As a Christian counsellor I have a long association with the Christian community both as a member, attending Christian colleges and universities, and also working in a Christian counselling agency. As well, while I am open to dealing with beliefs, theology and Christian narratives, what I focus on with Christian clients is how best to live out these beliefs and narratives in their lives and in their contexts. Using therapeutic resources and tools helps Christians to live a life within the priorities consistent with Christian practices and the Christian community.

I was born and raised in England for the first eight years of my life. My parents were a great Christian couple who had both been lifelong Sunday school teachers - they met that way! Now I have been a therapist for last 40 or so years, I can still hear particularly my mother’s words of balance, perspective and a healing spiritually based approach as to what to do next as I work with couples, individuals, adults and teenagers. Please feel free to contact me to see whether I have the approach you are looking for.

I am a Christian, born and raised Catholic. I believe that spirituality and eternal life are more connected to who we are and how we practise God-centred living than which church we attend. Spirituality is may central to your life, and it's something we will bring into the therapy room as a source of guidance, support and insight into the issues you are dealing with.

Jesus Christ is the center of my life, Eph. 1:17- 19 is the focus of my practice and prayer is the foundation for both. I am a mature, professionally trained (10 yrs university) therapist with a heart to see healing. My training and experience is in both psychology (understanding the mind and emotion) and theology (one's spirit and relationship with God). My Christian counselling is Biblically based and prayer focused. I work with clergy and their families and am on Focus on the Family Pastoral Counselling and referral list and Families Canada referral list.

Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist
151B York Street, London, ON N6A 1A8
When counselling, I consider the whole person (e.g., the individual’s mental, emotional, physical, social, spiritual, and vocational condition) and align my counselling intervention with Christian principles and perspectives. My counselling approach is eclectic, but primarily involves client-centred, solution-focused and cognitive behavioural therapy techniques. In addition to counseling, I provide leadership support to church leaders. I help board members, pastors, and other church leaders deal with clinical and human resource problems that are beyond their level of expertise. I provide consultations, coaching and mentorship to help the leaders perform well personally and professionally.
