Announcement icon During the pandemic, I am only meeting with clients through a secure on-line therapy platform. At times, I do speak with clients by phone.
Life can be overwhelming, leaving you feeling helpless and alone. It is not easy to find your way forward. Recreating yourself in a way that embraces who you are and where you've been, to empower you to move towards a life you may envision, is not simple but it can be done. My goal is to help you find this path. Whether faced with a lifetime of challenges, or impacted by a single traumatic event, I bring empathy, warmth, compassion and understanding to the relationship. From that place of safety, I will support you to find the road to acceptance, healing, and peace of mind.
With over 30 years experience in education, research and therapy, I bring a variety of knowledge and experience to my clients. I am trained in Relational Psychotherapy but include many other strategies. My approach is strengths-based, and capacity-building in order to support people to create a meaningful life. I am a registered Indigenous Affairs Provider.
My background in Therapeutic Recreation, a profession that focuses on the role of free time engagements in creating a meaningful life, is one of the foundations of my practice. I believe that finding experiences in life that create positive emotion and express or develop personal strengths support feeling better, moving forward, and living well.
