I am a registered Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with CRPO. I hold a diploma from the School for Psychotherapy and Emotional Bodywork (1999) and am a member of the Canadian Association of Psychodynamic Therapists (CAPT). I have a broad range of experience, with clients, in the areas  depression, anger,  anxiety and chronic illness. I am empathetic and respectful to a client’s process and offer a confidential and non-judgmental environment where my clients can explore their issues. My approach is always client-centered; this is the client's journey; they hold the pieces and stories to which I offer trained insight and exploration processes from which they gain new understanding of their life patterns and can move to forge new life pathways. The therapeutic goal is for a client to enter into a life-long dialogue and awareness with themselves so that, after formal therapy has ended, they may continue to make healthy life choices for themselves. I draw from a wide modality of techniques and experience when working with my clients including dream interpretation, creative expression, movement, somatic emotional bodywork,myth,relaxation and visualization

I offer workshops on Stress Management, Relaxation and Visualization to the general public as well as corporate and not-for-profit workplace environments.

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” (Michelangelo)
My role, as therapist, is to assist a client to understand their unconscious dynamic, to work towards an emotional awareness which allows them to change their life patterns and release that which binds them from living a more fulfilling life.

I offer a free ½ hr phone consultation to new clients.
