Professional Experience

I have 25 years of experience in the helping profession. I am a Registered Clinical Counselor and an EMDRIA Certified Therapist. I use a variety of counselling techniques,  such as  Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), CBT - Insomnia, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Behaviour Analysis, EMDR and Inner Child Healing.

 

My focus is on providing an integrative approach to therapy, focusing on the mind, body, spirit, heart, and emotion. Counselling provides the opportunity for growth, increased coping skills, happiness, healing, and wholeness.

Participating in professional development is a passion of mine. Gaining additional skills is a priority for me, as it provides best practice for my clients.

I provide individual  counselling for children, youth and adults.

 

My focus is helping individuals who are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, caregiver/compassion fatigue, phobias, insomnia and stress.
 

A bit more about me....

I enjoy the outdoors, especially hiking in Sedona, Arizona. Some of the images that are on my website and hanging in my office were captured there. I have always been drawn to animals and enjoy their companionship. I love hanging out with my 3 Shiba Inus (Keiko, Koichi and Michi) and my senior kitty (Zoe). For many years, I also had a fabulous horse named Spy.
