For 30 years as a clinical social worker and a psychodynamic psychotherapist, I have enjoyed working with adults in private practice. It has gifted me with conversations about what it means to be human. Continuously seeking new ways to support people with life's traumas, depression, anxiety and feelings of low self- worth has led me to become very interested in the intersection of Buddhism and psychotherapy.

Psychotherapy is a very particular kind of conversation where you learn to observe the habits of your mind and how they sabotage you and your relationships. With time you consider new ways of being in the world and gain relief from emotional and physical pain, and live with more joy and creativity.

I am interested in helping fathers and mothers experience the transition into parenthood and help them with the enormous challenges that it brings to their life, their work, relationships and family. As well, support them as they navigate each stage of parenting including, "empty nest", menopause and midlife.
