My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist with an interest in holistic healing.
I graduated in 1976 with a degree in Sociology.. After raising a daughter, I decided my true calling was to help others navigate the difficulties life can bring, and assist in healings of the heart. I went back to school after 30 years, and graduated with a Masters in Psychology and five years later a Doctorate in Naturopathy.
As a practical, interactive, solution-focused therapist and holistic therapist my treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. With sensitivity and compassion, I help clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues
I encourage you to succeed in your life by leaving the past behind and helping you to take action and reach your goals.I am energetic, and direct while empathic and compassionate of your situation. Discussing the problems you are experiencing in your life with me can provide an alternative perspective, allowing us to discover appropriate and healthy ways on how to resolve the troubles you are having, and how to deal with things you can not change. By talking openly, you learn to modify your situation and prevent the same issues from disrupting your life.
Whether you call it therapy or coaching: wellness and success come with positive, nurturing, supportive ideas that make you feel better about who you are and what you can achieve! Talk therapy can also help enrich your life by bringing the people that you love closer to you.
“When we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present….we experience heaven on earth”
Having a Doctorate in Naturopathy allows me to support you with finding a healthy balance in your world and maintain positive relationships and gain new insight. I can suggest supplements and herbals that aid in your healing while working to regain your sense of self and purpose.
The most important criteria of “therapy” is a feeling of validation, and knowing that your therapist, or guide, or mentor, or whatever label you give them is open to hearing and listening –being with you in your situation, supporting you to find the solution that brings solace, peace, serenity and joy to the quality of your life, which I call a “wellness” philosophy– with common sense.

I love this quote:
“Recognize that life is what you get when you’re born … living is what you do with it.”
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
Therapy takes as long as there is a healthy measure of engagement between the client and therapist. An ethical therapist will prompt movement, but ultimately is a choice the client has the right to make to determine when they feel therapy is complete.
Psychotherapy is a method of promoting awareness to create change, it is provocative, inquisitive and can be of great assistance in moving an individual or couple out of the same patterns of behaviour.
