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 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, and integrated with other approaches, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a trauma therapy helpful with many other difficulties as well.
Some of my clinical approaches are described on this website to give you a sense of how I work with clients. 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.
As I focus on meeting the needs of my current case load and on developing capacity among local therapists, I am unfortunately not currently accepting new psychotherapy clients. I don't have a wait list, but sometimes I am able to provide customized referrals. If you are a therapist seeking consultation regarding complex trauma, or if you are seeking experiential IFS learning as you consider further IFS training, let's talk!
