We are Whole - Body - Mind - Heart - Soul
I bring into my work as a therapist an interesting mix of training and life experience. I began my educational journey in Bible College and Seminary and received my first masters in Biblical Counselling in 1986. Then life took me on a 14-year sabbatical and there I faced some difficult life experiences - an abusive relationship, an addict, divorce, welfare and single parenting. Working through these experiences taught me first hand what transformation can be about.
The term wounded healer felt very applicable as I completed my second Masters at Trinity Western University in Clinical Counselling in 2000. I’ve been in private practice as a registered clinical counsellor now for over 20 years and in that time, I’ve spent many hours helping people find that inner voice of wisdom inside themselves, whether they were healing from abuse, trauma, anxiety, depression or the many other things that came through the door.
For a number of years I also taught classes in the Counselling Psychology department at Trinity Western University and supervised therapists in practicum and therapeutic work settings. Currently I am turning a new corner, having completed my training to be a spiritual director. In that light I bring contemplative spirituality, shadow work, the enneagram and dreamwork into what I offer as a therapist and soul companion.
