Waiting For Safety



a question mark

waving in the wind,

holding to the fetal curl

and the safety of the winter womb.


not the gentle

kiss of sun,

nor stream voice calling,

can coax

that frond

to unfurl

one single moment

before it does.

As 2021 begins, I am not accepting new psychotherapy clients. For therapists seeking consultation for complex trauma or exploring integrating IFS with your practice, inquire about space in my consultation groups.

For an IFS trained therapist, go to: https://ifs-institute.com/practitioners


For couple or family therapy, go to the Canadian Association of Marriage and Family Therapy: https://camft.ca/page-18080

For an EMDR therapist, search EMDR Canada:


I am sometimes able to provide customized referrals.  Please feel free to circle back in a couple of months as my caseload

opens up a few times a year.
