As a therapist, parent, and spouse, I understand how challenging relationships can be and how difficult it can be to break old unproductive patterns of relating. In my early life, I was unable to connect beyond the surface level with my partners due to limitations and fears within myself. Fortunately, I worked determinedly to forge a deeper, more conscious connection with myself, which has helped me to open up to others and forge warm, connective, joyful and lasting relationships. As a result, I am not only a much better and more available partner; I am also a warmer and more dynamic, engaged parent, therapist, and friend.
My personal and professional experience with parenting, co-parenting, mediation, multi-cultural problem solving, and my sexuality training help me relate with my clients and give meaningful guidance to help them solve problems. I am a highly-trained relationship specialist who has extensive training that includes the work of John Gottman, Esther Perel, Sue Johnson, the Bader Pearson Developmental Model, Imago, Attachment Mastery with Diane Poole Heller, Somatic Experiencing, The Satir Institute, The Centre for Relational Intimacy and Advanced Sexuality Training at the University of Guelph.
I have a warm, connective, engaging yet practical approach to relationship work. I focus on you leaving sessions with a more robust sense of yourself and how to connect with others in a satisfying and productive way. I use an integrative approach to assist my clients with relationships, codependency, communication, anxiety, avoidance, conflict resolution, self-esteem and confidence in their ability to create lasting robust and nourishing relationships throughout their lives.
