I continue to bring new learning and skills to my practice through ongoing professional education. Teachings in Neuroscience and Plasticity, Mindfulness, Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioural, Sensori-Motor and Emotional Focused therapies are incorporated into my work with clients. I also have training in Eye Movement Integration (EMI) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), effective brief treatment therapies for resolving past traumatic issues that interfere with present living.
Prior to establishing my private practice full time in 2004, I also offered organizational and service development support to agencies in the mental health, social service, health and housing sectors in Toronto and Ottawa.
