About Me:
I am a registered psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience.

I completed my hons B.A. and B.Ed. at Western University and taught high school for 5 years before doing my graduate degrees in Counseling Psychology as well as in Spiritual Theology at the University of British Columbia.

Since then, I have been a sessional instructor in the Education and Psychology Departments at the University of British Columbia, at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, and at the University of Guelph in Ontario. In addition, for the past twenty years, I have been employed as a therapist for counseling agencies in Vancouver, London, Burlington and Guelph. I currently have chosen private practice in in Guelph.

How I Can Help You:
With my education, experience and passion for understanding human behaviour... I can help you make your life work. Whether it's your marriage, your career, your family, your 'self'... I can help you figure out why on earth you would do/say THAT. I can help you figure out how you sabotage yourself and how you can set yourself up for success. There is so much potential for living life better than many people do. Rather than fumbling, stumbling or spinning in confusion, pain or frustration ... or simply 'settling' for a 'this-is-as-good-as-it-gets' life - I can help you build or rebuild your relationships, ground your identity, make sense of your behaviour, set and achieve your goals, understand and work out conflict, overcome addictions, obsessions or depression, heal debilitating trauma, repair mistakes, deal with spiritual crises and loss - and basically move through whatever difficulty has come between you and a happy, healthy, loving life.

Additional Training and Qualifications:
I am a registered psychotherapist in good standing. In addition, I am a trained EMDR therapist. EMDR is a well-researched methodology for treating trauma and is considered world-wide to be best practice for treating those who have experienced traumatic events. I offer EMDR to all my clients since it is helpful in both capital 'T' trauma - as well as the small 't' trauma which we have all experienced.
As well I have completed:
Level 1 and Level 2 at the Satir Institute.
Dual Diagnosis Training
Emotionally Focused Therapy Training

Most significantly, I have the experience and skill to help you change your life. What I do actually works It works for me... for my many clients, and it can for you too.

Therapeutic Orientation:
I believe we are designed with remarkable resilience, profound insights, access to powerful transformation, and the capacity to live life with abundance, forgiveness, freedom and joy. In our work together you will learn many truths about yourself... and it is a fact... the truth will set you free. Give yourself a chance to live life better. You can do it. I can help.
