A supervisor learns how to help people learn, how to help them stay healthy in the work, and how to connect to a larger network of knowledge and support.

I’m not just an experienced therapist – I have a deep interest in the pedagogy of psychotherapy and best practices in clinical supervision. I’ve been teaching mindfulness for over 20 years and more than 10 years’ experience as a clinical supervisor in frontline nonprofit and private practice environments. I’ve taught as university faculty, delivered trainings and seminars to major service organizations, supervised student placements from many Ontario universities, and have mentored dozens of RPs and social workers. I fully meet the latest CRPO requirements for clinical supervisors.

I have significant experience with issues of intimate partner violence, childhood sexual abuse and other forms of trauma. I specialize in experiential therapies including mindfulness-acceptance therapies, somatic trauma therapies, existential, gestalt, feminist and contemplative psychotherapies. I have a M.A. in Transpersonal Counselling Psychology and I’m also the graduate of a Buddhist seminary – informing the depth of my mindfulness-based and compassion-focused work with clients. My practice focuses on adult individuals and is client-centered, queer-positive and anti-oppressive. As an experienced supervisor I also support clinicians with an eclectic approach including relational, narrative, systemic, psychodynamic, solution-focused and CBT approaches.
