I work with individuals, couples and families, to heal from the personal and interpersonal obstacles that are preventing you from actualizing your unique potentials and experiencing a fulfilling, dynamic life.
My practice includes helping people overcome specific issues manifesting in symptoms such as relationship and intimacy struggles, anxiety, stress, depression, loss and grief, PTSD, eating disorders, addictions, as well as spiritual or existential issues relating to broader life themes such as meaning, authenticity, death and freedom.
Interpersonal Group Therapy: Developing the Psychological Wisdom of our Lives
In addition to individual, couples and family therapy I also offer on-going group therapy. This safe and creative group is for individuals who are interested in evolving a more intimate and meaningful experience of themselves and their relationships. It is designed for people who want to examine their style of relating both to self and others; explore new ways of relating, deepen their relationships, while transforming struggles such as depression, anxiety and grief into insight, joy and freedom. Processes that enhance self-acceptance and compassion are explored, while cultivating mindfulness of thoughts, feelings and speech in all circumstances.
I offer a warm, grounded, empathic and relational approach to therapy. At the heart of my work is the belief that through the exploration of experiential relatedness, between the client, and myself, awareness of barriers that restrict or diminish one's dimensionality can be recognized and from that insight, latent potentials emerge. This process supports you in finding your own most genuine voice, from which creativity, wisdom and freedom express themselves naturally.
I work collaboratively, focusing on the unique needs of each client, to identify your personal goals for change. Insight, awareness, acceptance and strengths building are some of the approaches I use to help transform maladaptive thinking patterns, destructive behaviors, and move toward a more balanced and connected life.
For the last ten years I have been supporting people in a range of therapeutic benefits: From increasing the capacity to experience insight, meaning, connectedness and love; to developing power and effectiveness in the world; to exploring the dharma; and opening to the mystery or spirituality.
In addition to being a Registered Clinical Counsellor, I have a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology and Ph.D in Psychology. My approach to helping people learn to re-connect more meaningfully to themselves and others, and realize their highest potentials, stems directly from my Ph.D work in personal and interpersonal transformative change.
I have published my work in various psychological publications as well as created transformational learning programs, led groups and retreats. I have also conducted research and have specialized expertise in the area of trauma and PTSD and am co-author of the book, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (2012).
