Profession(s)Mental Health Professional, Psychologist, Mediator
In addition to Coaching and Child Specialist work with Collaborative Family Law teams, I practice Child Inclusive Parenting Plan Consultation and Coaching, designed for separated parents who are developing parenting plans while striving toward collaborative post-divorce parenting practices. This work is based on the Child Inclusive Mediation process researched by the Australian Psychologist, Dr. Jennifer McIntosh, and developed as a means of 'listening to the child's voice' in divorce proceedings. I am also particularly interested in how we can shift our self-identities, transform our emotions, and claim our power and confidence through the difficult experiences of conflict and life transition. Although I have now closed my therapy practice in favour of coaching, I provided therapy and counselling to a diverse clientele over the past 30 years.
