About

If you are looking for a therapist who is warm, open-minded and engaging you’ve come to the right place. With clarity and compassion, I will support you to set and reach goals, break habitual patterns and find better ways of coping with the pain and stress of life. Most humans experience emotional suffering and have unwelcome thoughts. We get stuck in the past, worry about the future and have relationship challenges. We doubt ourselves and engage in painful self-criticism. When it's safely possible, I will return to in person practice in the Parkdale Highpark neighbourhood.
I work with clients on a variety of issues big and small. Some have struggled for years with symptoms of depression, anxiety and low-self esteem while others have experienced a recent change or event. I draw from the science and theories of Mindfulness, Compassion-Focused Psychotherapy (ACT, DBT, CFT), and Emotion Focused/Sensorimotor Therapy.
My training and experience qualify me to practise psychotherapy, but who I am as a human, my life experience, and my ability to connect with people is what enables me to build successful therapeutic relationships with clients. To be sure we're a good fit, I offer a free phone consultation.
