I believe that healing is possible no matter how deep the wound. Sometimes all we need to do is take a step of faith into the unknown and enter into a safe space where we can “let go” and learn who we are amidst our pains or struggles. I approach healing from a holistic perspective by addressing how the body, mind and spirit are impacted by our past trauma and wounds. I offer tools for learning how to self-regulate the nervous system, thus allowing the body and mind the freedom to heal. Faith is also important to me, and I welcome the opportunity to integrate a faith-based approach to therapy if you as the client prefer that.

One part of being human is to learn how adapt to a life full of unpredictable experiences. We can develop behavioral or thought patterns that may have served us at one point but are no longer beneficial and need support to change. I heard a very simple definition of trauma once: “Trauma is a response to an event that we weren’t prepared to handle.” With this perspective, we can begin to understand how a wide range of life’s challenges can impact our mind, behaviors, and relationships. Our unique history and experiences have shaped the way we view the world and how we respond to it.

Someone who had a tremendous impact on my life once told me that while we are wounded in relationships, we are also healed in relationships. This reminder has informed my approach in therapy since the day my very first client sat in front of me. It is my hope that the therapeutic relationship we build together imparts just that upon you: restoration from both the wounds which you are altogether too familiar with, as well as those which you may not know are even there. It’s my privilege to provide the space where you can feel comfortable sharing. Together, we can find hope, as it is never truly lost.

I have been a therapist since 1978. I taught undergraduate and graduate Psychology courses at Ottawa University (11 years) and Rio Salado College (17 years).I specialize in OCD and obsessive sexual behaviors but have treated nearly every type of client and diagnosis over the past four decades. I'm told I'm personable and that people feel comfortable with me immediately. I'm a good nonjudgmental listener and I believe that counseling should be a deep but intriguing investigation - not a painful one.
