Her passion lies in mind-body practices that lead to emotional balance and physical health.

Completing a BA in Psychology and Sociology in 1988, she traveled and worked in India prior to completing a Masters degree in 1992 in Social Work from the University of Toronto focussing on clinical and community mental health. Madeleine then went to to work in the mental health system for 25 years in many capacities from developing programs for the homeless mentally ill in Toronto, First Nations communities in Lillooet, to inpatient psychiatric units at UBC hospital with adults and children, finally opening a private counselling practice in 2005 specializing in trauma, anxiety and chronic pain.
