    How I Work

    It’s an exciting time to be working in the field of pain care and wellness. The focus on mind/body connection brings together many complementary disciplines. Although we’re only at the beginning of understanding the complex nature of persistent chronic pain, neuroscience tells us with evidence-based certainty that;




    I’ve had to let go of perspectives I’ve long held as a social worker, life coach, and instructor for fitness and wellness professionals. I believed that what was needed to be physically and mentally well was to set realistic goals for behaviour change and to challenge our existing thought patterns.


    Likewise, I thought this was enough to put us on the path to becoming better versions of ourselves. While much of this is true, it’s only a piece of the puzzle of healing chronic pain.

    If you were pain-free, what would you be doing right now?

    We must learn to feel our physical state, and become aware of what’s going on inside us, something called interoception. From this vantage point, we can address our unique body chemistry. If you’re experiencing chronic pain, you need to:


    • Teach your brain and nervous system to find calm and safety

    • Take control of your mental processes and change your mindset

    • Expand your way of thinking to enable pain-free movement


    This may sound complicated, but together we will work on simple, easy-to-learn techniques that can yield life-altering results. As you learn new skills, your brain changes. When we stop focusing on our symptoms, we stop noticing pain, and we can start to wire our brain’s circuits differently, in healthy, new ways.

    To release your pain, we’ll work with three interlocking components:


    Pain neuroscience education (PNE)

    The focus here is on better understanding your pain because when we understand where it comes from and why it’s happening, we often hurt less immediately. For some, this component alone is enough.


    Cognitive work

    Here we focus on developing a different relationship to one’s pain through cognitive work involving the reexamination of one’s beliefs.



    The third component is focused on movement, so that getting active again is no longer seen as a remote possibility. Getting moving also involves goal setting, so you can challenge yourself as you grow out of your pain and into your life.
