About

While I work with issues of depression, anxiety and dysfunctional couple dynamics, I specialize in issues with sexuality, sexual dysfunction, infidelity, infertility and sexual abuse. I offer respectful, judgment free compassionate care to clients experiencing troubling emotions and behaviours and work to release and heal feelings of shame/guilt/fear related to sexual dysfunction, intimacy and identity. I work extensively with both individuals and couples in the areas of high/low sexual desire, arousal/orgasm disorders and Erectile Dysfunction, among others. My practice is LGBTQ+Kink and Consenual non-monogamy supportive.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I have trained extensively in the area of Sexuality and Sex Therapy. I offer an integrative approach to psychotherapy that uses psychodynamic, experiential, emotionally focused and cognitive behaviour therapy.
I work to help clients explore how past patterns and dynamics are affecting current life and to process, heal and transition beyond difficult and painful experiences. I provide gentle and collaborative care to clients and am respectful of all cultural, sexual, socio-economic and gender identities.
