I grew up in the inner city of Toronto and began my work there counselling and facilitating groups for women of all ages and backgrounds who were struggling with chemical dependencies and food/body images issues . After obtaining my Bachelor of Social Work at Ryerson in 1996 at the age of 25, I moved to British Columbia and continued my work as a therapist. In 1998, I obtained my Masters in Social Work from UBC. My graduating research on Jewish Women and Body Image was published in the Journal of Collaborative Therapies shortly thereafter.
For over a decade, I have worked as a therapist and group facilitator with individuals and families for social service agencies and in private practise while also completing an intense 2-year training program in Multigenerational Family Systems Therapy at Pacific Coast Family Institute in Vancouver.
