About Me

To date, I’ve spent a decade in each of three callings.

After business and law school, I worked as a lawyer in private practice, becoming a partner in the tax group in a major Calgary firm. When the door to the corporate world opened to me, I accepted an executive role at one of Canada’s large banks, working ten years in both line and headquarters roles. I then started my own business: a five-store bakery in Toronto with 40 employees and a loyal customer base of corporations and individuals. With the closure of that business in the 2020-21 pandemic, I began working on a new business, slated to open in late 2021.

Behind the scenes, I have always been fascinated by how our minds work, and from 2013 to 2017, I trained as a therapist at the Toronto Institute of Relational Psychotherapy, becoming a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario in 2018.

In Blacklock Consulting, I offer individual clients either relational psychotherapy or career coaching.

When to engage in psychotherapy and when to pursue career coaching? For some people, therapy is the clear answer: they know they want to do an exploration of their whole life and how they are feeling, how they are engaging with everyone: family, friends and colleagues.

For others, they have a specific career issue they want to discuss in maybe one or a handful of sessions; they have a current challenge in only work and the rest of life feels good and vibrant.

For some people, however, the difference between therapy and coaching – and which is right for them – is not clear and they value an opportunity to discuss whether therapy or coaching is what they need.

Wherever you are at in your search, I am happy to offer you a free consultation to talk about what’s going on for you, and if or how I can best help. To set that up, please send me a message using the box below.
