My Background

Since the late 1990’s I have been passionately involved in the study of somatic psychotherapies. I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and a Certified Somatic Transformation Practitioner. 

My practice experience expands over 30 years with work in a variety of practice areas including addictions, family work and cancer care. In addition to my private practice, I work as an Assistant Teaching Professor for the School of Social Work at UVic. I also train and mentor a diverse range of community practitioners in trauma-informed practice.

I am a member in good standing with the B.C. Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) as well as the B.C. Association of Social Workers (BCASW).

My Approach

My work draws on the wisdom of the body/mind to help resolve trauma and bring people to a greater sense of groundedness and stability.

How I Can Help

My focus is on trauma work, particularly with respect to helping people to process life experiences and emotions without feeling overwhelmed. Often times nervous system dysregulation arises from medical procedures, accidents, assaults, institutional, interpersonal and systemic violence, abuse and neglect. My emphasis is on promoting a greater sense of calm, capacity and resilience.
