I offer decades of relevant experience and expertise to clients who are in the midst of a life changing transition and/or existential dilemma. My approach entails creating a safe, open, engaging relational space and then acting as a catalytic companion by using strategic questions to probe and coax the client to the discoveries and adaptations that will make a difference for them. Once the client's stress states, emotional concerns and confused thinking have been calmed and clarified, my aim is to identify and build upon their signature strengths so that they can fully realize their potentials and capacities.

I am a registered psychologist who specializes in narrative therapy, existential/humanistic therapy, emotion-focused therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, Gottman-informed couples therapy, positive psychology techniques, conflict resolution and stress management. I create the conditions whereby the everyday lives of my clients become more pleasurable, engaging and meaningful.

My therapeutic philosophy is to "meet them where they are and take them where they are going". I believe to "affect the quality of the day is the highest of the arts". Together we will bridge differences, solve dilemmas and create discoveries.
