     Over the past 25 years, I have trained in and developed ways to tap into people's strengths and creativity to promote healing and wellness. 


My approach is relationship-centered and engages the whole person. 


I use evidenced based practices to guide people in resolving traumas and stress and in taming their inner critic. 


Over the past 35+ years I've worked with people in a wide range of settings: as a play and drama therapist, a talk therapist, EMDR certified practitioner,  writing. drama therapy instructor, Restorative Justice trainer and faciliator, consultant,  and supervisor to a Juveniles Justice Program, case evaluator for Durham County District Courts. Below I focus on my training in Internal Family Systems. My vast experience with a wide range of people in different contexts has enriched my perspective on life. 


My training and experience in Internal Family Systems began during the Pandemic, in 2020 with reading books by Richard Schwartz on IFS. This led to me taking the IFS Circle Program on line. Simultaneosly, I took the IFS Institutes On-Line Circle which is live training, videos and consultations with Richard Schwartz and other IFS trainers that focused on a wide range of topics. By 2021, I began to use the IFS method with clients in my private practice. I also began seeing an IFS therapist during that time, which was essential to deepening my understanding of myself and IFS. From January to April of 2022, I joined the 16 week IFS Canada Stepping Stones live course and then in July 2022 Advanced IFS, both under the leadership of Derek Scott. For over a year, I am a member of two IFS peer learning groups, one which focuses on facilitating IFS with groups.  I also was part of an IFS group for almost a year as a participant/client. And have and continue to take advanced courses in IFS that are too many to list here.  I am very grateful to be part of the IFS community.
