About

You are likely on this website because there is some aspect of your life that you are hoping to change. Perhaps you have experienced a history of unstable mood, depression, anxiety, or self-defeating behaviours. You might have tried to cope in ways that do not seem to work, or learn skills but they don't seem to stick, and somehow always end back in a place you don't want to be. If you feel that you have suffered for long enough and you have a strong desire to change the patterns that get you stuck, and process and heal from your core emotional struggle we can work together to make the changes necessary to help you move forward.
I provide an evidence-based and advanced psychotherapy approach, Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). This emotion-focused, process-oriented, psychodynamic approach works towards lasting change efficiently by collaboratively combating unhelpful patterns and addressing core underlying emotions.
I am a registered clinical and counselling psychologist with a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. I have worked with a wide range of mental health issues in inpatient and outpatient hospital programs, private practices, a university setting, and community agency. Contact Dynamic Psychotherapy & Psychology Centre if you are interested in working together.
