In addition, I have completed 5 years of training in Gestalt Therapy at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto.
I am a registered psychotherapist (RP) and my therapy is an invitation for you to work with me in a supportive, caring and non-judgmental environment so that you can connect at a deeper level with your true and authentic being. This, according to Rollo May, “always involves the search for our values and purposes” because without “values there would be only barren despair." I believe that principles of respect, care and knowing are of fundamental importance when we work to support someone who is trying to make a change, realize their abilities, and connect with their own uniqueness and individuality.

My approach is eclectic, incorporating elements from Emotion Focused; Gestalt; Dialectical Behaviour; and Feminist approaches.
Healthy sexuality is a key component to overall wellbeing, and its my honour to be with you on that journey! Whether you want to explore your desires, address sexual shame, or improve your communication skills, no concern is too trivial for sex therapy. I offer a presence that is calming, approachable, and non-judgmental, with small doses of humour and irreverence.

I am training in Gestalt therapy, an approach that focuses on cultivating awareness and acceptance of where one already is in order to access more choice and agency.
I work with people experiencing many different hues in the spectrum of being alive. Maybe you are stuck, worried, numb, or furious. Maybe you are feeling alone navigating injustice. Maybe you're trying to make sense of a relationship, or to sift through a murky part of your inner landscape. Whatever you might arrive with, I will stand with you as together we take a slow, deep look into the river of your life.

In addition to completing the five-year Gestalt therapy training program, I‘ve completed and continue to pursue advanced training in applying the field theory approach of contemporary Gestalt therapy to treat experiences of depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive compulsiveness and relationship difficulties.
Like the average houseplant, humans reach toward the sun. Unlike your cactus, however, humans also reach for meaning, we need the nourishment it gives us to keep growing. Without it, we wither.

I am a compassionate, authentic and inclusive psychotherapist trained in Gestalt Psychotherapy.
If you are experiencing struggles and seeking support, you are not alone. Loss, trauma, conflict, life changes, emotional and mental suffering do not discriminate. Any one of us can go through periods full of difficulties - some more than others, but every person has personal knowledge of suffering in their lives. Therapy is not easy and there is no quick fix, but I am here to work with you, hear and understand you, and support your self-discovery process. I want to learn about your story, path and beliefs, and together with you identify areas where you have strengths and areas where you need to explore and try new ways of being.

My core psychotherapeutic training is Humanistic - specifically Gestalt Therapy (Relational/Embodied/Experiential).
So many of us have learned to shut down emotions in order to carry on. You may have noticed that this can only last so long. You do not need to have a mental health diagnosis in order to access therapy. All that is needed is the desire for personal and relational growth. We heal via safe re-connection with other humans - your story deserves to be listened to.

Immersed in both Gestalt therapy and psychoanalysis, I can meet clients relationally at any depth.
In psychotherapy, as in life, we grow through relationship. Our sense of self emerges in meeting the other. I offer a safe and stimulating environment in which to experience your patterns of relating, explore how you make meaning, and experiment with new ways of being.

Utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy and Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), I incorporate art therapy and play therapy techniques to facilitate self-expression and healing.
Too often, people endure their obstacles alone, convinced that they must shoulder their burdens in silence. Whether it's a child struggling with emotional regulation, a teenager navigating the complexities of anxiety amid life's changes, or an adult wrestling with depression, everyone can benefit from specialized support at various points in their lives.

Therapy is a powerful process that can open you up in ways that are familiar and unexpected. It can be both scarry and beautiful. But what is most important is that you trust and feel safe with the person you are opening up to. As a Gestalt trained humanist psychotherapist with over 20 years of varied therapeutic experience I make the cultivation of that relationship and your trust the foundation of our work. Once this co-created safe space is established, no matter what shows up in sessions – fear, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, trauma, depression, family issues, alienation, substance use, feelings of inadequacy -

I came to Gestalt Psychotherapy after a decade of teaching yoga and meditation workshops in Canada, Greece, Mexico and Nicaragua. I noticed that wisdom practices (such as meditation, yoga, breath-work, and reflection) lead people to face vulnerability and perhaps even pain inside their minds, hearts and bodies. Many people have insights about themselves, but they believe they can mentally figure it out on their own. We are not meant to do all the processing on our own. The therapeutic relationship allows us the support of a compassionate and trained witness so we can explore what is present.

I approach therapy by brainstorming life and it's complexities. by co-creating spaces where experiment offers perspective, art offers a bird's eye view, where dialogue leads to reflections, communication creates connection and movement allows for shifts. Together we can explore coping mechanisms; how do we look at intimacy; how we perceive our boundaries with another person or persons, among other curiosities and challenges that life presents. ​ I am a graduate of Gestalt Institute of Psychotherapy in Toronto, Canada and a registered member of College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).
