Thank you for visiting my site. I am a registered psychotherapist with over 35 years of experience providing psychotherapy in university, hospital, and hospice settings, and currently working in private practice.


My areas of specialization are: Contemplative Psychotherapy, Growing Old, and Supervision and Mentorship of Psychotherapists.

As a psychotherapist I am commited to your healing and fulfillment. I offer a person-centered, existential approach, integrating dreamwork and depth psychology. I have formal training in Jungian psychology, Buddhist psychology, Morita therapy and Compassion-focused therapies. My approach is flexible and depends on the needs and goals of my clients.


The clients who most appreciate working with me are interested in the big questions about life, such as: How do I cope with and make sense of loss, illness, and change? How do I live with purpose and commitment? Am I being true to my values? What would I do if I wasn't fearful? What is love? How do I let go?  And, what life choices and styles are condusive to my healing and wholeness?

If you are interested in this kind of inner work, I wholeheartedly welcome you to make contact.

Why Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy begins with the understanding that we are more than meets the eye.  Human life is complex, dynamic, and evolving, and it is not uncommon for us to feel as if we are a mystery, even to ourselves!  


Some ways we access the deeper dimensions of ourselves are through dreams, waking images and symbols, poetry, and music. Developing awareness may also include lifestyle choices such as purposeful silence, deliberate slowing down, service to others, times of solitude and retreat, and so on. 

Psychotherapy benefits us by providing a context for listening carefully to the otherwise unplumed dimensions of ourselves. The psychotherapist keeps us true to the journey, providing skillful encouragement and inspiration. Psychotherapy often includes a psycho-educational component.

Psychotherapy helps address emotional, physical, mental, interpersonal, and spiritual imbalances and is useful in learning to deal with anxiety, uncertainty, sadness, fear, upheaval, and angst. 


I offer counselling on-line, by telephone, or walk and talk sessions. 

I encourage you to contact me to arrange a 20-minute complimentary conversation to determine if we are the right fit.
