I embrace a wholistic approach in my practice, integrating and combining many therapeutic and non-therapeutic approaches – continually learning and expanding. All with the focus and intent of enhancing, nurturing and sustaining the connections and relationships in our lives that matter most to us.
My Ph.D. in Psychology offers me a solid foundation of understanding and appreciation in the scientific and clinical study of the human mind and its functions. Over time, I have come to learn and appreciate a much broader perspective – a bigger picture of the human experience. Many therapeutic approaches as well as non-therapeutic teachings – music, theatre, Eastern traditions and practices, mindfulness – influence and contribute to my work.
A variety of therapeutic and non-therapeutic training impacts and influences my work, including:
PH.D. Psychology (Registered Psychologist)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Brief / Solutions Focused
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
Postdoctoral Diploma – Illness & Illness prevention

Music (singing, piano, guitar and harp) & Theatre (acting)
Integration of Eastern and Western traditions and practices (i.e. mindfulness)
Breathwork and Meditative stretching movements
