Certified OAMHP Member
I am a mental health counsellor with over 35 years experience health care, higher education and private practice. My professional license is with the College of Registered Psychotherapists (Ontario). To facilitate clients' recovery and growth, I assist with the integration of body, mind and spirit, turning intention into action. In addition, I am considered an engaging presenter and workshop facilitator. Areas of specialty include trauma/abuse, mood disorders, personal growth, therapy with First Nations clients ( including Residential School survivors) and the use of dreams and expressive techniques in therapeutic work. Clients and I work together to tune in to their whole selves, including immediate awareness of emotional and bodily cues. More recently, I have begun to integrate Mindfulness practices and somatic therapy techniques into my clinical approach. It is a joy and a privilege to work closely with people in a trusting professional relationship, as we seek to improve their well-being.
