In 1995, our daughter was diagnosed with a mood-related disorder, bipolar disorder. We had no understanding of what mood-related disorder was, how to cope with it, and even wondered what her future held.

Our daughter was getting the medical help she needed, however, as a family, we were left to fend for ourselves.  Taking care of yourself, along with many other lessons learned, are what I now teach other families navigating the tumultuous waters of mental health and substance-related disorders. Over the many years involved in learning how to help our daughter, identifying what has worked and not worked, and learning skills needed so our family could manage mood-related disorder more effectively, I felt a passion to be able to help other families with similar struggles to achieve a healthy, happy, strong family long-term…welcome Cool Family Solutions.

Cool Family Solutions goal is to focus on collaborating and partnering with organizations to support and guide the entire family through the challenges of mood-related disorder and addictions. One of the main ways we do this is through our 10-week course learning how to use LUV (listen, understand, validate) and ACE (accountable, commitment, engage) to manage difficult situations.

Throughout this time, I have also become a Distinguished Toastmaster and do public speaking surrounding mental health and addictions and became a Certified Mental Health First Aid through the Mental Health Commission of Canada. You can book a speaking engagement for your organization or book me for the Mental Health First Aid Course.
