"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."

"There are times in our lives that we just can not seem to get a handle on how to handle the challenges in our life. Sometimes our genetics play a role. Other times, life, and all its challenges, gets overwhelming and we forget our strengths and resources. During these times, it can be helpful to work with a trained therapist to support you as you find your way back to your healing, your own happiness and peace. ​Whether online or in-person, I invite you to connect authentically and together, we will rediscover resources, coping mechanisms, and use your values to move you towards the life you hope you live.

"My approach is to acknowledge that we all suffer at certain times. However, it is how we make sense of, cope with and transition through our life challenges that defines who we can become as a person. The "Three Doors" represent the body, speech and mind. I can assist you to use your body (movements and actions), speech (tone and language) and mind (thoughts and patterns) to release physical, emotional and mental blockages. The journey will empower you to appreciate, rebuild, and transform into a more authentic version of yourself. Check out my reviews: https://411.ca/business/profile/10245704"

"Therapy is an opportunity to explore the different pieces of the puzzle that make up who you are and how you interact with the world. On your journey of self-discovery, I will walk alongside you, offering support and guidance, as you increase your awareness of the impact of different experiences, teachings and worldviews on how you function and make choices in your daily life and relationships, especially during challenging times or transitions. When you explore, accept and connect with yourself and others genuinely, you can move towards healing, balance and fulfillment."

"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. "

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."
