"The therapeutic relationship is a 'collaborative' one, with a focus on establishing and maintaining a safe and trusting relationship with clients, so we can openly explore the preferred changes in their lives, that they hope for and find ways to relieve symptoms that continually get in the way. These symptoms frequently include, negative thoughts, emotions and actions, that interfere with achieving their hoped for changes. My clients often experience a significant reduction in symptoms, within the first few sessions."

"It's important that you acknowledge yourself for taking the step of finding someone to provide guidance. In my thirty years of experience I've learned that a big part of the healing occurs as a by-product of the relationship between client and psychotherapist. When this relationship is grounded in safety and compassion, the relationship blossoms and healing occurs. My working style is client centered and collaborative. It invites self-inquiry--leading to a deeper understanding of issues and their root causes."

My theoretical framework is relational, using both talk therapy and/or creative/expressive arts modalities. Following your lead, I listen/witness and attune carefully in order to attend to your specific need. We start with where you are most comfortable, which means that talking, imagery, dreamwork and silence are all welcome. Although I work flexibly between short term talk therapy (psychodynamic psychotherapy) and expressive/creative arts, we safely build our relationship, while co-creating in our therapeutic studio space."

"I have a formidable passion for helping my clients energize a joyful, loving and creative life. Let me help reduce your suffering, and overcome obstacles to your happiness. I want to help you achieve your goals and experience more creative flow, loving-kindness and joy in your life . My other goal is to protect your confidentiality and make you feel protected and safe during sessions. - - - How do I go about achieving this? Initially I do my best to make you feel comfortable. I listen with curiosity and empathy to build a therapeutic relationship based on kindness, compassion and unconditional regard. Research amply shows that this is the most helpful element of "talk therapy" no matter what modality the therapist uses. Once in session, I find that people feel at ease with me because I am naturally engaged, authentic and direct. I practice Martin Buber’s and Humanist psychology's philosophy of being fully present in a relationship framed by mutual respect. My approach is the opposite to that of those movie therapists where the therapist is silent and writes on a pad, aloof and distant. "

"Deciding to seek support is not always easy. Typically it's made when a conflict gets to the point where it can no longer be managed alone. Once the decision has been made, there can be fear or unease around talking about vulnerable emotions or life situations. I recognizes the courage that it takes to reach out for help, and endeavour to work from a framework of empowerment so clients can uncover their inherent strengths and abilities. Solutions to our troubles often lie within, however the journey to uncovering these is one that many people struggle to walk alone."
