For nearly 40 years I’ve enjoyed working with children, teens and adults in school, hospital and independent practice settings, providing assessments, counselling and psychotherapy.
Working solely in private practice now, my focus is on psychotherapy and counselling in adults and couples who bring a wide range of concerns and aspirations. They come from all walks of life, religions, ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientation. Many are experiencing difficult emotions such as anxiety and depression; they may 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 approaches 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.
