Are you looking for a safe space to express your emotions, needs, and troubles? Have things become too unbearable and you are not sure where to turn? Looking for a safe place to process your feelings and difficult situations? I firmly believe that psychotherapy is a nurturing place that allows you to express yourself in a safe, warm, and supporting environment. Psychotherapy involves processing difficult emotions, and defining personal goals with a trained professional. I specialize in providing emotion-focused therapy techniques to help you on your life pathway.
Do you often feel on edge? Worried that something bad is going to happen? Do you have trouble concentrating, trouble sleeping? Do you develop physical symptoms such as shaking, hot flashes, a racing heartbeat, stomach-ache, headache, or a lump in your throat? Does this ever occur even when you can't even think of any reason to feel this way? Do you feel that what you’re experiencing is preventing you from being your best self and living your best life?
Do you feel overwhelmed when trying to find a healthy balance between your work life and your personal life? Do you find that your relationships have been affected as a result of your stress or anxiety? We tend to feel hopeless, exhausted, and defeated when we feel like we are battling our difficulties alone. My goal is to work with you to help you overcome your struggles, as well as to guide you towards making the changes in your life that you have envisioned.

My ideal client is willing to engage in self-reflection, explore the deeper existential issues related to his/her predicament, and discover the pathways of actualizing his/her potential and dream. Such a client can be a new college graduate struggling for a better understanding of her self-identity or a senior questioning his life's meaning. The issues I am best suited to addressing are both the dark sides of the human condition-such as depression, anxiety, anger, loss, suffering, and death-and the bright sides of personal growth and flourishing.
We're born into a world of stories about reality and about us. Our friends and our parents tell them to us. School, work and media tell them to us. And we start telling them to ourselves. In a time of mass media deception, false role models, unreal images, and dysfunctional families, our inner truth gets more and more hidden. The re-discovery of who we are is crucial for living a meaningful life. In Groundwork we become co-coonspirators in finding the real story about you, finding the authentic grounds of your existence, and helping you choose to be real.

Life is a journey with unexpected challenges and at times suffering. We all need supports and strategies to rediscover our inner strengths. I work in a partnership with you as we explore and unpack your relationships, your roles and your sense of self. There is always hope and meaning even in the darkest places. Also in all relationships there are times when one or both partners feel hopeless, frustrated, betrayed or deeply hurt by the other. In both individual and couple counseling we work together to develop new techniques towards not only coping, but towards finding renewed hope and meaning. I love what I do!

Depression, anxiety? Coping with life at times can be heartbreaking for yourself or the ones that you love. Having someone to mentally walk with you through those times is a way to reconnect and return to that good place in life. The heartbreaks could be divorce, depression, grief, anxiety, separation from family. Over the course of our lives, we all experience emotional wounds, which hinders us from personal growth. Having a safe place to talk and express your emotions is what I provide. Here you gain self-understanding and self-awareness and be empowered to make changes to grow towards your desired outcome of your authentic self.
I recognize and honour the powerful role that the mind plays in health and healing. I am a Registered Psychotherapist and have been working in the field for 15 years. I specialize in couple-based therapy and also work with individuals. My approach with clients is by listening attentively, developing a therapeutic alliance, empathy, and support without judgment. In my years as a therapist, I have been considered a very effective therapeutic partner with clients in sessions. I genuinely like helping people and seeing clients evolve and heal!
In my clinical work, I conduct focused, short-term psychotherapy that are customized for each individual client's needs. Client-therapist collaboration is emphasized and a supportive therapeutic environment is provided. I favour the use of approaches which help clients to understand, control and integrate their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours. In my forensic work, I adopt a combined approach in which both clinical and actuarial methods are used for achieving accurate and thorough evaluation. Every attempt is made to integrate scientific findings with professional judgement in addressing psycho-legal issues.
I am a registered Clinical Psychotherapist with the Ontario college of Registered Psychotherapists and a registered Clinical Counsellor and Psychotherapist with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapist Association in Clinical Counselling and Psychotherapy with Child, Youth, and Individuals; Grief, Panic, Anxiety, ADD, ADHD, Marital and Family Therapy; Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; and Education, Career Counselling and Assessments.

In the midst of dealing with stressors, it is normal to feel confused, anxious, or lost. It can be easy to neglect our own emotional, physical, and mental self-care. I welcome the opportunity to assist any individual in reorienting and making sense of their current reality while returning to a place of self-love and wellbeing. I work with adults who face a variety of challenges, including stress, adjustment-related difficulties, depression, anxiety, trauma, relational difficulties, and emotional regulation.
I principally utilize a depth oriented/integrative approach that tries to understand where the patient is coming from and what caused the surface symptoms they experience. I believe all symptoms have a purpose and a hidden message behind them. I help people resolve the meaning behind their depression, anxiety and stress from a holistic standpoint. My goal is to help solve your difficulties at the root level, rather than merely treating the surface symptoms.

Do you or someone you love struggle with alcoholism, drug addiction or compulsive sexual behaviors? If your answer is yes, you are not alone. Whether you are still active in your addiction, already in recovery, recently relapsed or dealing with the anguish of having an addict in your family, you are facing profound difficulties. No matter what the addiction-alcohol, drugs, prescription meds, sex, or gambling-its effects are devastating. I can help. These addictions destroy lives and families, who too often continue enabling behaviors that fuel the addiction.
