I specialize in family dynamics, parent child conflict, parenting support, child development and the mental health needs of children.
I believe that relationship and connection is the context for raising children. I am a facilitator of the Dr. Gordon Neufeld paradigm where I assist parents and professionals to make sense of children from the inside out. I practice from a developmental attachment framework that uses insight to inform interventions and practices. The realization of human potential is my focus.

I help stressed and worried parents feel less stressed and more confident in their parenting . Have you been feeling stressed and overwhelmed with your kids because they don’t listen or follow directions no matter how many times you tell them over and over? Do you feel like everything you do is wrong and nothing you do makes a difference, no matter what you try? You must be feeling frustrated. As a parent , I get it. Working with caregivers for seventeen years, I absolutely do get it! None of us are born experts in parenting . You are not alone and you don’t have to do this on your own.

Some challenges frequently addressed through therapy include anxiety, depression, behavioural issues, self-harm, trauma, abuse, family relationship challenges, and parenting strategies.
My practice is currently full and waitlist is closed. I help children, teens, and caregivers when life feels difficult. Kids can struggle with worries, anxiety, anger, behaviour, difficulties at school, or challenges with relationships. Caregivers also need support to cope with these challenges and to develop strategies to best support their child. I can help you find new ways to cope with challenges, create positive change, strengthen relationships, and improve individual balance. I provide counselling with compassion and unconditional acceptance.

I am familiar with the loss, uncertainty, and fear associated with separation and divorce and have knowledge about the legal system, the impact on children and the challenges of co- parenting .
We all feel untethered at various points in life. I can offer a different perspective in those moments, challenge negative self talk and help you recognize and build on your strengths. If you want change in your life, I can help you craft that. If you need to re-establish boundaries, I can help you do this. If anxiety or depression are overwhelming I can help you develop healthy strategies. If you're struggling with changes in relationships or loss of relationship I offer compassionate constructive assistance. There is nothing that you can't talk about with me, and once shared, problems can be carried and resolved together.

I work with adults in the areas of of interpersonal development, emotion regulation, relationship issues, self compassion, communication strategies, family conflict, parenting , grief, building healthier relationships, and coping skills.
Often people seek out counselling when a situation feels too difficult to understand and figure out alone. In an effort to deal with difficult emotions, we can find that the things we do or say make the situation worse, push us further away from the people we want to be, or be close to, and prevent us from fully living the life we want. In my practice I work with adults to help lessen emotional pain while optimizing your personal strengths and growth. I work from a trauma informed, evidence-based perspective using multiple techniques and approaches to best fit your goals and needs. I can work within short term or longer term goals.

If you are willing to make this investment in couples therapy you want to know your therapist is devoted to the work. My virtual Ontario practice (Toronto based) is exclusive to couples.

Presenting issues couples may come to work with me on include: trauma; infidelity; communication; addiction; parenting ; life stressors; sex and intimacy; ADHD; anxiety and depression.

It provides us with the energy we need to meet everyday challenges, whether they involve parenting , resolving family issues, negotiating workplace conflicts, or navigating in the community at large.
I specialize working intensively with couples discouraged by constant arguing, feelings of betrayal, or a lack of intimacy, both emotional and physical. My work is focused on helping clients develop safe, and secure-functioning relationships by knowing who they are, where they have come from, and how their early attachment histories impact their adult life. The more they understand each other, the easier they can repair moments of disconnect. My goal is to help each couple feel safe and secure no matter the issue, and to develop a clear framework so they will know how to move forward as a team. I am a Level 11 PACT therapist.

Do you ever wake up in the morning and stare at yourself in the mirror, feeling like you are just not "enough"? Not good enough at work, school, parenting , your relationship, whatever it may be. You want to crawl back into bed, but you push yourself to keep going, to face the day. The feeling continues to nag at you and you don't know where to turn or what to do. You finally admit to yourself that you need help.

In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
