In my work with professionals, I find that extra attention and sensitivity to issues of shame and trust and privacy is essential otherwise the therapeutic work is stymied.

I provide psychological services to individuals, couples, families and groups for a variety of issues including:

  • Depression & anxiety
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Relationship counselling (e.g., communication and intimacy problems)
  • Personal and work-related stress
  • Anger management
  • Chronic unhappiness (e.g., feelings of alienation and despair)
  • Grief counselling (e.g., grief and loss due to death, divorce)
  • Past and recent trauma / abuse (e.g. post-traumatic stress)
  • Family of origin issues
  • Parenting issues
  • Adjustment to physical health concerns
  • Terminal illness (e.g., HIV, cancer)
  • Self-injury (e.g., cutting)
  • Substance abuse

Part of my practice specializes in providing confidential psychological services to health care workers and other professionals. “Care for the care-giver” is often overlooked until serious emotional and health concerns arise.

Some of the issues that arise with health care workers, psychotherapists and other professionals are:

  • Burnout
  • Secondary and vicarious traumatization
  • Clinical consultation / supervision

Rather than having a fixed agenda, each session focuses on the issues most important to group members on the day. Some examples of issues that come up are relationships, shame and self- expression, grief and loss, isolation... Read more »
