Ann is a Registered Psychotherapist, holds a diploma from the Institute for Psychotherapy and Emotional Bodywork (IPEB, 1999) and is a member of the Canadian Association of Psychodynamic Therapists (CAPT). She has been in private practice since 2000. As a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, Ann works with a wide range of approaches such as Emotional Bodywork, Dream Interpretation, Relaxation and Visualization, Myth, Narrative, Creative Art Expression, Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), Focusing and the Tapping technique which enable a client to enter their individual process and gain a deeper sense of themselves. Ann’s approach is client-centered, respectful, confidential and empathic - this is the client’s journey, to which she offers trained insight and guided exploration. In their exploration, the client gains new understanding of their life patterns allowing them to grow and forge new life pathways. The therapeutic goal is for a client to enter into a life-long dialogue and awareness with themselves so that, after formal therapy has ended, they may continue to make healthy life choices.

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” (Michelangelo)

My role, as therapist, is to assist a client to understand their unconscious dynamic, to work towards an emotional awareness which allows them to change their life patterns and release that which binds them from living a more fulfilling life.

Ann offers:
Workshops on Stress Management, Relaxation & Visualization
Corporate Stress Management and Wellness Workshops
Clinical Supervision to Registered Psychotherapists

CLIENT-CENTERED THERAPY: One of my guiding principals of therapy is respect for the client's needs and wishes. There are many ways to any goal and the client is always at the centre of any decision making process when a course of therapy is suggested.

BODYWORK: My approach to psychotherapy begins with the idea that mind and body are part of one being. If pain is felt in one, it is felt in the other. Bodywork and talk therapy are part of a practice to impart usable skills to each client. Skills that can be applied to all facets of living. The end goal of therapy is always to guide each client to a healthier life of their choosing. The tools used in each session depend on the issues being worked as well as the client's preferences.
