About Sarah

I am a trauma-informed clinical social worker/therapist, reiki practitioner and health services research associate living with a connective tissue disorder (and co.).

My passion for understanding and improving the experiences of individuals, families and communities touched by illness is the driving force behind much of my work.

I am currently offering complementary 1 hour reiki sessions as I complete my Master Teacher certification.

If you’d like to learn more about me, you can read my story of how growing up with chronic illness led me to where I am today.
