For over 35 years I have worked with clients in hospital, school and private practice settings.
In my therapy practice I see individuals and couples from a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. They bring a wide range of concerns and aspirations. Many are struggling with difficult emotions such as anxiety and depression as well as with difficult life situations. They feel stuck in unproductive thinking and relationship patterns. My experience in the neurosciences has sensitized me to the particular treatment issues faced by those with neurologically-related conditions (such as epilepsy, learning and memory issues and brain injury).
My therapeutic approaches are grounded in a relationship with clients that I try to make authentic, caring and collaborative. I draw from several therapy schools including humanistic, cognitive-behavioural as well as meditation and mindfulness-based approaches.
Essentially all approaches involve an open expression from the heart which serves to bring understanding, connection, and a sense of increased vitality and flexibility.
In 2005 I was awarded the Practice of the Profession Award from the B.C. Psychological Association.
