Keep on Writing…

The past few years I have been focusing on a writing project. What started as an idea for a course has turned into a much bigger endeavour. I have been working on it for many years and continue to do so. It is a demanding yet fascinating project that could easily be pushed to the side when other more pressing life responsibilities arise. That being said, the project has a life of its own and is often calling me louder than any other more visible and tangible responsibilities in my life. So I give it attention and I write bit by bit – one day at a time, one sentence at a time, it is coming along…

What long term project are you slowly working on? a blanket, a business, a degree, a hobby or maybe you are working on changing a habit…

Calgary Floods Counselling

On June 21, 2013 our city was hit by the biggest flood in its history. Some have been affected more than others but the impact of the flood will be imprinted on all of us for many years to come.

I stepped out of my home the next day and was deeply touched by the impact of the flood. I was driving in one of the worst traffic jam I have ever been in on Deerfoot Trail but yet it felt really calm. People were not trying to pass, drive faster, constantly change lanes or getting frustrated behind the wheel. Instead people were looking around and trying to absorb the impact. Drivers were yielding to others and moving along in an orderly manner. It was peace amongst the chaos. For a moment, everyone had put their personal priorities and destinations to the side and surrendered to the greater need of the community. It is great to see how Calgarians have risen to the occasion to support each other.

We truly live in a wonderful city.


I am a psychologist practicing in Calgary, Alberta. I feel fortunate to do what I do. I decided to start this blog as a creative and light hearted way to briefly share information about counselling and the work I do. I will also share my thoughts about the latest research and news that have caught my attention; books, movies and quotes that have touched me; or simply about everyday life.

I hope this blog is informative and insightful. Enjoy!
