The Guest House
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
— Jellaludin Rumi,
My counseling career began by implementing addiction recovery programs for youth with Alberta Health Services. I was then given the opportunity to practice at a sex addiction and trauma recovery outpatient clinic for many years. It was there that my passion to understand and treat betrayal trauma took root.
That experience prompted me to complete a Master of Social Work degree and upon completion of that degree I was awarded a gold medal in research in the area of partners of sexually addicted individuals .
Over the years, I have practiced in various mental health settings including; ongoing private practice, outpatient treatment centers, community agencies, walk-in counseling services and post secondary educational communities.
It is with passion and commitment that I welcome the opportunity to continue to assist people with their recovery work with mental health issues and trauma.
