I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology. My Bachelor’s Degree included double majors in Psychology and Sociology because I believed one could not separate the individual from the profound influence of the family or society.
Since completing my Master’s Degree in 2000, I have continued with my training in a variety of areas including Positive Psychology, short term Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (with David Burns), Clinical Hypnosis and Strategic Psychotherapy (with Michael Yapko), Conscious Loving (with Kathlyn Hendricks), as well as Couples’ Imago Therapy.
I have also enjoyed much formal experience outside the therapeutic realm while training with organizations such as Abraham-Hicks (the law of attraction) and Landmark Education. Big take home messages included: we decide and create what’s possible for our lives, and the notion that what we focus on gets bigger.
Through all of my training, my focus has been on personal growth and learning the perspectives, tools, skills and structures for people to become the best version of themselves- as well as to create the best lives for themselves.
