The work of marriage and family therapy is my passion. It’s a labour of love.

The Master of Marriage and Family Therapy degree (MMFT) is one of the most rigorous and respected in the field. In training I was privileged to learn and apply many theoretical frameworks that inform my practice. In order to graduate with our Master’s degree, we therapists in the Marriage and Family Therapy Program earned a minimum 500 hours with real clients during supervised training. I have benefitted from excellent supervision and keep abreast of developments in my field through ongoing professional development. I do not hesitate to consult when reaching the limits of my expertise. This means that clients profit from both my experience and that of a more seasoned professional. Think of it as two helpers for the price of one. Throughout the entirety of my training and vocational experience, I also faced my own issues. This is common to all good therapists in order to becoming better equipped to distinguish our own “stuff” from that of others. Better service is the result.

While academic and clinical training involves learning how to assess and address many aspects of the human condition, life has been my best teacher. There’s nothing like a family of one’s own to provide the best of training grounds–and learning from my own mistakes– and taking into account a bigger picture.

 


Most problems have a relational dimension. Whether it’s a family conflict, a parent-teen dispute, a couple seeking reconnection, or an individual in turmoil, Crescentwood Counselling will provide a safe place to address human issues in a non-judgemental and compassionate manner.
