I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, an approach that looks beneath surface patterns of blame and alienation to underlying feelings that often drive such patterns: loneliness, inadequacy, shame, despair and fear.
Whether you want to work in a short-term way, finding practical solutions to problems you face, or in a more open-ended way, exploring and resolving core issues, I bring a warm and gentle presence and listen deeply to what you bring. I have worked as a therapist for over 20 years helping clients address a wide range of issues including relationship difficulties, stress, anxiety, depression, early trauma and loss. My role often involves encouraging clients by acknowledging the wisdom and resources they already possess and by noticing and supporting new changes as they emerge.

I use an eclectic approach and take from different evidence-based psychotherapeutic interventions that I am trained in to establish an approach based on my clients needs, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Motivational Interviewing, and EMDR Therapy and Trauma-Informed Therapy.
We all face challenges in life and can lose a sense of ourselves. I strive to uncover a person’s authentic self, in allowing them to understand their purpose and bring empowerment and healing. During our meetings, it is important for me to create an alliance with you from a non-judgemental space that fosters trust. I value all parts of a person that are conflicted, afraid, ashamed, and parts that appear relentless.

My approach to therapy is relational, co-creative, and integrative, drawing from narrative and trauma-informed approaches, mindfulness, attachment, Internal Family Systems, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and enneagram work.
It’s been said that showing up for ourselves is the hardest, most important work we’ll ever do. Whether you find yourself here grieving a significant loss, processing a difficult life change, or simply wanting to explore a different way of relating to yourself and the people around you, I know that it takes courage to be here. I see therapy as a sort of pilgrimage to our authentic, whole selves, sometimes in the face of darkness and grief. Journeying through what feels difficult in our lives is part of bringing our fullest and best into the world, and I would be honoured to accompany you in this journey.

I provide psychotherapeutic support, using an eclectic approach drawing from solution-focused, narrative, cognitive behavioural and emotionally focused modalities, in alignment with a strengths-based, trauma-informed, harm-reduction framework, which takes into consideration individual social and cultural factors impacting people’s lives.
Life is full of overwhelming internal and external challenges that can impact our sense of self, daily lives, goals, relationships, etc. Sometimes we don’t understand what is coming up or how to address it, which is completely normal and quite common because human experiences are complex. The truth is that we all come to a point in our lives when we need some support. Even though what society may tell us may be contradictory, acknowledging this and seeking help is a sign of strength.

Do you suffer from overwhelming emotions, depression, or anxiety? Are you feeling adrift or disconnected in your relationships? I bring an open curiosity to your experiences – whatever those may be – and, working together, we can uncover and navigate the internal and external obstacles you face. My goal as your therapist is to create a genuine, empathetic relationship between you and I, through which healing and change can take place. I also see individuals as embedded in broader social contexts that shape how we think, feel, and behave, and which may be implicated in psychological and interpersonal problems.

Emotionally Focused Counsellors
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. West Toronto, Toronto Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
