My practice is focused on building empowerment, balance, self-esteem and self awareness. Fifteen years in the social services field, working with a large and diverse clientele, provided me with extensive experience and a valuable professional foundation. During that time my deepening interest in psychology, meditation and holistic counselling led to more in-depth exploration and training, and eventually the establishing of a private psychotherapy practice in 2006. I have a masters degree in psychology, an applied diploma in holistic psychotherapy, and an avid interest in the philosophy of mindfulness and its therapeutic applications.
By combining cognitive, experiential and transpersonal approaches to therapy, I assist my clients in working through the challenges involved in such issues as stress, trauma, anxiety, grief and relationship issues. Cultivating awareness and empowerment by learning to understand feelings, patterns, needs and choices as they arise, allows clients to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their place in the bigger picture of life – ultimately learning to rely on their own unique sources of inner strength and wisdom.
A confidential and compassionate environment is assured at all times, supporting you through the process of change and growth at a pace that is right for you. My approach consists of a combination of talk therapy, life coaching/counselling and complementary holistic modalities, with a strength-based, client-centered philosophy.
