B.Sc., M.Ed., RP
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), a member of the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists (OSRP) and a Clinical Supervisor. My 25+ years of experience has included working with depression, anxiety, grief, addictions, divorce and separation, relationship, trauma, and work issues. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), relationship counselling, health coaching, trauma therapies and more. Alongside of my private practice, I have been fortunate to provide senior leadership to several mental health programs within large and small organizations.
I believe most human struggles can be connected to the quest for meaningful intimacy and love. Understanding family dynamics, acquiring healthy friendships, seeking and maintaining romantic love often accompany other emotional concerns. My life's passion and my greatest success has been to support people through the life events that have challenged their self-worth, feeling deserving and their ability to imagine and create the life they want.
My style is direct, compassionate, respectful and where appropriate, humorous. I believe that providing effective therapy is both an art and science and as such, I use my experience and training to develop the approach and my strong intuitive sense to guide me to a deep understanding of your experiences, your strengths and your unique vulnerabilities.
