ABOUT

Norma is a dynamic psychotherapist across diverse community and health settings since 1989.  She holds a Master’s degree of clinical social work, is a registered clinical social worker, and has been in private practice since 2007. She has worked extensively with over 10,000 adults, children and youth, families at every stage of development, couples and the elderly.

 

She believes healing and growth are a multilayered and expansive process to be embraced for optimal living.  Thriving to our own unique capacity is the highest guiding principle.

 

Early childhood trauma, the impact of sexual abuse on children and adults, PTSD, depression and anxiety, grief and transformation, have all been at the core of her work.  Cross-culturally sensitive and an ally for the LGBTQ community, Norma also contracts with Vancouver Island First Nations bands.  In various healthcare settings including the BC Cancer Agency, She works with multiple issues from survivorship to palliative care, the impacts of diagnosis and treatment on patients and family systems and the stress of a critical diagnosis. There she further developed her lifelong interest in holistic health, stress reduction, mindfulness meditation and the utility of creative expression in healing and finding one’s true voice in the maelstrom.

 

Personalized and creative care is what you can expect from a confidential, compassionate and respectful practice.  Norma also leads with a highly intuitive and insightful approach.  A holistic health perspective informs and guides the therapy while holding your greatest good in mind.  As an artist and writer herself, Norma bridges blocks and blind spots artfully and is exceptional at weaving pieces together that we sometimes have trouble connecting ourselves.

 

Ongoing professional development is a high priority to her to develop, hone and research her skills, knowledge and recent gains in the field.  She is well versed in extensive trauma training and neurobiology and has a special interest in healing complicated grief and loss, trauma, health crisis and chronic pain, marital/relationship crisis and growth, palliative care and mid-life issues.

 

She passionately believes in exploring creative re-invention, growth, and vitality throughout the lifespan, creating more dynamism and joy in our daily lives.

 

She has also completed her white belt Nia dance teacher training which further integrates body somatic awareness and feeds her own health, increasing wellness and creative growth.

 

Therapy is available for Individuals, Couples and Families. In addition, Clinical supervision and consultation are provided through this office.
