    Over the last 19 years in my practice as a psychologist, I have developed a deep respect for mind-body-spirit awareness because it is my experience that when we're in this "zone" deep, integral change emerges. To this end, I use a brain-wise approach in my therapy to help you learn how to modulate the “charge” in the nervous system that accompanies tension, pain, and anxiety ("buzzing too high") and/or, depression (through boosting collapsed or flat energy up and bringing in helpful resources). I've discovered that a mind-body approach helps the nervous system find its optimal range and as it does so, you learn how to roll with the “punches” of life into flow with curiosity and passion. Struggles with anxiety, depression, and relationship problems shift and resolve and a calmer and happier you emerges. To help you access a best self, I use a variety of therapy approaches including somatic experiencing, self-regulation therapy, bodynamics, cognitive behavioral, and psychodynamic.

    I'm a psychologist who helps people open their hearts and turn despair into deliciousness. I also happen to make insanely delicious food that even those with special diets and food allergies can enjoy. This latter calling has manifested in the genesis of a bestselling book where I share these creations (YUM: plant-based recipes for a gluten-free diet, Sept 2015) that has just received the prestigious honour of winning the 2015 Gourmand World Cookbook Award as the Best Diet Book for the public in Canada-English. Having a breadth of interests and passionate about reducing unnecessary suffering and helping preserve our planet through a variety of modalities, it brings me great joy to embrace fully the privilege of lifelong learning, In so doing, my career path has not only led me to become a Registered Psychologist and an integrative mind-body wellness professional who has been educating and empowering clients, students and the public since 1987, but to also become an author and gourmet raw food chef and nutrition educator as well. I also contribute to public awareness through my blog www.yumfoodforliving.com, social media, magazine articles and other media outlets.

    1544 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, BC, Canada

    In my West Vancouver-based psychotherapy private practice since 1993, as a Registered Psychologist, I have worked with a broad range of individuals who have been concerned about experiences of personal distress that can vary in frequency, form, intensity and impact on their lives. Personal satisfaction and growth have been restricted. Social and interpersonal relationships have been dissatisfying. Effectiveness at work has been reduced. Psychotherapy is for anyone who feels they may need professional support to explore, overcome, face or cope differently with various life situations that affect them, their lives and people around them. Depending on client needs, my practice is directed toward short-term and long-term treatment as well as to an urgent response to immediate crisis.

    I believe relationships are key to mental health. My preferred therapy approach is called relationally focused integrative psychotherapy. It is within safe, empathic and respectful relationships that healing occurs, and the therapeutic relationships I create with clients include these qualities. The 'integrative' term has several meanings. There is the personal integration of parts of ourselves of which we may be ashamed or even unaware. This therapy helps to make us whole again, removes blocks to healthy development and reduces defensiveness and painful emotions. Another meaning of 'integrative' refers to the therapist's ability to bring together various therapy approaches so the therapist has more resources and a deeper understanding of a client's thinking, feeling and behaviours. I use cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic psychotherapy as well as other approaches and therapy techniques. These may include attuned inquiry, self questionnaires, guided relaxation, and practising new behaviours between sessions.

    Psychologist

    Chilliwack, BC, Canada

    I didn’t come to be a registered psychologist in the typical way. My PhD from Simon Fraser University is in Developmental Psychology where I specialized in the study of infants, toddlers and pre-school children’s development. I was particularly interested the relationship between children’s temperament, behaviour problems, and parenting stress. My early training and studies gave me the desire to work therapeutically with children and their families, and so after graduating with my PhD, I returned to SFU to obtain a second Master’s degree, this time in Counselling Psychology. My internship was completed with children, youth and their parents, and I continue to counsel children and families, as well as individual adults, couples and families in my private practise in Chilliwack. As a service provider for The Employee and Family Assistance Program since 2004 I have worked extensively with health care professionals in the Fraser Valley.
