Professional registration and academic degrees:

Besides two certificate programs and many professional conferences in Canada and the U.S., I trained for two weeks in Australia with Michael White, co-founder of Narrative Therapy. In B.C. I am registered with my professional college to work in private practice with individuals, couples, families, and groups (Reg.#3263). The designation of R.C.S.W. is a step beyond R.S.W. that includes a North American clinical board exam.

M.S.W., East Carolina University, with graduate courses and clinical supervision in the counselling of individuals, couples, families, and groups

Ph.D., University of Chicago, English Language and Literature

B.A., Duke University, Durham, NC

(Please note: it is the ethical policy of my professional college not to allow the posting of positive comments by former clients, so I have removed a list of such comments.)

Part of my practice is contracted to several, Canada-wide, Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs). Locally, I receive referrals from Family Services of Greater Vancouver EAP.
