I came to psychology later than most, not beginning my university career until I was 30 years old. Prior to that, and while I was figuring out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, in what I refer to as my previous life, I was a secretary in Canada's Foreign Service where I served abroad at our Embassy in Iran as well as working in Ottawa and at our Mission at the United Nations in New York. Travel continues to be a big part of my life as well as the outdoors.Perhaps the most pivitol point that started this transition and journey was realizing that I was waking up morning after morning not wanting to go to work, knowing I was unhappy and unfulfilled. I didn't like feeling that way and I had to listen because it was very loud - I had to listen to myself and trust it and then do something about it. That is when I decided to leave the security of that government job and try university. And you know what? I loved it! I couldn't get enough. That is how my journey began and it continues to unfold.Psychology seemed a natural field for me after my first year of returning to school. I then went on to finish three degrees, completing a Ph.D. in 1991 with full licensure as a Registered Psychologist in 1992.Prior to venturing into full time private practice I worked with a national firm of Employee and Family Assistance providers in Vancouver after training and work experiences at Kingston General Hospital Child and Family Outpatient Clinic, Student Services at Queen's University and the Regional Treatment Centre at Kingston Penitentiary.Part of my ongoing journey now is helping my clients find their own inner voices when they feel lost, and guiding them through the process of listening, really listening, so that that they can find their own personal solutions.
