In my work as a therapist for over 25 years, my training, education, and work experience span a wide diversity of cultural viewpoints and therapeutic approaches in both California, and Vancouver.
I have worked for crisis & suicide prevention centres, residential facilities for chronically mentally ill clients in crisis, and drug and alcohol recovery programs. My previous workplaces include an Elizabeth Fry Drug & Alcohol Counselling program, Family Services – Vancouver Incest and Sexual Abuse Centre – and the Vancouver School Board where I taught classes in development and communications. I have facilitated thousands of groups. And I have been in private practice for 16 years.
