Married over 20 years … divorced almost 20 years … mother … grandmother … sister … friend, peer, dancer, walker, reader, inquisitor, quilter, photographer, and lover of the outdoors … who has a huge belief in the healing power of relationship … love for families of all sizes, shapes, and compositions … and hope for lasting personal change and improved well-being. That’s me. After obtaining Masters and Doctoral degree of Education in counselling psychology from the University of Toronto at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, I qualified as a Registered Psychotherapist, Clinical Fellow of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, and Gestalt Therapist. This means, even when a client sits alone with me in the therapy room, I remember and consider their inherent interconnectivity to others, their community, and past. Through my midlife career change I have accrued fifteen years, and counting, of clinical experience in child and adult mental health working with individual clients, couples, and families. I like working from an experiential, “here and now,” perspective. My interests in family systems, positive psychology & wellness, mindfulness, alternative therapies, and most recently the new adventures and advances of neuroscience in clinical psychotherapy, inform my work.
