You may seek therapy to overcome a crisis in life, such as trauma recovery, stress, life transition, or with the intention to cultivate deeper self-awareness. Together, we work to make meaning of your personal and relational narratives, transform what is no longer at the service of your higher self, and illuminate your true gift and potentials. I am a trauma informed, integrative psychotherapist, using a variety of techniques such as psychodynamic , attachment, Gestalt, somatic experiencing, and mindfulness.

I use an integrated approach that incorporates (to name a few) Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.
You don't need to suffer, and you deserve to feel better. Anxious, Worried, Overwhelmed, or Sad? Therapy can help. I specialize in working with people who have (diagnosed or undiagnosed) Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, and Perfectionism. My style is warm, direct, validating, non-judgmental, friendly. I can help you learn new ways of coping, gain a deeper understanding of yourself, and guide/support you in making meaningful change in your life. I see importance in getting to the root cause (the ‘why’) of the issues you’re experiencing, rather than only treating symptoms.

Jungian analysis is a way of working with psyche. As an explorative non- judgemental approach it is based on the concept of a balance between conscious and unconscious aspects. Analysts work with unconscious images such as dreams, or images. The unconscious communicates in image. The goal is greater synthesis, self awareness, and therefore an expansion of the personality. This is called individuation by C.G.Jung.

I am a relational psychotherapist who works to help clients find a sense of empowerment around the issues that are troubling them, to help them explore and understand the meaning and impact of these experiences, and to find change. I draw on many theories, and work particularly in a psychodynamic way (seeing how one is impacted in the present by one's past experiences). With clients who would like to work on childhood issues, I help them resolve and integrate those experiences - family issues, relationship issues, trauma. Together we decide whether short or long term work is preferred.

I use a relational, psychodynamic approach informed by trauma, attachment, somatic and mindfulness theory.
We are living in difficult times. Many people today are feeling alienated from themselves and others, feeling anxious or depressed. Some are feeling little or nothing; others are overwhelmed, having difficulties with relationships, or they're confused about their direction in life. Wherever you are, I will meet you there with kind attention and encouragement, and together we will unravel your tensions and discover how to help you find your inner strength and resourcefulness. I have been practising as a Registered Social Worker/Psychotherapist for over 20 years and have helped many people find greater health and fulfillment in life.

I offer Psychodynamic Psychotherapy for adults.
Beginning therapy can no doubt feel a bit daunting. The therapy process can be frustrating, painful, and sometimes frightening if we’ve never had the opportunity to be listened to in a way where we can truly express ourselves. But it can also be rewarding and transformative, offering growth as well as a new sense of awareness about ourselves. Free of judgement, we can examine these things together in an effort to both alleviate distress and identify more constructive ways of being and coping.

My orientation is trauma-informed and psychodynamic , as I seek to provide you with the room you need to explore how your past may be impacting, or even overwhelming your present.
Whether you’re experiencing depressed or anxious thoughts or feelings, difficulties in relationships, the impact of past trauma, feel trapped in addictive living, or looking for help navigating school or work-related stress, I would be honoured to help you on your journey. I will help you encounter the sensations, emotions, thoughts, and long-standing narratives keeping you stuck in repetitive disempowering cycles of behaviour and thought. I can help you cultivate a deeper awareness of your mind-body connection. Tuning inward opens up possibilities for building a healthier sense of self and more meaningful relationships.

Therapy is unique to each individual, and I use a strengths-based and narrative approach to highlight the importance of who you are! I specialize in grief, depression, stress, anxiety, and life transitions while incorporating various modalities of therapy such as evidence-based CBT, EFT, and psychodynamic approaches.
The experiences and challenges that we go through in life do not define us, but instead shape us to be the individuals that we are today; These experiences help us to flourish and grow in ways that we could not imagine for ourselves. This is a philosophy that I hold in great regard when it comes to my practice and work with clients. I recognize that therapy can be intimidating to some. However, I am passionate about creating a space where we can come together and work through whatever it is you’re going through, no matter what it may look like.

Do you wish things were different? I work with diverse clients facing life's transitions and challenges. My theoretical framework is relational, using both talk therapy and/or creative/expressive arts modalities. Following your lead, I listen/witness and attune carefully in order to attend to your specific need. We start with where you are most comfortable, which means that talking, imagery, dreamwork and silence are all welcome. Although I work flexibly between short term talk therapy ( psychodynamic psychotherapy) and expressive/creative arts, we safely build our relationship, while co-creating in our therapeutic studio space.

I use an attachment and trauma-informed lens and integrate psychodynamic and relational modalities.
I am committed to building a relationship that supports your unique needs, develops your strengths and fosters your innate ability to heal. Often, we aren’t afforded the time, opportunity or privilege to learn the most beneficial ways to sift through what comes our way. We tackle things as best we can using strategies learned from previous experiences. In some situations, our default strategies end up taking us further away from what we want. This can prevent us from fulfilling our needs - we may get stuck not knowing how to cope or how to move forward. I primarily use non talk-therapy modules of Structural Dissociation, EMDR, DBR.

I work through the Psychodynamic framework.
If you are reading this, you have already made one of the bravest steps towards help and I commend you for taking this first step toward life-long change. One of the reasons I am passionate about my work is because I am blown away by the courage and resilience it takes to embark on therapy. I believe that psychotherapy is first and foremost about relationship – to be able to delve into even the scariest of topics with someone that you trust. Therefore, I do not believe in a ‘band-aid’ approach, but work to create lasting change by seeing how therapy, and our relationship, can acutally be a microcasm for changing your outside world.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Central Toronto, Toronto, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
