Beginning or continuing a therapeutic exploration of self-discovery, growth and change can often feel daunting.

Finding the right therapist, one who is a good match for you and your particular needs, may seem to

make things even more challenging.

It's my hope you find here on this site the information you need to comfortably take your next step towards the relief

and wanted changes you seek.  

All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.

- Martin Buber

About  

In my twenties I began practicing yoga and meditation. Perhaps this was

the beginning of my self-growth and therapeutic journey - although I

certainly wouldn't have  called it such at the time. About a decade later I

began a more conscious/'official' self-growth period with my own

personal work with psychotherapy and bodywork.  I benefitted so

significantly from these endeavours, and learned to love and appreciated

the processes so much, that I started education and training and became 

a Registered Psychotherapist (RP).10805750_10152905842752629_8003816993235060270_n

That journey began more than twenty years ago. I am still excitedly,

learning and growing from my work, my clients, ongoing education and

life.  I am looking forward to the next twenty - and to possibly meeting

and working with you.

Psychotherapy: my practice | my approach

Relief!  Stressful relationships (personal, family, work), depression, anxiety, anger, loss/grief and conflict are some of the

things I can support you with in order to help you find relief, clarity and well-being. I am skilled at helping clients and

couples stay present, grounded and focused.

Emotionally resolving a less-than-ideal past (which often interferes with present life experiences)  optimizes a desired

and  fulfilling  future  -  a future you get to define and create from your new found clarity.

Most of us have heard variations on the benefits of being present:  Be Here-Now! photo-1426200830301-372615e4ac54

I can help you with being present;  which is where cognitive  and emotional

self-awareness is accessible. I find that being present, with oneself and others, is

the only place from which effective, conscious, lasting choices and changes

can be made.

 

My approach is non-judgemental, client-centered and grounded in the client's emotional, cognitive and physical present

moment reality.

Respectful and compassionate therapeutic interventions  [that include support, encouragement and gentleness

balanced with the appropriate amount of challenge] are what I strive to bring to each session.

Creativity, intuition, and playfulness are often close at hand.

During my 20 years in private practice  I have had the privilege  of working with people of different  ages with different

personalities, backgrounds, experiences and concerns.

UNCONDITIONAL

Willing to experience aloneness,

I discover connection everywhere;

Turning to face my fear,...

I meet the warrior who lives within;

Opening to my loss,

I gain the embrace of the universe;

Surrendering into emptiness,

I find fullness without end.

Each condition I flee from pursues me.

Each condition I welcome transforms me

And becomes itself transformed

Into its radiant jewel-­like essence.

I bow to the one who has made it so,

Who has crafted this Master Game;

To play it is pure delight,

To honour its form -- true devotion

Sessions 

How often shall I come for a session and how long will I be coming for sessions?

Weekly appointments are common and often most

ideal. That being said, every client is different and

needs to consider various factors to decide what is

best for them: i.e. their personal need and

schedules, my availability, their budget, travel, etc.

Clients in crisis/unmanageable stress may want

to come more often in the beginning and less often

as their work progresses.

A short term series of sessions can benegotiated for

clients with a specific concern they wish to focus on,

process and resolve.

 

5 Ways To Get The Most Out of Therapy

Initial Session

During the first session I will ask you questions

about your expectations, goals and previous

therapy experiences. As well as gathering necessary

info and gaining insight into your needs, this will

help determine if we are a good client-therapist fit.

This is also a good opportunity for you to ask me any

therapy related, clarifying questions you may have.
