Design a Life You Love to Live


When you are looking for a therapist, it's important to find someone who you feel comfortable with.

I enjoy forming a deeply personal, caring  and empathic connection with each of my clients.  I have a relaxed style, and have a very comfortable and peaceful environment in my home office, located near the Georgetown, Ontario GO station.

Although therapy can definitely include difficult feelings at times, I am someone who has a quirky sense of humour that my clients tend to really enjoy.  As a result, sessions with me often include more gentle laughter together than one might typically expect in therapy.

In addition to having over 22 years of experience as a therapist, I also have been through a lot in my own life, so I am also very familiar with what it is like to be a client and the special mix of feelings, hopes and fears that that can include.

Before starting my private practice over 12 years ago, I was a therapist for over 10 years at Hamilton Health Sciences' McMaster University Medical Centre, predominantly in the Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence Care Centre.

I am currently beginning the third year of a three year Somatic Experiencing training program.  Somatic Experiencing is a neurologically and physiologically based psychotherapy that many people find provides them with much faster and more thorough results than does talk therapy alone.  I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Energy Psychology techniques (EFT, Zensight, TAT, and more), Energy Medicine, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and a variety of other approaches.

I am assisted in my home office by my two canine assistants:  Maggie, who is a 13 year old schnauzer-poodle cross and Jasper, my 3 year old beagle who is a St. John's Ambulance therapy dog.  Please advise me if the dogs' presence poses any difficulty for you.
