Bio I am a counselling therapist and speech-language pathologist. Sometimes, I use these disciplines separately but mostly they are informed by one another. I grew up in Germany, where I completed my speech therapy training at the university hospital in Aachen. I moved to England in 1994 where I completed a Master of Science Degree in Human Communication. I specialized in stuttering when I worked in England. When I came to Nova Scotia in 2003 with my young family, I started working in the Halifax Regional School Board.
Being always interested in personal change and therapy, I completed a Master Program in Counselling at Acadia University in 2010. I offer counselling for all age groups. My speciality is play therapy for children aged 2 to 16. I always have the child's development in mind even when the approach to play therapy is more about processing and expression of internal states.
I have been a long time mindfulness practitioner. I am a meditation instructor, and use mindfulness, Experiential Focusing Method, and other externalizing practices in my process work with clients.
