The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

My first career was working as the Women's Fitness Coordinator for the YMYWCA, from there I developed the first Pre and Post Natal Exercise Class in Canada. The more my role extended into the psychological realm, I decided to go back to University to get a B.A. and then an M.A. in psychology to get more grounded in this helping role.

From there my career has moved into the psychological where I have been a licenced psychotherapist for 14 years. I love witness people's lives shift into more loving connection at home and into more creativity at work.

In the past year, I have decided to bring all of my professional work together in a body, mind and spirit way. I went back to school to become a professional coach and my career has taken off in another very exciting way. I have written a book called Breakup Breakthrough and Learning to Love Again. http://www.fastpencil.com/publications/6324-BREAK-UP-BREAKTHROUGH And I have started writing a blog joanneweiler.com  This stage of my life I am focused on the bigger context where my impact can be preventative helping people really step up in their lives. Life is waiting for YOU!
