Our Wellness Team
Jodi Tiller MSW, RSW - Psychotherapist and Founder of Rebirth Wellness Centre
From a young age, I knew I wanted to work with children and help them to thrive. After graduating with a masters degree in clinical social work, I started living my vision with a career in children’s mental health. I quickly learned that the best way I could help children was to help their parents. And as early in their journey into parenthood as possible. And so, over ten years ago, my work with helping mothers, fathers, and couples adjust to life with a new baby began. Becoming a mother or father is a significant life transition. It changes everything. But in our culture, we do very little to prepare, support, and nurture new parents – to ensure that they have what they need so they can give to their baby what she/he needs. In my experience (and humble opinion) it’s as if parents in our culture are being set up to feel like failures. And so I continue on my passionate crusade to help parents navigate the many waves of parenthood with confidence, skill, and a love for the ride.
Angela Growse, Physiotherapist, FCAMPT
As an experienced manual Physiotherapist and proud mother of one, I love being a part of the team at Rebirth. Multidisciplinary care has personally helped me to optimize my health and wellness in both pregnancy and everyday life, and has made me a better therapist for my clients. As with most things in life, achieving your health goals is always easier with trusted and empathetic support. I received my Masters of Science in Physiotherapy from McMaster University and have been a member of the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario since 2003. As a Fellow with the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapists(FCAMPT) I have engaged in many years of advanced orthopedic clinical reasoning and manual therapy skills, and I am currently an instructor with our national training program. I also hold a Certificate of Contemporary Medical Acupuncture and am a Certified Pelvic Health Physiotherapist. When choosing a treatment approach I like to consider your body as a whole within the context of how you move through your day, not solely focusing on the area you are struggling with. I love a challenge and appreciate the complex nature of pain with both acute and chronic issues. You will be invited to be an active participant in your rehab and I will only use techniques with which you are comfortable. I may use techniques such as manual therapy, acupuncture, spinal manipulation and therapeutic exercise to help you move well and fully participate in your life's adventures. My goal is to empower you and help you regain independence with your health.
Jaclyn Seebach, Physiotherapist
I am passionate about getting mamas and mamas-to-be active and am excited to be able to do this as part of the Rebirth Team! I want you to know that your body is strong and capable! I want exercise and day-to-day movements to be joy-filled and stress-relieving for you, not fear-filled, painful or another onerous thing on your to-do list. I’d love to help you actively pursue and maintain wellness by establishing an individualized treatment plan that is optimal for your lifestyle, current challenges and goals. Treatment may include exercise prescription, manual therapy techniques, acupuncture and education.
I completed my Masters of Science in Physiotherapy at Dalhousie University in 2009. Post-graduate training interests led me to pursue pelvic health (with a special focus on the female athlete), advanced manual and manipulative therapy and acupuncture through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute. When not at work, I love trying to keep up with my 3 energetic kids, running (usually slowly), being in the great outdoors and playing the violin and celtic fiddle.
Dr. Holly Beckley, BKin(Hons), DC
I always knew I wanted to be in health care, helping people, and when I discovered Chiropractic and how it could be used to help the body heal from injury, function at a higher level and prevent future ailments with a non-invasive, drug-free and hands-on approach, I knew I had found the right profession for me. I first completed my Honours Bachelor of Kinesiology Degree at McMaster University in 2002 and then attended the Candian Memorial Chiropractic College where I graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 2006. Believing in the importance of ongoing education and wanting to be able to offer my patients the best care possible, I obtained my Certificate in Clinical Acupuncture from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2010 and have been trained in Active Release Technique. I enjoy learning new ways of helping my patients and regularly participate in continuing education programs. I truly enjoy working with patients of all ages to achieve their health care goals. Whether it be to resolve an injury, to improve movement or flexibility or simply feel one's best, Chiropractic may be able to help you and I would welcome the opportunity to work with you.
Natasha Marshall, Registered Massage Therapist
Natasha Marshall, a London native and mother of two, received her diploma for Registered Massage Therapy from the D’Arcy Lane Institute here in London, Ontario in 2009.

Natasha’s clientele includes many families as a whole, including children, who share her perspective of optimizing one’s health potential. She has helped to treat low back pain, headaches and migraines, helped to increase patients’ range of motion and also decrease pain from stress and physical strain.

Sarah Zadorsky, Registered Massage Therapist
Sarah graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 2001 with a Bachelor of Health Sciences. It was her passion for the helping professions (and her own great R.M.T.) that led her to pursue a career as a Registered Massage Therapist. Since graduating from the D'Arcy Lane Institute of Massage Therapy in 2004 she has spent time working in a group setting as well as on her own. Sarah is excited to be returning to a larger practice at Rebirth Wellness and embarking on this new adventure with such a diverse and dynamic team of health professionals; "I believe a team approach is in the best interest of our clients".

Janet Bueckert, B.A., Registered Massage Therapist
Janet received her Massage Therapy diploma from the D’Arcy Lane Institute of Massage Therapy in 2008 with a 4.0 GPA. She then began studies toward a B.A. majoring in Psychology through Laurentian University. She graduated Cum Laude in 2013 and was awarded the L.A.M.P.S. Academic Achievement Award for the Social Sciences. She has taken French classes to work toward fluency in French and enjoys the process of learning in general. Janet’s Massage Therapy experience has focussed on achieving balance within the body, specifically with respect to musculature, in order to minimize discomfort in daily life. Janet understands that pain is a psychological, emotional and physical experience unique to each individual and endeavors to treat the physical pain objectively but compassionately. Most importantly, Janet believes it is important to provide client-focussed care where the therapeutic agenda may change based on the other competing priorities in the client’s life. She believes our bodies are sacred and are fiercely loyal to us, providing feedback and guidance in order to keep us safe and happy. It is her belief that the body work she does is profoundly special for this reason.
Dr. Natalia Ytsma, Naturopathic Doctor
From a young age, I knew that a career in health and medicine was in my future. Having spent time in doctor's offices and hospitals to correct a congenital heart defect, the idea of providing care to families in need and educating them on their health was something that I knew I had to do. It motivated me to always be cautious of how I treat my body and I grew to really appreciate what being healthy was all about, a lifestyle that ensures you take care of yourself from the inside out. I obtained an Honours degree in science and business from McMaster University in 2009 and gained experience in teaching, which allowed me to help others empower themselves with knowledge. Having also traveled throughout the world, I gained work experience in North America, Europe, and Asia, which allowed me to learn from different work ethics and cultures. I went on to study holistic medicine in the UK; and, I grew a passion to learn about natural medicine and how to help others use it to achieve optimal health. I learned to understand that there's almost always a root cause to a health issue and that you can use safe, gentle, and effective treatment to address it. Ultimately, naturopathic medicine was my calling.
After a rigorous 4 years of study at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, I completed my clinical internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic - with a full year rotation on the paediatric focus shift- and the LAMP Community Health Centre both in Toronto, Ontario.
In 2015 I moved to Beijing where my husband was working at the time. While there, I designed pregnancy and fertility workshops for a local spa and ran a health elective for local teens to educate them on proper nutrition, mental health, and fitness. While abroad, we got pregnant with our son and decided to return back to Canada to begin raising our family close to home. Currently we reside in London, Ontario and I am practicing at Rebirth Wellness Centre, a thriving place dedicated to empowering woman into motherhood and providing family based health care at its best.
Rebecca Robertson, Breastfeeding Counsellor, Birth & Post Partum Doula, & Childbirth Educator
I am a birth advocate, a breastfeeding educator, and especially an advocate for mothers and the choices they make. As a doula my main role is to support mothers and partners to ensure a satisfying and positive birth experience. I am trained in providing emotional and spiritual support, as well as physical comfort during labor. I completed a DONA training course in 2009 and it sparked my love for supporting laboring women. Since then I have been inspired to continue my learning to provide the best support I can with additional studies in lactation and natural medicine. Some of the things in my tool kit include massage, acupressure, and items to help with visualization and relaxation. I am trained in different stretches and birthing positions to improve pain tolerance and pushing efficacy, as well I give lots of encouragement! In 2012 I enrolled in a Lactation Medicine Program at the Centre for Breastfeeding Education. There I was instilled with this goal "To enable the mother to manage her own breastfeeding experience, so she will be empowered to achieve her own breastfeeding goals." I accumulated over 90 hours in lactation specific education, as well as hours in observation at their breastfeeding clinic. Since that time I have been supporting new moms as they transition to motherhood and begin the breastfeeding relationship. During my time studying Naturopathic medicine, I was fortunate to expand on my knowledge on lactation medicine as well as how naturopathic medicine can play a role in the perinatal care of women and their new babes. I am passionate about my job, and I bring lots of enthusiasm and love for what I do.
Michelle Maisonville, CD(CBI), SBD, Childbirth Educator
“The knowledge of how to birth is deep within me." - Unknown
You will carry the experience of your child’s birth with you forever. Your physical and emotional strength will empower you as a parent. Your connection with your partner and together with your child will guide you as you grow together as a family. As a mother and an educator, I recognize the significance of these intimate, precious moments and the imprint they will leave on your heart. Following my own birth experiences, I embarked upon the journey to become a childbirth professional in 2005, training as a Childbirth Educator with the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association (CAPPA). My background also includes training with DONA International, and certification as a doula through both Childbirth International and Stillbirthday. In my previous work as a doula, I've had the honour of attending a wide variety of births in both hospital and home settings. My passion, however, is in education. I want you to have access to accurate evidence-based information to make the best decisions for your family. As a member of Rebirth's Childbirth Education team, I am pleased to help expectant parents find these resources. Most importantly, I believe in your ability to birth and to access your own inner knowing. This is your birth. Trust in the process. Trust in yourself!
Tasha Gillies, Birth Doula
I’ve finally found my passion and my calling! Even though I’m a new Doula, I’m absolutely in love with every moment of it and I know this is what I was made to do. Pregnancy, labour and birth is a very exciting and memorable part of a person’s life. It’s a complete honour to be a part of it to provide physical and emotional support as well as to educate and provide information.
My passion in life is helping people in any way possible. Being a Doula has been life-changing for me. Being present to help someone through the whole experience and getting to see their reward at birth for all of their hard work is amazing. I am always looking to expand my knowledge to better serve my clients and to be the most informed I can about all aspects of pregnancy, labour, birth and postpartum. Most recently I took a course on VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). I love empowering people to ask questions and use their voice. After all this is your baby, your birth, your experience. You have the right to informed consent and to make decisions based on what you think and how you feel. It would be my pleasure to meet with you and chat.
Dr. Corrine Seeley (Ph.D., M.Sc., B.A.) – Infant Sleep Consultant
Dr. Corrine Seeley obtained her Ph.D. in sleep Neuroscience from Queens University, specializing in the role of sleep in brain development. She has published many research articles in well-respected, peer-reviewed journals and has given many public and university level lectures on the topic, including teaching a university level ‘sleep’ course. After 10 years studying and teaching sleep she had a son of her own and quickly realized how important sleep was for the growth and well-being of her child, and the entire family unit. She also noticed how little sleep education there was families and how many moms had questions about sleep and nobody to give them proper support. Now, as a paediatric sleep practitioner, she is devoted to making sleep education more widespread and helping families establish healthy sleep habits using natural, realistic and gentle approaches. Her practice is highly focused on parental education, a method that has been proven to be equally effective as cry-it-out methods. It is her mission to make this knowledge accessible to all new and expecting parents, and help them feel empowered navigating the wild world of infant sleep. Visit Dr. Seeley's Facebook Page.
Charlotte Brennan - Reiki Master
I am a mom of two bright and delightful boys who have taught me so much about life, gratitude and unconditional love. Curiosity, and the quest for personal growth, were factors which led me to study Reiki. Instantly, I realized Reiki was the overall healing modality for which I had been searching. During my studies I received a diagnosis which propelled me on a deeper journey of healing and self-discovery. This was when I was able to fully witness the healing powers of Reiki, both as a practitioner and as a client. In my Reiki practice, I work from heart-centred healing. Professionally and personally I focus on a wholeness approach - the mind-body-spirit connection. I understand that how we think, speak and act reflects upon our emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. Walking such a personal journey has opened an amazing door for me, inspiring me to facilitate in ones’ healing journey. While being relatable, approachable and compassionate, I offer a safe space to relax and assist you in creating your own story." I am a Usui Reiki Master/Teacher as well as a Level II Karuna Reiki Practitioner. My other studies include Shamanism, Metta Meditation and Bach Flower Remedies, amongst others.
Ramona Fernandez PhD, M.Ed. (Counselling Psych) CCC, FT - Psychotherapist
For the last 10 years I have dedicated my professional work to specialize in women’s reproductive health, fertility and reproductive loss as a counsellor, researcher, ethicist and professor. I am humbled by the majesty of nature, that brings together so many things with such precision at exactly the right times to make a life. I also bear witness to the deep suffering that comes when the imagined future didn’t work out as hoped. My knowledge to be your guide as you navigate this path comes from my professional training but also from the empathy of personal knowledge, as I’ve borne 5 pregnancies to bring into the world 1 beautiful child that lived. I am a psychotherapist with a specialization in perinatal health and reproductive loss. I have a Master’s in Counselling Psychology, Certificate in Grief & Bereavement, and a PhD in Health Professional Education on the topic of high risk pregnancies involving fetal anomalies. I’m currently an adjunct professor at Western University in Counselling Psychology and have taught at Western, Ryerson and Yale Universities.
Katie Wright, CPCC – Professional Coach
There is a strong need across the planet for human beings to live a life aligned with their values and purpose – a space to quiet the busy mind, and self-sabotaging voice so they may courageously speak their authentic voice and share their talent. I got into coaching because I had a voice to share. Though immersed in the business world for over a decade, I started my journey into coaching in 2013 with the Coaches Training Institute, an internationally acclaimed training platform, and became a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach in 2015. I did this while caring for my own small babe. As a mom of two healthy young boys, I know it takes a lot of strength and courage to step outside the ordinary and into the life of desire. Both motherhood & entrepreneurship call on this strength and courage daily.
Aside from helping to create a heart-centred, resonant population, fully experiencing my two boys and setting aside time to nourish ‘me’ is where I am supposed to be right now. This allows me to show-up as a healthy mix of knowing what’s right, combined with the stamina to get things done. I promise to push you toward your vision, hold you accountable to your desire, give you the space to figure it out, challenge your limits, and honour your inner leader. Live in harmony – fulfilled, at peace, confident, and strong.
