I'm a therapist based in Vaughan and Maple, Ontario - with 20 years experience in individual, child, family and couple therapy. As a strong believer in inner peace and acceptance, I work extensively every day to help people overcome suffrage from mental illnesses and other personal struggles. The mind is our most powerful tool, and a healthy mind helps us achieve inner peace and balance that promotes a happy and successful life. Many people experience a mental illness or a life struggle that challenges them every day, and impacts not only their lives, but also the lives of their loved ones. Therapy is a means to finding balance

With over a decade of experience in family , child and individual counselling, specifically in the field of trauma and addictions compiled with my MBA, I am focused on the small steps that transform your struggles into lifestyle successes.
Each person brings their own experiences and challenges into their personal and professional environments. Aligning yourself to form healthy productive relationships can be challenging in the best of circumstances. How much more so, when there are barriers limiting you from achieving your full potential. You must break through the denial and learn the tools that will improve your interactions with others. This takes courage & it’s difficult. Let let me help you improve your quality of life.

I am a Masters qualified therapist, a Registered Psychotherapist with CRPO, certified Life Coach, Couples Counsellor, & Family Therapist .
I WORK WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE. Life can often get in our way, and things can catch up with us and we suddenly realize this is not the life we want for ourselves. Painful, emotional feelings from our past can affect our self-esteem, all our relationships, esp intimate ones, and conflict occurs. Relationships are at our core, and understanding ourselves oft through the lens of difficult relationships help us learn how to be more compassionate, nurture self-love, be better communicators, and to create more trust and belief in oneself. I am often referred to as the "Happiness Locator" & Self Esteem Coach.

Relationship/ Personal Development/ Life Coach. Our relationships help to define who we are as individuals. They are necessary. They can be wonderful. And they can be all-consuming and debilitating. Whether romantic relationships, friendships, family , or even those with work colleagues, these human interactions require exceptional communication and a great deal of work. Harmonious relationships are often unattainable alone and thus can become the cause of great stress, procrastination, and self-doubt​; but with proper guidance, relationships can offer the opportunity for connection, growth and meaningful collaboration.

Family Therapy Counsellors

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
