I am endlessly fascinated by people. I am captivated by our stories, by our tragedies, and by our triumphs.
As a therapist it is a privilege to listen with intent to personal stories of pain, loss, recovery, and hope. I am a witness to human transformation. I am delighted to know I play a part in the transformation. I love my job!
I have been practicing family therapy for nineteen years. From 2005 to 2016 I worked for K-W Counselling Services (Kitchener, Ontario, Canada); a large not-for-profit family counselling centre. In 2016 I established this small and very special counselling practice for women and partners following pregnancy loss. I am known for a warm, compassionate, and focused approach as a therapist.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist, a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, and a Clinical Fellow of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. I hold a B.Sc. (Psychology) from Wilfrid Laurier University and an M.Sc. (Couple and Family Therapy) from the University of Guelph.
On the personal side of things, my husband and I are the parents of three wonderful boys and we are the survivors of nine miscarriages (gulp, sniff!). Through many years of heartbreak we received incredible support from family, friends, and a small army of health care professionals.
Daily life around our house is about lego, goldfish crackers, and chats on the potty (in all manner of family configuration).
Life is good.
