Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self transformation.

~ Lao Tzu

My Thoughts on Therapy

  • Therapy should be a collaborative meaning-making process that happens between those in the room
  • The therapeutic process should evolve naturally and can be as short as a single session or multiple sessions that occur over a short or longer period of time
  • No commitment is required in terms of number of sessions or length between sessions
  • Therapy can happen with individuals, couples/partners, or with multiple members of a family; who attends from one session to the next can vary
  • Individuals are welcome to bring a friend, partner or family member for support if helpful

I work with individuals, couples and families to…

  • Develop awareness around your hopes and goals and act/interact with intention
  • Improve your ability to cope with symptoms of depression, anxiety, grief and life stress
  • Explore your relationships and social interaction
  • Build skills around empathy and compassion 
  • Become the parent and partner you want to be
  • Begin healing from trauma
  • Create a trusting relationship with your body
  • Enhance your self-worth and self-compassion
  • Strengthen your identity
  • Develop awareness around your hopes and goals as a couple and act/interact with intention
  • Foster understanding and appreciation for your needs and goals as individuals within your relationship
  • Improve your communication while exploring issues around parenting, finances, housework, intimacy, etc.
  • Enhance your sex life
  • Recover from infidelity and affairs
  • Build/Re-Build trust
  • Use your differences to enhance all aspects of your relationship
  • Develop awareness around your hopes and goals as a family and act/interact with intention
  • Foster understanding and appreciation for your needs and goals as individuals within your family
  • Build trust and communication within your home
  • Improve parent-child relationships and sibling relationships
  • Understand the impacts of mental health and trauma on individuals within the family and on the family as a whole and learn how you can be a support
  • Navigate the complexities of high-conflict relationships, family breakdown, divorce, and other life transitions (e.g., dealing with ageing parents)
  • Successfully blend families
  • Establish satisfactory in-law relationships

 

I also offer clinical supervision to fellow clinicians who are committed to ongoing professional development, accountability and best practice…

I view clinical supervision as an opportunity for practicing mental health clinicians to consult with a more experienced – or differently experienced – clinician around client and clinical situations that are a part of their practice. I encourage supervisees to dive deeply into exploring both the challenges and strengths within their work, while maintaining (1) a systemic lens; (2) high ethical standards; and (3) consideration for particular methodologies, theories and approaches a supervisee is most interested in developing.

As your supervisor, I am most interested in learning what your goals for supervision are, and what you most need from me in order to feel adequately supported in attaining those goals. Similar to therapeutic work with clients, I consider clinical supervision a collaborative, supervisee-focused process, and believe finding a good supervisor-supervisee fit is of utmost importance. When a good fit it discovered, I am not simply finding opportunities to “teach”, rather we both find opportunities to deeply connect and create new learnings, new meanings, and shift perspectives together.

For those working toward supervision hours with CRPO and CAMFT, I am an approved supervisor with the CRPO and a Supervisor Qualifying with CAMFT, which means I am able to sign off on supervision hours for both of these colleges/associations.
