In addition to an MA in Counselling and Spirituality, and GradDip in Couple Counselling, I have training in PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy), Narrative Therapy, and Expressive Arts.
I worked previously as a Birth Doula, providing calm reassurance for moms and their partners leading up to and during the birth of their children. Along with my husband, Steve Fick, I taught Birthing From Within Childbirth Classes to help expectant parents conquer their fears, discover their strengths and connect together as partners.
My interest is growth over the lifespan:
Young Adulthood – discovering who you are and who you want to be
Premarital Counselling – preparing for your life together
Couple Counselling – growing secure functioning
Separation & Divorce – finding balance as life changes
LGBTQ Relationships – building a healthy partnership
Mixed-Orientation Relationships – same-sex attraction in your straight relationship
Healthy Sexuality – knowing your sexual self
Pregnancy and Birth – preparing for your transformation from individual to parent
Postpartum Adjustment – adapting to the demands of your new family life
Parenting – becoming confident in your role as Mom or Dad
Life Transitions – regaining your sense of balance during times of change
Unexpected Illness – coping with a new reality
Grief and Loss – working through a major loss and finding yourself again
Older Adulthood – growing more peaceful with who you are
I also provide Two-on-Two Couple Counselling with Steve Fick, my husband of 39 years.
