I have had a psychotherapy practice in the Spadina Therapy Centre, at Bloor and Spadina since 2000. My training at the Integral Healing Centre of Toronto, informs my creative approach to psychotherapy, recognizing the importance of the mind and body connection. I gently encourage individuals to unlock psychic blocks and face issues of fear, anxiety, shame, depression and anger through dream work, guided meditation, artwork, visualization, and bodywork.
I also work with couples grappling with the various challenges that being in a deep relationship with another can bring. I coach couples to improve communication, and help bring a higher consciousness to the dynamic at play between the partners. The goal is to deepen the relationship and strengthen the bond. Sometimes I guide couples to develop a relationship vision that they both author. We identify the elements that will be most challenging and determine how to overcome the obstacles of realizing their vision..
I currently teach the first year trainees in the Integral Healing Centre of Toronto program, introducing them to the elements, theories of psychotherapy, bioenergetics and energy healing, and supervising them through the practical applications.
In addition to the Integral Healing Centre of Toronto program taught by John Went, I have taken a number of related courses and intensive workshops including work with Marion Woodman , Elinor Dickson, (Dream work) Steven Johnson (Character Structures), John Gottman, Sue Johnston and Terence Real (couple’s training, Levels I,II,III), Dick Swartz (Internal Family Systems), Christina Becker (Jungian Theory and Alchemy).
I am committed to creating a safe and sacred environment in which to explore undiscovered parts of the Self.
