I work with clients from a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences and do not use a one-size-fits-all approach.
The ability to have agency over our own lives is a common need we all share. We want to be at the helm, steering our own ship and making decisions for ourselves. Yet, life can throw us curve balls, shaking our confidence and leaving us questioning where to turn. If you want to make lasting change but don’t know where to start, I can help. I am a Registered Social Worker (MSW, RSW) and Psychotherapist practicing in Toronto. I have spent the last 10 years of my 35-year career helping adults and couples achieve their goals; walk through life more intentionally; and cultivate the quality relationships they desire.

I see clients who struggle with existential crises, anxiety/depression, career and relationship struggles, parenting concerns, lack of motivation or confidence, or people who simply seek greater clarity, depth or direction in life.
As a philosophical therapist, I offer a supportive environment in which to explore your thoughts and emotions, as well as stimulating dialogue in which you will strengthen your ability to face challenges by using creative and deeply reflective thinking. The idea is to think big and come at problems from a fresh and sometimes surprising perspective. I also help problem-solve at the level of habits, when it's time to put our philosophical reflections into practice and make desired changes at the level of daily living. The goal is to discover a greater sense of possibility and to use that to live with greater clarity and authenticity.

I have many years of experience working with clients facing issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions and relationship challenges.
Deciding to seek support is not always easy. Typically it's made when a conflict gets to the point where it can no longer be managed alone. Once the decision has been made, there can be fear or unease around talking about vulnerable emotions or life situations. I recognize the courage that it takes to reach out for help, and endeavour to work from a framework of empowerment so clients can uncover their inherent strengths and abilities. Solutions to our troubles often lie within, however the journey to uncovering these is one that many people struggle to walk alone.

Working within each client's unique timeframe, needs, and goals, I can help to clarify and create space to explore experiences of oneself and ones' life.
I work with adults and couples to help them move towards a state of continued growth, compassion, and self-awareness in a way that is collaborative, strengths-based, and empowering. I believe in creating a client-therapist relationship that fosters authenticity, support, and space for both acceptance, and for change. This can begin in our very first session. Together, we can begin to tease apart the adaptive approaches to dealing with and moving through life you've grown accustomed to, and begin to decipher which of these patterns are serving you, and which you may be interested in moving beyond.

Life transitions can leave us feeling lost and overwhelmed. Becoming a new parent, navigating new relationships and family dynamics, receiving a life changing diagnosis, attending a new school, entering a new life stage, career change, relocation, or experiencing loss can bring up many challenging emotions such as loneliness, fear, grief, anxiety, and depression. It can be hard to appreciate life’s finer moments when we are overwhelmed by our emotions, thoughts, and others' perceptions and expectations of us. These feelings can affect the way we live, learn, parent, maintain relationships, and function in our every day lives.

Does the weight of your worry continue to grow and leave you feeling exhausted? Are you trying hard to fit in, but usually end up feeling excluded, unhappy, and anxious? Or perhaps you're noticing that your child is finding it hard to connect with others? The stress of relationships and identity can be a lot to manage; having to tell someone about it can be downright overwhelming. If you or a loved one feels like there's nowhere else to turn, accessing the support of a trusted therapist can help you focus on your strengths and discover who you really are.
