I am a Licenced Mental Health Counselor and a Registered Nurse in the State of Washington
University of Toronto: BScNursing (1992), Masters of Education and Counseling Psychology (2001)
I have been practising for over 15 years in a variety of settings with individuals, couples, and families from diverse backgrounds.
My foundational theoretical orientation is humanistic and psychodynamic. I use Emotion Focused Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, CIMBS and Transpersonal therapies depending on the needs of the client. I also draw upon the latest research on neurobiology to guide my practice and offer concrete effective tools.
For those who are interested, I offer energy work as part of my sessions.
I believe that the relationship with the therapist provides a foundation of safety and trust from which you can explore and understand your feelings, thoughts and behaviors. With greater insight into yourself, comes greater freedom to feel, think and behave differently.
