Experienced Therapist/Counsellor, group facilitator, meditation teacher, author
I offer individual therapy with specialities in addictions, stress management, and diabetic clients. I have offered the “Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program” (MBSR) in group settings. I have 20 years of meditation experience. In 1999, I completed a professional program with Jon Kabat-Zinn, originator of the MBSR program. Also, I completed the intensive program “Meditating with the Body” with Dr. Reginald Ray of Dharma Ocean. My past experience in medical, social service and educational environments brings a rich foundation to draw from while helping people improve the quality of their life. To facilate mind-body, I developed a practical guidebook in a workbook format with an accompanying CD that guides you through Mindfulness/Awareness practices. Currently, I am creating a 4 week course titled “Pathways to Live a Compassionate Life” based on Karen Armstrong’s book “Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life”.
