Hello, and thank you for stopping in. I imagine that you are experiencing some kind of pain, and are looking for someone to help you make sense of it, and to work through it. ?Whatever your struggle is, be it feeling overwhelmed by a person or situation, chronic anxiety or low self-esteem, or feeling lost or stuck, a depth therapy is the best way I know to find your way through to a new place of self-understanding and hope.

How depth therapy works

A depth therapy begins with you just talking about what is troubling you. Everything you feel drawn to speak about, be it big or small, is important. Over time, I expect that you will also want to talk about your strengths, your hopes, and your fears. Together, we come to know you better. As the therapy relationship becomes safer, you may find yourself reaching new levels of honesty, both with yourself and with me. ?As we spend time together, I will also be listening for the unspoken, the out-of-awareness. This is helpful because so much of us is unknown, and of unfathomable depth and influence. You may have had glimpses of this part of yourself through flashes of intuition, your dreams, or if you have noticed yourself acting in ways that surprise you, either to your delight or dismay.

As you begin to change...

With time and attentiveness, the underlying, unconscious issues that have been getting in your way begin to show themselves. This is an important step towards change. ?Our shared goal in this creative process of working with your deeper levels is to help you find more of yourself, so that you can begin to live a life that is more satisfying to you, and that is more truly your own.

About me

My work life began in the corporate world, where I spent sixteen years in human resources, five at the executive level. In my quest to pursue my growing passion for working one-to-one with people, I then spent nine years offering leadership and resiliency coaching to individuals within the corporate context. It was during this time that I became interested in helping people to address the root causes of their difficulties, and this led to my enrollment in the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy. Early in my training it became clear to me that I had found my life’s work.?In my psychotherapy practice I have had the benefit of working with people of all ages, and from all backgrounds and walks of life. I also had the profound opportunity for eight years to lead journaling workshops for cancer patients and their caregivers.
