I am a registered clinical counselor with over 15 years of counseling experience, a certified AEDP therapist and an AEDP Supervisor-In-Training. My psychotherapy practice integrates implicit body-mind knowing and centralizes the processing of affective experience in the context of our innate human capacity for self-awareness and growth.
My foray into the AEDP world started with my doctoral research which aimed to better understand the attachment processes within psychotherapy. In the summer of 2011, I enrolled in the AEDP immersion at a retreat centre in Santa Barbara. Like many, I immediately found and continue to "find home” in AEDP as my therapeutic orientation. Within AEDP, I have felt a deepening, a honing of skills, a grounding into self and other, a releasing into process, into relationship, a synchrony, all of which continue to feel infinitely meaningful and creative. I can say with certainty, I am in every way a better person, partner, parent, and therapist because of AEDP.
Since undertaking the immersion, I have completed Essential Skills 1, Core Training, and have participated in and assisted with a number of AEDP courses and workshops. Additionally, I have presented my AEDP clinical work and research at several psychotherapy conferences. I am thrilled to be a part of the AEDP Cascadia steering committee in Vancouver, BC and look forward to connecting with and supporting the growth of our thriving community of AEDP therapists.
