I had a spiritual awakening and sought help.
Learned to Love Myself was born from my experiences and today I am a mental wellness activist & philanthropist. I fundraise through my services as a Self-Love Mentor & Speaker and donate a portion to mental health organizations from my mindfulness colouring book and card series, “Love, Kindness, & Compassion” which were created to encourage love for the self, others, & our environment.
I am very passionate about being of service and host a podcast, The Power Hour of Self-Care through The Mental Health Warriors based in England wherein my guests and I discuss topics of self-care and ending the stigma of mental illness.
My soul purpose is helping to inspire more love, kindness, & compassion
Believing in Mental Wellness for all
