Meet Your Host

´╗┐Sarah Good, Occupational Therapist

Hi, I'm Sarah! I live and work in Ottawa, Ontario as an occupational therapist and mindfulness teacher.

Both in my personal and professional life, I use nature and mindfulness meditation to bring calm and joy to each day! I often incorporate a walk into treatment sessions or lead a meditation.

I have been working as an occupational therapist for 18 years and have been practicing mindfulness meditation regularly since I became an OT. I am a firm believer in life-long learning and engage in on-going professional development in areas including women's health occupational therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia, motivational interviewing, acceptance and commitment therapy, pain management and trauma. I have completed an intensive training program at the Ottawa Mindfulness Clinic in order to use mindfulness techniques to work with my clients. I also teach a course at the Ottawa Mindfulness Clinic.

I am currently the Topic Editor for the Women's Health column in Occupational Therapy Now (published by the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists). I have presented to other occupational therapists in the areas of mindfulness, pain management, women's health and sleep through the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists.
