As a Counselling Professional I have provided therapeutic interventions for individuals and families for over twenty-five years in a variety of settings. My clinical focus is primarily in the area of complex trauma. I have provided therapy in the Greater Vancouver area as well as overseas in private practice, community based organizations and school districts. As my work and interests have evolved I have had the opportunity to be involved in various research projects which have furthered the application and understanding of some of the most effective trauma therapies that are available for individuals dealing with PTSD and Complex trauma. Along with seeing clients in my private practice, I have also enjoyed guest lecturing and teaching in local academic institutions and supervising Clinicians as well as Masters Level students.

I am committed to empowering my clients and the public in terms of providing skills and information that will allow them to live more fulfilling and effective lives. I have provided numerous workshops and educational forums to the general public as well as community organizations. As I continue to grow professionally I constantly seek to provide the individuals and groups that I collaborate with the most current and effective means by which they can live richer, healthier and more fulfilling lives post trauma.
