As a therapist in a hospital mental health setting from 1971-2005, I set up and ran the hospital's program for adult survivors of child sexual abuse and other severe trauma, including adult trauma.
I am a psychologist with over 30 years of clinical experience providing therapy and counselling for individuals and couples. I work with adults experiencing difficulties with anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, relationship issues, and other problems in living. I am trained and experienced in a variety of therapeutic approaches, and have extensive experience with a wide range of problems. My approach to therapy is tailored to the individual client/couple, and varies according to problem, personality, available resources, and personal goals. I also offer consultation, assessments and treatment for psychological problems related to automobile accidents, workplace injuries, or inability to work.

A client who is able to share who they are and their life experience in a safe space with an empathic, respectful and competent therapist can create positive change.

At different times in our lives, we are handed challenges, and are faced with adversity. In these situations, we may feel like we need some support; someone wise and compassionate who can provide the opportunity to be heard, and the necessary guidance to move forward. You may be dealing with issues of depression, anxiety, problems in a relationship, grief/loss, trauma/post trauma, addiction, parenting, separation/divorce; or maybe you have just lost direction and feel like you need some realignment. Psychotherapy, coaching, or a combination of both offer you the opportunity to explore difficult or confusing terrain, to understand

I am passionate about supporting others in their personal and spiritual growth. I help people going through major life transitions achieve peace of mind, symptom relief, and bring back a feeling of self-worth, acceptance and self-esteem. You could say I help people bring back their aliveness while integrating different approaches to match the therapy to the individual needs of the client. My work is based on the theoretical perspective that our sense of self forms and develops in relationship, particularly with caregivers. Therefore, deep change occurs through the new and intentional relational experience that is co-created in therapy.

Sexual Abuse Counsellors

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
