With 20 years experience working in the community with clients with depression & anxiety, and issues with trauma, grief & loss, anger & chronic pain, it is my pleasure and honour to help people in sometimes the most difficult times of their lives. Having 17 years of working in Canada's largest inpatient mental health facility, I have participated in the care of thousands of clients with mental/emotional health issues. I prefer working with people who present with persistent symptoms (ie. people with PTSD, children of alcoholics, growing up with a "borderline" parent). Expressive therapies (art & psychodrama) are often very effective for these groups of people.
I enjoy helping people apply skills i.e. setting boundaries, assertiveness, anger/stress/anxiety management, building self-esteem & helping those cope with "difficult people". People with phobias, & severe bouts of depression do well with the "hands on" approach of a trained Occupational Therapist using exposure therapy & behaviour activation - help to regain health, functioning and freedom.
Self exploration is best achieved in a comfortable and friendly environment. I pride myself in quickly establishing a meaningful connection with my clients. Clients commonly remark that my unique strategies for functioning and my fresh perspectives are empowering and motivating. Clients comment that my office located on 3 acres offers additional privacy and comfort.
