Mountain Stream Wellness
I often work with individuals diagnosed with cancer and their caregivers, helping them make lifestyle changes to support their healing journey.
Cathy has worked in the medical industry for over 20 years as a Medical Radiation Technologist. Cathy’s journey in the health & wellness field goes back to her childhood. She grew up on a farm where garden produces, preserves and farm-raised meat were plentiful. Her father advocated for change in the healthcare system and was heavily involved in bringing universal healthcare to Saskatchewan, the first province in Canada to adopt this system. Over the years, Cathy’s passion for helping others and the qualities passed down from her father grew as she began experiencing health issues and witnessed family struggle with their own issues. Realizing that there is more to healing than what conventional medicine can offer, Cathy explored other modalities which are currently still relevant in her life today in keeping issues in check and finding balance Branching out from her training as an MRT she went on to become a yoga teacher, emotion code/reiki practitioner and Functional Medicine Health Coach.
In her spare time, you will find her out in nature, gardening, hiking, kayaking, biking, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing in her spare time. Meditation and yoga are a big part of her life keeping her grounded, calm and centred. Cathy loves to try new recipes and experiment with different eating patterns, she has come to learn that our bodies provide great feedback when you listen. She loves to spend her evenings curled up with a cup of tea and a good book.
Cathy is passionate about helping individuals reach their wellness goals through an individualized approach addressing all four quadrants of healing, mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Our bodies have an amazing innate ability to heal, it can be our ally and teacher. The health journey is not a race we will work together as a team taking one step at a time, forming habits that are tailored to you, habits that will become routine.
In your initial visit, we will discuss your health goals, challenges and vision for your future thriving self. Together we will figure out a roadmap to your goals with specific steps to get there. YOU get to decide what action steps are relevant, reasonable and attainable to your vision of health. I will provide a non-judgmental, safe, and compassionate environment where your needs are heard and acknowledged.
As your personal health coach, my role is to provide accountability and support to help you make lifestyle changes and take action steps towards your goal. If you are feeling overwhelmed with the thought of change, or your progress has halted, then Health Coaching is for you. Cancer has been prevalent in my family, I have witnessed them struggle and feel called to help individuals and their caregivers through this all-to-common journey.
