My love story

→ I am an up and coming psychology student consistently gaining knowledge on the importance of self care
→ I am a creative thinker and avid journaller

→ I am excited about all things and love to share that passion

A little bit about myself:

I am currently a psychology student studying in downtown Toronto, looking to do the things I deeply care and feel passionate about. I believe the greatest purpose we have in life is connection. Connection with ourselves and others through meaningful conversation. I am offering extremely unique services that will allow you to connect with yourself on a new and deeper level.

Fun fact about me:

→ I aspire to be a combination of Marie Kondo, Rachel Hollis and Brené Brown (high level organization meets hardcore inspiration meets deep vulnerability)
→ One of my fav topics of conversation is love, boys and romance!!
→ I just started going to counselling for the first time & am finding so much value in it
→ When I am not creative writing something in my life is off!
→ I have created consistent habits in my life that keep me grounded (meditation, journaling, exercise)
→ I want to talk about all the books I'm reading and podcasts I'm listening to!

Educational experiences:

  • High School Diploma - Photography Major at Etobicoke School of the Arts
