My approach to individual and couples work integrates such frameworks as Emotionally Focused Therapy, mindfulness and CBT.
35 years experience has taught me much about successful therapy. Being understood, whether as an individual or within a couple is critical; my job is to listen well while bringing you my knowledge about how people work and how change happens. You bring knowledge of your life and together we have a conversation about what might allow change to happen. Sometimes, old stories get in the way and revisiting them is necessary to remove obstacles to change. This can only happen when people feel safe. Creating that nurturing environment is also part of my job. While therapy can be difficult, it is also an exciting and rewarding process.

I am dedicated to developing a safe, non-judgmental, comfortable space through mindfulness, compassion, emotionally focused to explore and transform your painful experiences.
If it didn't rain, we wouldn't have flowers. This is one of my all-time favourite quotes. It has directed my experience both as a client and a therapist. Sometimes we have to weather the storm. We have to sit through, experience and acknowledge our negative emotions. Together we can explore the ups and downs and move towards healing. In doing so, I believe your appreciation for all the amazing things the world has to offer you will increase.

Life is ever changing, bringing unanticipated circumstances which may leave us feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, and stressed. In addition to this, childhood trauma and family upbringing can also have long lasting effects on our choices as adults and the way in which we interact in relationships, preventing us from achieving fulfilment and healthy and positive connections with our partners and children. I can help you to develop tools that work for you to strengthen and drastically improve your self confidence, self image and relationship skills. I can help you understand and control feelings of anger, anxiety, depression, PTSD, Trauma, grief and much more.

Connection with a loved one is the best source of resilience and comfort. As an Emotionally Focused Couple Therapist (EFT), strengthening your connection with your loved one is my goal. EFT helps couples step out of their negative patterns of interaction, slow things down and start to feel, think and express to their partner what is really going on for them under the surface. This enables couples to connect in a more profound and loving way.

We all must work to acknowledge our vulnerabilities, build self-compassion and engage our strengths and resources to realize our desired goals and build our resilience. Therapy offers an opportunity for you to explore, understand and connect with yourself. I have been trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy - an evidence based approach that helps couples who are feeling stuck in a negative cycle re-connect and establish secure bonds.

As an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist with 15 years of experience in addiction and mental health my work with couples focuses on strengthening both the relationship and the self within the relationship.
The idea of needing to seek outside support to improve your relationship can trigger a mix of emotions. You're not along in having feelings of anxiety, shame, or embarrassment about disclosing your concerns. Often couples seek therapy feeling disagreement is what's causing a breakdown in communication, intimacy, and trust. But we're all so different that disagreements are unavoidable. It’s when we realize that the need for connection is what keeps us alive, that we can start to work towards establishing a secure attachment - which is the idea that each partner provides a sense of security, protection, and comfort to the other.

I am attuned and compassionate in my approach to therapy. I offer a non-judgmental presence to help you feel relaxed and clear about the obstacles you want to overcome. Painful emotions often provide useful clues into beliefs about ourselves, other people and the world. This understanding paired with new choices will help you to move beyond what no longer serves you. Using empirical techniques adapted to your needs we will work together on practical ways to create lasting change in your life and relationships. My intention is for you to leave sessions feeling inspired to approach life from a new vantage point.

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. 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.
