I bring to my practice knowledge, reality, experience and understanding. The vast array of individuals, couples, groups and families I have had the honour of traveling with. It has enabled me to draw on the toolbox of extensive trainings, experience, and learning. As a life long learner, all my clients are experts in themselves. I simply facilitate this journey as they take the lead in exploring, discovering, treating and moving towards healing, growth and acceptance in whatever lies in their path. My role is to hold that space and pace in a therapeutic manner that is unconditional, challenging, yet with nurturing balance.
