Education and Qualifications
I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Music, a Bachelor of Education in Outdoor and Experiential Education, a Masters of Education (in curriculum design and experiential therapies for disordered eating) from Queen's University. In 2003, I completed another 8 courses at the University of Ottawa, in the Masters of Education (Counselling) programme in order to meet the requirements of a Certified Canadian Counsellor and when the association regulated in 2014, I became a registered Psychotherapist in Ontario.
I have a Doctorate in Philosophy (Transformative Learning) and spent five years researching the conscious practice of authenticity -- or what i came to term "a querencetic life" -- what it means to live a life where our values and beliefs are in alignment with our lived life.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and as such, my services are covered by most third party medical insurance plans.
