Our Wellness Team
Jodi Tiller MSW, RSW - Founder. Psychotherapist. Mother.
Jodi truly believes when a baby is born, so too is a mother. It is her rebirth. As an expert in Postpartum Depression & Anxiety, Jodi has dedicated the last 17 years helping mother’s navigate the joys and realities of motherhood with confidence + calm. She is on a mission to create a more mother-focused culture where mothers receive the support and love they deserve. A culture that celebrates the birth of a baby AND the birth of a mother.
“I want nothing more than for mother’s to love themselves enough to honour their needs and desires, give themselves limitless self-compassion, allow themselves to be human, to trust that ‘good enough’ is enough, and find joy in the every day.” jodi
All mothers are doing their best. Always.
The Universe gives you exactly what you need at the exact time you need it
The only way out is through
When something feels off, it is
Social media is both a blessing and a curse
When we accept what is, magic happens
Loud music heals. Singing loudly to loud music is even better
Love and compassion – for your self and others - is the answer
We all need to slow down
We all need to pay attention.
Being a Parent is a great honour. And a great responsibility. The biggest responsibility being the state of your inner world while parenting. Self awareness is often the missing piece to experiencing love, joy, calm and confidence while parenting. As parents, we need to focus on ourselves, not just our children. That is how we become the parents we want to be.
Angela Growse, Physiotherapist, FCAMPT
As an experienced manual Physiotherapist and proud mother of two, 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.
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.
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.
Krista Hicks, Paediatric Physiotherapy
I am very excited to be part of the Rebirth team and to offer the families in London the option of Paediatric Physiotherapy! I received my Master of Science in Physiotherapy from McMaster University and have been a member of the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario since 2003. I have worked in Paediatrics throughout my whole career and have loved every minute of it. I love engaging with the children in a playful, holistic way to help them accomplish their developmental milestones and become successful independent individuals in their environment. Meeting and supporting the child’s family is also a huge part of this job and I feel honoured, humbled and grateful to be entrusted with this responsibility. I am a mother of three amazing souls and know how important it is to for the whole family to be supported through the ever-changing development of children. I truly believe it takes a village to raise children and I feel Rebirth’s community is the village we are all looking for!
I have had the privilege of working as a Paediatric Physiotherapist in Canada, Scotland and Dubai. The diversity of these health care systems has allowed me to acquire many new skills and approaches to looking at your child’s health and wellbeing. Within the 7 years of working in Dubai, I became a transdisciplinary therapist, meaning that when I work with a child I am incorporating their PT, OT, SLP, social and educational developmental goals into a fun playful session. My goal is to work with your whole team to support you and your child through their developmental growth in all aspects of their life.

Rebecca Robertson, Breastfeeding Counsellor, Birth & Postpartum 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.
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.
Adrienne MacDonald, Postpartum Doula
New parenthood can feel both exciting and overwhelming. Nothing can prepare us for this journey. Sometimes, the only way to get through the day is with the help and support of others. Some of my best and most valuable postpartum experiences were receiving the support and encouragement of another person when I was feeling vulnerable. It is through these moments that my passion for helping others navigate the postpartum period emerged.
I believe that when it comes to parenting, there are often 100 different ways of doing the same thing. It’s our job as parents to choose what works best for our family, and it’s my job to provide you the support you need to make safe and healthy choices that help you achieve your goals during the postpartum period.
I am a mother of two children, two dogs, one horse and a cat. I am currently completing my Postpartum Doula certification through Doula Training Canada and am fully insured as a postpartum doula in training. Some previous work experience that I bring into this new role includes many years volunteering in crisis intervention with Victim Services as well as a career as a legal assistant, where I learned both compassion and professionalism.
Keri Patterson, Full Spectrum Doula
I was inspired to become a doula after learning of the invaluable support and transformative experience that close friends had with their doula during labour and postpartum, and I’m thrilled to have found my passion in this work. I work collaboratively with care providers, partners and families to help foster a supportive and informed team. As a Full Spectrum Doula, I extend the doula model of care to people across the reproductive spectrum, including pregnancy, birth, fertility, abortion, adoption, surrogacy, miscarriage, stillbirth, and postpartum. I am a trained professional and graduate of Fanshawe College’s Doula Studies Program and can provide emotional, physical and informational support that is individually tailored to fit the unique needs of each client.
Additionally, I believe that my Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and previous professional experience with working front line at a counselling agency has given me a deeper understanding and appreciation to the diversity and resiliency of individuals and has fuelled my commitment to build a practice of compassionate care, autonomy and respect. When I’m not supporting individuals and families, I’m most likely to be found hiking (hiking all of Canada’s National Parks is a bucket list item of mine!), listening to 80’s music, playing board games with friends and family and eating copious amounts of guacamole.
Courtney Crawford, Postpartum Doula, Loss Counselling & Support, Childbirth Educator
Pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and parenting are a spiritual journey. Becoming a mother changes you, your perspective of the world, and your relationships with those around you. Women need to be supported in this journey and know that they are safe and seen, and feel soothed and secure. For many mothers, the postpartum period is a vulnerable time with ups and downs and a spectrum of emotions. Receiving compassionate support during this time can make all the difference.
I am a Mama of two wonderful children who teach me something new each day. Through pregnancy, birth and parenting I have discovered a power within me that I never knew existed. It is my hope to support other woman to connect with their innate power. I believe that if woman are supported, educated and encouraged in their journey that they can have thrive as mothers, make informed choices for themselves and their families, and truly know that they are enough. I am a teacher at heart and am passionate about equipping women and couples through childbirth, postpartum and breastfeeding education.
I am a certified Perinatal Support Practitioner (Full Spectrum Doula) and trained through the Babies Naturally program as a childbirth educator, birth and postpartum doula, and to provide breastfeeding support, and loss counselling. Through my professional education and 10 years of serving families and communities as a minister, I have had the privilege to walk with families through birth, growth, and the joys and sorrows of life, and death. I believe that my extensive experience in providing spiritual care to individuals and families has equipped me to be a compassionate and supportive doula for women as they navigate through this vulnerable journey of motherhood. I am particularly passionate about supporting women and families who are facing loss through miscarriage, stillbirth, or grieving a birth that did not go as planned.

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 - Clinical Counsellor
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.
Ashley Fader, MSW, RSW (Registered Social Worker) - Psychotherapist
Being a mom isn’t always easy. In 2017, I became a first time mom and experienced many feelings of isolation and loneliness; the advice I was being given didn't feel right to me, and I began to question my own intuition. Up until that point, I had spent almost 10 years working with children, but becoming a parent gave me a whole new appreciation for what it takes to raise a child and it reshaped my identity and provided me with a passion to help other mothers. So many women lack the space to explore all of the difficult emotions related to parenthood. Whether you had a traumatic birth experience, are having difficulty bonding with your child, are stressed out and are struggling with setting boundaries and self care, are having relationship difficulties since the birth of your child, or just aren't feeling like yourself, I can help. I would love to help you heal and find more joy in life. I have a Master's Degree in Social Work, and use a number of different evidence based approaches in counselling.
