Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, RSW
As a Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist, I provide goal-oriented therapy (CBT, ERP) on many issues, specializing in the areas of OCD & Anxiety. Other issues explored in therapy include: Building self esteem, strengthening pathways to better relationships, adjusting to life cycle transitions (including the stage of life when loved ones have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s) & managing grief. In therapy, we work together in a supportive environment and set concrete & achievable goals. Together, we work to reduce stress & anxiety, manage worried thoughts, strengthen coping skills, reduce negative self talk & build resilience.
The first line and evidence based treatment modality for OCD is CBT with a strong emphasis on Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), which is my preferred approach. I’m a professional member of the International OCD Foundation. I am committed to advanced training in both OCD & Anxiety, including participation in Behavior Therapy Training Institutes (BTTI’s).
Oftentimes, recognizing that your life is not functioning well and wanting to do something about that is one of the hardest steps for many people to take. In therapy, we work together to create change. My office is located in Toronto in the Yonge & Sheppard area, with easy access to subway and parking. Please feel free to call me with any initial questions.
