Accepting new patients. In-person sessions (Centretown). The goal of my treatments is not only to alleviate or extinguish psychological symptoms, but also to allow patients to better know and understand themselves. Working with an interpersonal psychoanalytic approach will lead you in the exploration of both conscious and unconscious experiences, which fosters a better functioning within your interpersonal contexts. I have been working with a large variety of patients of all ages, treating them not as a mere set of symptoms but as whole people with unique and unrepeatable stories.

I have a deep interest in helping people open to explore their core selves, and increase their self-awareness, focus, attention, and concentration. Although I have a special interest in working with elite athletes, and physicians, I believe that a strengths-based approach rooted in the priniciples of high-performance are applicable to all of us. Whether one is working in a demanding profession, pursuing academics or specialized training, there is limitless potential in all to self-examine, focus on what is truly important, and live meaningful lives guided by our personal ethics.

I help adults struggling with anxiety, depression and adaptation to life challenges and losses. My focus is on creating a warm, non-judgemental and safe environment where you can unpack your painful experiences and examine emotions, thoughts and behaviours that might contribute to your suffering and isolation. My goal in psychotherapy is to help you to find balance and wholeness by accepting and incorporating all authentic parts of yourself, including shadows. A painful experience is an opportunity to wake up from familiar negative patterns and change them once and for all.

My theory of change is founded on the premise that healing and growth can emerge through nurturing interpersonal connections. I stand by the belief that we are relational beings, meaning that our interactions with others influence our mood, sense of self, and well-being. Through sessions, whether I work with you or your relationship, I facilitate dynamic interventions to create new bonding moments that foster cognitive awareness, emotional regulation, and behavioural changes. As a therapist, my goal is to help you shift from a place of reactiveness and hopelessness to a place of communication and connection.
