I’m a registered clinical psychologist with over 20 years of clinical experience.   I am moved by a deep curiosity in human beings.  My passion is in finding ways of deeply understanding the person in the room with me.

 

ABOUT/ WHAT DO I DO

I see adults of all ages in for psychotherapy, for issues including depression, anxiety, relationship problems, trauma, bereavement/loss, and transition and life-cycle issues. Gender and sexuality and aging are key interests.  I use psychoanalytic self-and -relational psychology. These modalities allow for attention to a dynamic therapist/patient relationship, which I see as central to healing.  My aim for my patients is towards creating wholeness, vitality, creativity and openness, within an interactive and supportive relationship.

 

I am certified as a Focusing Oriented Psychotherapist.  Focusing is a modality which pays attention to how meanings are held in the body. This can be extremely helpful in facilitating blocks to shift on a deep cellular level,  when intellectual insight and understanding are not sufficient to create change — see www.focusing.org I’m especially interested in working with the inner critic, which  can be a transformational part of the self. I can also teach you focusing as part of a self-help practice.

 

Spirituality and its development has been in my life for decades, and this connection is a deep seam throughout my work.  I am trained in trauma counselling, including critical incident trauma and complex trauma.

 

I believe that as humans we are all in a process of growth.  As plants turn towards light and open up, unfold, and grow.  As humans, this growth may become stuck or interrupted.  But we turn towards the possibility of growth and change when the sun of interested and warm attention is given to us.
