About

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, and I have been in private practice for over 25 years. In that time I have help hundreds of people deal with the challenges and roadblocks that get in the way of living rich and meaningful lives. Here is what I believe: I believe that within each of us lies a deep soul wisdom, a guiding light that holds our purpose for being here – in this body, this personality, this family, this environment. My purpose and my passion is to help others get in touch with that guiding wisdom – by dismantling the roadblocks and the confusion that stand in the way. This is my work, and I find it deeply meaningful and satisfying to be of help where and when I can.

As a psychotherapist and an educator, I have long been deeply involved in the study and practice of Jungian thought and dream analysis combined with a strong orientation to the body-mind connection. I have a M.A. in Psychology from the University of Norwich (1990) in which I focused on Jungian and archetypal psychology. My other credentials include: Focusing Trainer, (2000, Eugene Gendlin Institute) and Certified Yoga Teacher, (Yoga Centre Toronto 1985). I have been a Clinical Member of the Ontario Society of Psychotherapists since 1996. I am also an associate consultant at http://www.management-transitions.com. I am currently serving on the Board of the Ontario Society of Psychotherapists (OSP) as the Chair of PR, and I am the Editor of the OSP newsletter, PrOSPect.  Other interests include gnosticism, integral psychology, theosophy, and meditation.

I have a practice in downtown Toronto, near Avenue Rd. and Davenport (close to Rosedale subway) as well as in Shanty Bay, just outside of Barrie.

  1. I shall be revisiting your blog as it is fascinating! I completely understand the motivation behind it – I had similar thoughts as my sons were becoming young adults – we never seemed to exchange the realities that seemed important to me, so I started my blog as a method of documentation. I periodically print it via Blurb so I keep a hard copy. They do not want to read my ramblings yet- perhaps they never will. I only know that I never shared my life with my parents, and my father died without me knowing about him. I didn’t want my children to experience that pain. They can see me if they want to!
    Beside the motivation, the content of your blog is deeply interesting too. Taht is why I shall be revisiting and digesting!!

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words…. I suspect there are many other parents out there who feel as we do. I shall be very interested in reading your blog as well.

    With very best wishes,

    Margaret
