And the day came when the risk
to remain tight in the bud
was more painful than the risk
it took to blossom.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist in private practice in Guelph, Ontario. I provide support, insight, and learning opportunities for individuals, couples, and families. I journey with people who have decided that now is the time to invite a professional into the process of opening, changing, growing, and healing that they have already begun on their own.
I am registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists in Ontario. I have been trained and certified in Couple and Family Therapy; I'm a clinical fellow in the Canadian Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. I am also certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a trauma therapy helpful with many other difficulties as well. I assist people who are healing from disturbing experiences in the past or present to have greater health and happiness. Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an approach that I find many clients today are embracing. I completed IFS Level 1 and am delighted to offer IFS - on its own, with EMDR, and integrated with other approaches.
Some of my clinical approaches are described on this website to give you a sense of how we might work together. Due to moving on-line during Covid shut-down, and adapting to the needs and challenges of this unique situation, my website does not fully reflect the range of services I'm providing. Let's talk! If you'd like to book an initial consultation with me, we can explore the fit between your needs and my services. If, for any reason, we do not rebook, I provide referrals and a slight fee reduction for that initial consult. I hope this website will get you started in the choice process.
