Introduction

Thank you for taking the time to view my site. I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW) and a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist (RMFT) with more than 20 years of clinical experience. The focus of my clinical practice is providing assistance to those who consult me in reducing the level of distress in their lives and improving the quality of their relationships.

I have a collaborative, strengths-based therapeutic approach in which clients are active participants. I consider that people are the experts on their own lives, and that they have the internal resources (often hidden) to overcome the challenges that they are facing.

I bring to this work an appreciation of the impact that crisis and change can have on the individual, as well as an awareness of the developmental phases and challenges that are an inherent part of couple and family life. I also have a strong belief in the opportunity for growth which can be present at such trying times. By drawing on this and my experience of how others may have faced a similar difficulty, we work as a team towards finding positive resolutions.
