"We often find ourselves unable to move forward due to the enormity of the situations that are presented to us. We may feel stuck, tired, and at times, hopeless. So we armour ourselves to face the world. This armouring occurs in the form of addictions such as overeating; using drugs and alcohol; isolating and repeating patterns of toxic relationships. As a result our hearts become numb. We move through life with an armored exterior, fearful of experiencing our feelings and emotions. By creating a safe environment, I help unlock and release pain."

"Life is filled with transitions, losses and pains that can be challenging to navigate and process while trying to function in the many roles we fill. We are expected to learn how to cope as we go, but can be left feeling depleted, unfulfilled, or stuck. We can become consumed with the past and anxieties about the future which rob us from being present in our lives. I value mindfulness-based practices and believe in the positive impact it can have on effectively managing stress and symptoms, disrupting patterns of reactionary behaviors and empowering us to live a more fulfilling life.

"Stories have always fascinated me. They have the power to move us emotionally, to educate and instruct, to entertain us, and to cultivate true compassion and empathy through the act of sharing a story with another. They are also a powerful vehicle for how we perceive, interpret, define and live our lives, yet sometimes it can be easy to forget that we can be the authors of our story, not just a character proceeding along some previously determined narrative."

For more than 25 years, I have been training doctoral level clinical psychologists. To do so, I have had to remain current with advances in the field and have benefited from the input of new ideas and techniques.
