Announcement icon Though video therapy is usually 1/3 of my practice, I am seeing all clients via secured video or phone for the foreseeable future.
I treat issues of mood and anxiety as well as more complex issues involving substance use and abuse and trauma. I also have special expertise and interest in personal goal-setting; cannabis (marijuana) dependence; and creative, gifted, and/or talented youth and adults with mood, underachievement, or multipotentiality issues. I work from a harm-reduction perspective and use a holistic lens to address problems. Using a mix of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and a systems perspective, I assess and address sleep hygiene, daily habits, personal relationships, and coping skills, and incorporate mindfulness and exercise into all treatment planning.
I am a Clinical Psychologist, Researcher, Consultant, Editor, Professor, and Public Speaker. My clinical work aligns well with my research interests, which revolve around addiction science, the effects of personal goal-setting and mindfulness, at-risk youth, and issues related to improving mental health and addiction systems services.
I completed my ScB at Brown, PhD at McGill, and a postdoc in Addiction Psychiatry/Schizophrenia at CAMH/University of Toronto. I hold faculty appointments at: Erasmus University (Assistant Professor, Psychology; Visiting Researcher, Management), University of Toronto (Adjunct Professor, Public Health), CAMH (Collaborator Scientist), and the Centre for Mindfulness Studies.
