Every individual I have the opportunity to meet carriers with them a collection of unique experiences, thoughts, beliefs, values and goals. As humans, we all have periods in our lives when we think, “things are not how they should or ought to be” and this may lead us to a place where we may not be feeling like ourselves. I genuinely believe that you, as a client, are the expert at your own life, but sometimes, even experts can use a little fine tuning- this is one of the functions of therapy! I promise to provide you with the highest quality service that it tailored to your specific needs.

As a therapist, but first and foremost, as a human being, it is my promise to you, that I will walk with you through the difficult and joyous chapters of your life and through therapy, will help you re-establish the goals that you envision for yourself. No two clients are the same and it would be unfair to you if you were treated as such.

I provide psychotherapy services using Electronic (E)-counselling, commonly referred to as, “Skype therapy” or, “E-therapy”. As such, you are able to receive the highest quality of services right from your own home, office or location of your choice, which in today’s busy world, can be a saving grace! Please note: you must be a resident in Ontario.
