What is your personal relationship to or connection with mindfulness?
I am a teacher and student of mindfulness. I have had the joy of learning and training with the Ottawa Mindfulness Clinic. I continue to work towards nurturing my own personal practice which includes yoga.

Using mindfulness-based techniques in professional work
My interest is in using mindfulness-based interventions with caregivers of people with Alzheimer's and related dementias in individual and group therapy as well as to help people to cope with symptoms of depression and anxiety. Currently I work in a Geriatric Psychiatry community-based clinic. I also use mindfulness approaches as a yoga instructor in my teaching to group classes and 1-1 sessions.
