Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have over 35 years of experience working with clients with various strengths and challenges, and I am very interested in meeting with the family members and loved ones of a person with mental health symptoms as well. I find that family members can benefit from 3 to 5 sessions of psychoeducation to learn more about the the symptoms their family member is experiencing, to better understand how these symptoms have impacted their family relationships and to have an opportunity to focus on their own needs and concerns. I am also very interested in supporting the growth and emergence of improved self-esteem, particularly in the arena of our relationships with our bodies. Making the decision to get off the merry-go-round of weight-loss dieting can be a difficult and very rewarding decision. I bring my own experience, as well as my extensive research in the understanding of Health at Every Size, to this work.
