About

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). For 22 years, I have worked as an Intensive Marriage and Couples Therapist with my husband David Rubinstein, MA, RP. I now maintain a busy Individual counselling practice for women, blending my experience as a Couple Therapist with Energy Psychology protocols. I work with women of all ages to enhance self-esteem, create secure relationships, and cope with traumatic loss. I also specialize in helping women over sixty overcome late-in-life challenges, find new meaning and purpose, live vibrantly, and enjoy aging gracefully.
In private and secure online video-conference sessions, I will help you gain a deeper understanding of how your early childhood experiences unconsciously frame the way you see the world. I will work with you to relieve stress, overcome past hurts, and let go of limiting beliefs that may keep you from living your life to the fullest.
If you are feeling anxious or fearful, I offer a gentle way to begin the healing process. If you are feeling lost or depressed from COVID, now is the time to begin living vibrantly and with purpose. Let's discover what might be holding you back from creating a healthier body, more emotional peace, and a deeper spiritual connection throughout your lifespan.
