Are you telling yourself "something needs to change" in your life? Maybe you’re feeling depressed or excessive worry is controlling your life. I hold 2 licenses to practice in Ontario. I am a Registered Psychological Associate with the College of Psychologists of Ontario and a Registered Psychotherapist with the CRPO. I offer clinical and diagnostic assessments (e.g., ADHD, ASD in Adults) as well as treatment of everyday or complex life issues. My main therapeutic approach is CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness-based stress reduction. I’m also an advanced Trauma and Attachment-focused therapist.
I am currently seeing clients in-person and online. My practice serves Adults and Teens. Stressful events can stir up feelings and memories of previous traumas and affect our abilities to cope. Are you overwhelmed or feeling lonely and sad? Or have intense suicidal feelings and thoughts? Don’t go through this alone and call. I am here to help!
I have extensive experience treating Depression, Generalized Anxiety and Panic Disorders, OCD, Social Anxiety, Borderline Personality Disorder, ADHD, PTSD, Grief, Attachment and Relationship Issues. It's hard to choose a therapist that will understand what you are going through. I also practice in French and Turkish.
