Treena wants to help you supercharge your well-being! Her life experience and education provide her with a unique perspective. As busy working mother parenting two teen boys, she understands the challenges of living in a modern world that values appearance, perfectionism, and the desire to have it all.
As a young woman, Treena struggled with low self-esteem and body issues, including bulimia, so she empathizes with people who sell themselves short and limit their potential. Going through this experience has given her a non-judgmental attitude, unlimited patience, and a caring manner in her professional capacity as a counsellor because she knows from experience what it is like to be obsessed with thoughts about food, and the feelings of not being good enough.
As a keynote speaker and counsellor, she helps her people to feel more adequate, confident, and enthusiastic about making life-changing decisions. Her book Eating Myself Crazy: How I Made Peace With Food (And You Can Too) is an excellent tool for people looking to change their lives one small, positive decision at a time.
Treena enjoys skiing with her family in the mountains, riding roller coasters, and yoga.
