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
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'thave 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, thatI started education and training and became
a Registered Psychotherapist (RP).
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 ofbeing present - Be Here-Now! 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
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 supportiveness,
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 19 years in private practice I have had the privilege of working with people of
different ages with different personalities, backgrounds, experiences and concerns.
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

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.
