What helps me offer an integrated and wholistic method for healing?
Years of research, training and experience.
My interest in health psychology started when I was an academic researcher working on a master’s degree in developmental psychology at UBC. This eventually led me to earn a master’s degree in counselling psychology at Adler University and later to get training and certification in Relational Somatic therapy. I continue to stay current with emerging research that is relevant to therapy and bring that knowledge into my practice.
It is an integrated approach that cultivates the natural bio-chemistry of the body, harnesses the power of the mind, understands emotions as both a guide and a means for regaining balance, uncovers blocks and reveals new choices – re-connecting you to your underlying state of wellness.
A combination of mindfulness based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Relational Somatic Therapy and findings from research in brain science, attachment, evolutionary biology and health psychology guide me in working with key aspects of the brain and nervous system to empower your healing.
My clients find relief from symptoms, feel more control, find a life of greater balance and feel more connected with themselves and with others. You can read some of their comments yourself:
