About

As a Registered Psychotherapist working with adults of all ages, I specialize in the treatment of trauma. Therapy provides an opportunity to discuss how symptoms such as: depression, anxiety, anger, relationship difficulties, addictions, and emotional volatility, can feel overwhelming and unmanageable. Over and over I've witnessed people using therapy to feel safer in the world, more hopeful, and better able to reach their full potential in life, work, and in relationship with themselves and others. I am an experienced, empathic therapist and I collaborate to tailor therapy to meet each client's individual needs.
I have been helping to transform trauma for the past 21+ years in my private psychotherapy practice, and for 10 years an a clinician and supervisor in the Trauma Therapy Program at Women's College Hospital. Therapy helps people realize goals, unpack nagging problems, or simply better understand being themselves.
My practice is currently online, previously in Toronto , and in Cobourg (1+ hour East of the city). I use relational, client-centered, interpersonal therapy which is founded on creating a safe, collaborative relationship between client and therapist. I also use IFS, psycho-dynamic, trauma-focused Psychotherapy, and mindfulness-based therapeutic approaches.
