I’m an experience (20 years) award winning Psychotherapist in Canada having made numerous media appearances. I’m also covered by insurance. I offer free 20 min. phone consultations. Clients can make appointments by using my self-booking system on my website’s appointment page. I’m adept at assessing my client’s issues as I think and speak out loud at the same time. I offer a high degree of transparency which builds trust quickly and allows work to be done at a good pace. I work collaboratively raising awareness for my clients, highlighting underlying themes that arise during the assessment. From this we develop a treatment plan.
I use a strength-based approach and help clients use their skills to overcome obstacles while not merely addressing the presenting issues alone. I’ve had years of experience working in psychiatric facilities, addiction agencies and hospitals, counselling individuals, couples and families. I’m often invited by professors to contribute to their lectures.
I won an award for “Best Toronto Therapist” for highest client satisfaction ratings in Toronto (2011). In addition, I have advanced training in treating trauma and success coaching using EMDR and CBT. I’m a Clinical Supervisor training other therapists.
