About Me

Keeping up-to-date with recent knowledge, combined with close to 40-years' counselling experience, I provide creative, innovative, sustainable, and evidence-based solutions. Key areas of interest include social justice, lifestyle, mental health, addictions, and positive mindedness. I work with people, families, groups, work-teams, professional networks, and organizations to focus-in on their main areas of concern, and help them with personal growth, interpersonal wellness, and system enhancement strategies.

Education & Experience

Formal education in psychology, counselling psychology, community development, and systemic approaches. Master's level education. I complete more than 100 hours of continuing education credits annually with accredited training organizations. I specialize in Cognitive Therapy and using a client-centred approach that integrates appropriate adjunct therapies such as EMDR, Clinical Hypnosis, systemic therapies, somatic psychology (e.g., DARE); and innovations in couple and family therapy such as PACT and using DBT with high-arousal couples.
