I have an undergraduate degree in Occupational Therapy and a Master’s degree in Psychology. I have worked as an Occupational Therapist and Psychologist in hospitals, day programs, doctor’s offices, community clinics and in client homes in Canada and the US.
I work with individuals with problems ranging from complex medical diagnoses to those wanting spiritual growth and self-improvement. I have used traditional and alternative therapies for my own healing and will support you in your use of any healing tool that works for you.
I have taken many courses to develop skills in psychological interventions and in other healing methods including Reiki and intuition development. I have Master’s level certification in Accelerated Resolution Therapy. In my own experience with counsellors I have known what it is like to feel cared for and understood and to feel let down. When we work together I will try to understand you and what you are experiencing, work collaboratively with you as the expert in your life, and I will see your strengths and successes.
I integrate therapy techniques that work best for you into our conversations including Cognitive Behavior (CBT) Psychodynamic, Dialectical Behavior (DBT), Solution Focused, ART, and Positive Psychology.
Specializing in therapies that focus on healing from dysfunctional family of origin and/or adult relationships, abuse, traumatic events, and painful life transitions
