Registered Psychologist – Mom – Chef – Gardener – Photographer – Radio Host – Author – Kindness Advocate
Dr. Theresa Nicassio is a kindness advocate who discovered the hard way how Food can be Medicine. Not wanting to leave her daughters motherless before they graduated high school, this dedicated mother immersed herself into learning everything she could about health and healing and was able to turn the trajectory of her life around. Sharing what she has learned along her journey, Dr. Nicassio now offers her multi-faceted expertise as a wellness specialist to the global community in her capacities as a registered psychologist #1541, speaker, raw food chef and nutrition educator, magazine columnist, and radio and TV guest. Passionate about public awareness and empowerment, Theresa also contributes to social, emotional and environmental transformation through social media and her blogs TheresaNicassio.com & YumFoodForLiving.com. Theresa is a 2015 Canadian Champion and 2016 Best in the World Award Recipient for her internationally-acclaimed book YUM: Plant-Based Recipes For A Gluten-Free Diet, a Top Finalist for the 2017 Canadian Mompreneur® of the Year Award, and is the host of the Dr. Theresa Nicassio Show on HealthyLife.net – All Positive Talk Radio.
POSSIBILITY THINKING, COMPASSION & INCLUSIVITY
Applying her broad psychological knowledge and skill base, combined with her personal experiences and challenges, Dr. Theresa Nicassio delights in challenging the status quo of limited and rigid ways of thinking. She embodies possibility thinking in the truest sense and embraces compassionate, choice-driven, and inclusive living as a central and ethical key for individual and societal transformation and healing. Her sensitivity to the unique and special needs of all who reside on this planet and her creative everyday solutions to social justice challenges, such as her “Inclusive Cooking” initiative, offers a new voice of hope, even (and especially) for those who are often left behind.
Theresa’s optimistic lens and unique perspective offers an unexpected dimension to her joyful and family-friendly voice that honours the body, the mind and the spirit, transcending and melting away age, ideological and cultural barriers that too often separate us from each other. Fiercely committed to make a difference by bringing community together in the current era of climate change, complacency and inexplicable health problems that have been on the rise, Theresa’s contagious enthusiasm is igniting passion and bringing out the often forgotten or overlooked hero that resides in the heart of each of us.
