Counselling and Therapy for Individuals


Sabbatical Notice

Please note that I am sabbatical until April 30, 2023.  During this time I am not offering regular sessions nor taking new clients.  

Sabbatical - “A period of time during which someone does not work at his or her regular job and is able to rest, travel, do research, etc”.   

The Britannica Dictionary.

 “A sabbatical has also come to mean a lengthy, intentional break from a career. The popularity of sabbaticals for non-academics has increased in the 21st century.”  



As a spiritually integrated psychotherapist, I look to serve clients from a place of centeredness and wholeness of mind, body and spirit.

To this end, I am currently taking a sabbatical to refresh and enrich my personal, professional and spiritual practice. 

During my time away from regular client sessions, I am attending meditation retreats and spiritual teachings and going on pilgrimages to sacred sites.  I am also engaging in continuing professional development education and volunteer service to the psychotherapy profession.

A key direction of the “strategic plan” that I developed for my sabbatical is the intention to integrate my personal, educational and spiritual growth and experiences into a reimagined and renewed spiritual psychotherapy practice.

Meditation practice, teachings and pilgrimage to Buddhist sites, for instance, will further enhance my masters degree training that incorporated Buddhist approaches to mental health and spiritual care and psychotherapy.

Continuing professional education will allow me to add a new modality to complement to my current offerings.  It will also allow me to deepen and reinvigorate the integration of sacred and mindful sound.

As I attend to these intentions on sabbatical, I very much look forward to returning reenergized to a recreated practice with the aspiration to serve you.
