If you are a dedicated mental health professional seeking guidance and supervision to enhance your skills in using the model of Compassion Focused Therapy, I would be happy to speak with you regarding consultation/supervision. I am a highly experienced Registered Nurse and Registered Psychotherapist, with over 30 years of experience in the mental health field and I would be happy to support you on your journey. I have extensive background in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I specialize in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) in individual psychotherapy. I have engaged in extensive training and consultation with Paul Gilbert and senior trainers in the CFT community. I have training and experience in using CFT for Anxiety, OCD, PTSD and Trauma, Depression, Psychosis, and other difficulties. I also have training in other in evidence-based therapies including CBT, DBT, IPT, and Mindfulness-based therapies. I integrate interventions from these therapies into CFT to each address each client's unique needs, offering them a comprehensive and effective therapeutic experience. I have a strong commitment to professional development and sharing knowledge. My passion for Compassion Focused Therapy led me to become a founding member of the Canadian Network - Compassion Focused Therapy - Réseau Canadien. I facilitate online CFT peer consultation groups and in-person meetings for therapists in Toronto, fostering a collaborative community of learning and growth. I also practice and teach in the Korean Ganhwasoen (Koan Zen) tradition, having received Dharma Transmission from my teacher in 2013.
