"At first glance, it may appear too hard. Look again. Always look again." Mary Anne Rodmacher
A designation of BC Association of Clinical Counsellors
I take an active stance with you in the resolution of your difficulties. I believe that whatever difficulty you have, there's a very good reason that it developed. I also believe that when old emotional patterns or beliefs have outlived their usefulness, they begin to cause the problems we seek therapy for. Together, we can explore a different way.
I earned a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Winnipeg and trained in psychotherapy and Family Systems at the Aurora Family Therapy Institute in Winnipeg, MB. I have been in private practice for 18 years, as well as having held various service contracts for Employee and Family Assistance Programs, Child and Family Services, and Compensation for Victims of Crime.
I am a member in good standing with the Canadian Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and the Canadian Registry of Marriage and Family Therapists BC Division. I am also a member in good standing with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors.
