Hi, my name is Tamy!
During my years working as mental health therapist, I encountered a lot of people who were unhappy and dissatisfied with their life. In my own personal life, I also experienced similar dissatisfaction just like many of the clients I worked with. I started looking into non-traditional psychology and practices to improve my sense of control and wellbeing. And I decided to focus on positive psychology, mindfulness, and meditation. I started implementing these scientific-based practices in my own life and experienced positive results quickly.
I know how it feels to be unhappy and to lack any sense of direction in your life. But as I developed a better understanding of my own needs and learned to establish a positive mindset, I experienced a transformation from within. Regaining a sense of balance, purpose, and wholeness in my life inspired me to teach meditation.
I have a Bachelors degree in Social Work and a Masters degree in Clinical Social Work with a specialty in working adults and the elderly. I'm an experienced mental health counselor, group therapist and healthcare manager. I have worked with families, seniors and people suffering from depression, dementia, affective disorders, schizophrenia and addiction problems.
I also completed a Mindfulness stress reduction certification and a Integrative Restorative Meditation certification.
