With over 30 years of counselling experience, I have developed Holistic Expressive Therapy which addresses the the unique physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual needs of each family member in therapy. My choice and the way I use each expressive therapy always involves starting from where each person is at and is informed by your primary needs. The Centre For Expressive Therapy provides a nurturing, healing environment where we can build on the inner strengths and resources and then engage in a deeper exploration of the issues. Your resiliency is awakened, healing will take place, and growth will resume.

Family dynamics can be a complicated and sensitive balance within a home. This can be made increasingly complicated by divorce, blended families, individual parenting, spiritual values, health issues and much more. Counseling can provide family members a neutral voice and a place to be heard when fighting and arguing is impacting daily functioning and happiness, of one or more family members. We also help develop necessary tools to resolve conflict in a healthy way, bringing peace and harmony back to everyday lives.

Together we will work to develop strong communication skills between each family member, while nurturing and solidifying the family unit.

Registered Clinical Counselor / Canadian Certified Counselor

Unit 12B - 1601 Bowen Road, Nanaimo, British Columbia

Typically when I am working with a family there is usually one individual that is identified as "the one with the problem". When families come to therapy with this idea that is the first thing I address. I see the problem as the problem, not the person as the problem. This enables me to work with you and your family in a way that opens up space and freedom for new possibilities. Rather than diagnosing a mental or emotional flaw of any one individual, I work to help the whole family understand problem's and misunderstandings that can influences everyone’s life. When each person is supported to make the changes they each need to make, life becomes much more livable for everyone.

Professional Masters Level Registed Social Worker and Registered Clinical Counselor

Nanaimo, BC, British Columbia

Each family is as unique, as are all relationships. Today, families are not only made up of the traditional two parent same sex couple; but are blended, same sex, single parented, having children raised by grandparents and extended family and friends-more than ever in our history. There are times when all types of families experience difficulties that we can not resolve on our own. As your counsellor, I can provide you with a neutral perspective and provide suggestions and strategies to cope. I can provide a safe environment and provide mediation. All parties will be given an opportunity to express themselves openly, with the benefit of finding a resolution, clarity and peace.

Families develop patterns of being and each member tends to fall into a role. These roles are often passed down through generations. I look at how the roles each members is playing contributes to the stuckness of the presenting problems. We then look at how family members can balance the roles in an effort to create a more satisfying family relationship.
