Psychotherapy is a relationship in which focused, caring attention is brought to bear on your life, there to discover your unique life, who you are when you no longer need to pretend. It is a rebuilding of trust, where trust has been broken, and an accompanying realization that this unique you is eminently loveable. Choosing to make a psychotherapeutic journey is an investment in your self?an act of self-love. Poet, Mary Oliver, asks the question: ?What will you do with your one precious life?? If you have the feeling that the life you are living is not your own, the therapeutic relationship is a safe space reclaim a more authentic version of yourself and celebrate just how precious your life is.

Intimate relationships are potentially where most of our healing work takes place. This is because we are selves-in-relationship. We came into the world as relational beings, and in this crucible we discover both our deepest joy and our most profound heart break. We each have patterns of intimacy that we learned very early. Some of these patterns make space for the love we want, and some continually frustrate us. The mystery of intimacy is that it reveals our vulnerabilities: the hope of finding love and the power of patterns of attachment that sabotage the very love we are seeking. The first step is becoming aware of our “sore spots”, our sensitivities that we put in place to protect our hearts, but which are now getting in the way. The next stage is practicing learning to distinguish between when they are still useful and when they need to be put aside. The potential of a conscious relationship is that you can each act as mirrors to the other revealing the very places that are wanting to be healed.
The sessions are 50 minutes. For couples the first session is 100 minutes, either in my Vancouver office, or by Skype sessions. After the initial session, the cost is $165.00 per session, plus GST. I require 48 hours notice for cancellations. If I not receive notice within this time period, but am able to fill the appointment you won’t be charged.
