Drawing from a diverse pool of therapeutic techniques, and favouring such modalities as Internal Family Systems, Psychodynamic , and Relational Psychotherapies, my clinical orientation adheres to a collaborative, anti-oppressive, and strengths-based framework toward intrapsychic healing.
The mind has a funny way of working against us sometimes. After all, we are just organisms doing our best with what we have been given. Now more than ever do we need to ensure that our psychology is operating in our best interest, and at its fullest potential. My mandate is to accompany you on your idiosyncratic voyage toward self-discovery, cognitive clarity, and psychological sovereignty. You have had the answers all along, but now you have a fellow traveler to help you find what you may have overlooked.

I integrate various forms of psychotherapy, including psychodynamic , cognitive, somatic & attachment oriented.
We all have natural capacities to right ourselves when things go wrong, but we usually don’t feel that way when we’re looking for therapy. Instead, we often feel stuck and alone, overwhelmed by our feelings and unsatisfied in our relationships. I work with people who want to get unstuck and connect to their innate capacities for growth and change. My main goal is to help you have a positive and true experience of yourself and deeper connections with others.

I ground my practice in social constructivism, and I draw from a diverse range of interventions, from CBT and psychodynamic orientations.
I have worked with individuals from all walks of life who have endured various challenges and have had different expectations out of therapy. I have worked with people who needed some short-term support, long-term support and everything in between. When working with clients who have never been to therapy before, one of my goals in our work is to explore their understandings of therapy and therapists. Regardless of how long we work together, I feel it is important for me to impart on all clients their level of comfort with their therapist should always be a priority.

My work draws on the humanistic, existential and psychodynamic traditions of Western psychology, and is grounded in the wisdom of Eastern philosophies, somatic work, mindfulness and meditation.
Suffering is an inherent part of the human experience. In the course of a lifetime, crises happen, unpredictable challenges arise, and in response we develop habit patterns that are often protective but also inhibit our growth and freedom. Therapy will help clear the path so that you can see a way forward. I walk that path with you and provide a container for self-exploration and inquiry. I work with mood disturbances, trauma, attachment issues, self-esteem, and spiritual emergence. Depth therapy is a journey that will take you into yourself and lead you back to yourself while being witnessed by a safe, compassionate presence.

Effective psychodynamic practice requires the compassion and insight that comes only from personal experience.
Our efforts to protect ourselves from painful feelings often lead to greater suffering. Fleeing from our emotional truth, we unconsciously perpetuate the very distress we seek to avoid, repeating unhealthy relationships or self-destructive patterns of living. We may find ourselves overwhelmed by anxiety, anger, despair or emptiness, feeling like our lives are not our own. It takes courage to explore our feeling-life and face the emotional truth of our past and present. I offer a safe, reliable and uniquely human environment in which to cultivate future possibilities of integration, spontaneity, creativity and self-realization, to fully inhabit life.

My training is in psychodynamic and existential-integrative psychotherapy.
We all deserve space to be heard in our authentic selves yet the grip of life's challenges can leave us feeling isolated & misguided. Through collaborative conversation therapy offers opportunity for increased self-awareness, discovery and aliveness that can support you in reaching your potential. Through the weekly practice of meeting for sessions in the presence of a caring and thoughtful professional, time is designated for you. The process of uncovering your authentic self can be exciting and supportive as you navigate life's challenges - helping to refine a meaningful path as you journey through life.

Are you finding it hard to connect with yourself and others? Have you been feeling down, disinterested, withdrawn or anxious? Perhaps recent experiences have left you feeling crippled with self-doubt. Or maybe the best way to describe it is simply that you’re feeling stuck? I would like to help. Together we will identify persisting patterns of relating to the self and your environment that leave you feeling this way. We will chart a course to self-awareness and acceptance through alternative paths and choices. Using a psychodynamic approach, I create a safe space for us to explore difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

I draw on elements of CBT and EFT (Emotion-Focused Therapy), but my work is more psychodynamic and person-centred.
When do you get to be you? Day to day, we rarely talk about who we truly are. My practice is a warm, safe space where you can express hard feelings openly without fear of being judged. If you choose to work with me, I will hold space for you to focus, identify, and sit with potentially uncomfortable emotions and thoughts. I believe that emotions hold meaning and serve a purpose for us. The more we become aware of where our feelings, beliefs, and reactions come from, the better equipped we are to choose how we will respond in the future - rather than just reacting. We can work together to build this emotional awareness.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in 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.
