And A Little More ... The Formal Stuff

I've worked as a Health + Fitness Coordinator, Special Education Teacher (K-12), Elementary School Counsellor, Mental Health Specialist, School District Department Head and Therapist/Owner in private practice (specializing in the treatments of anxiety, depression and disordered eating).

 

I have degrees in Exercise Science, Special Education and Clinical Psychology, as well as post-graduate certifications in Narrative, Cognitive-Behavioural,  Mindfulness, Play and Art Therapies.

I own Redsand Creative, a graphic design company specializing in brand development and print media.

I enjoyed a long career as a competitive swimmer and lifeguard and spent many years as a swim instructor and coach of kids aged 4 to 20.

 

I have degrees in Psychology and Graphic Design + Illustration, with many Fine Arts and Life Drawing classes along the way.

With everything we create we try to bridge the gaps between age-old wisdom, current research and real world application, so that we may each live more fully from our Zenter.
