Have you just about given up all hope because your life "has always been this way?" Perhaps you are having difficulty adjusting to a loved one with a developmental disability. Or maybe your child is facing difficulties of their own. Whatever the challenge is, I believe that you have the autonomy to edit and make meaning of your story.

With an inclusive, open and positive approach, I work with families, adults, adolescents, and children , on a wide variety of issues including self-esteem, communication, identity, anxiety, depression, decision-making, relationship problems, mood disorder, life transitions, post-partum, parenting and family issues.
Our connections to one another and the communities we work and play in are foundational to our health and well-being. It is through relationship that we learn about ourselves and how best to be in relationship with others. At times, stress can threaten to overwhelm, priorities can become unclear and uncertainties can mount. We all benefit from a consistent and trusting relationship in which to identify our feelings, thoughts and behaviors, to be supported in our efforts to determine and utilize our own strengths and resources, to build our coping strategies, and begin to create the change we choose to work on in any stage of life

I love working with kids (9 and up), adolescents, adults, and their families. I help my patients identify their own strengths and use them to overcome mental health challenges. I strongly believe that every child has the capacity to heal in their family environment, and that their parents deserve a compassionate and competent provider who can help them overcome difficult behaviors. I also work with adults, particularly those diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. My patients are typically suffering from extreme emotional and interpersonal dysregulation. I help them learn to regulate their emotions and mend relationships.

I am trained as a Canadian and US-trained physician, a psychoanalyst, couple and family therapist, and child /adult psychiatrist.
Couple and family therapy can sometimes serve as an efficient and effective strategy to improve the wellness of the whole family system. Sometimes severe psychological distress and suffering is located within the couple or family, rather than solely within a given person as it may appear at times. I have built up a strong skill set to offer a particular form of couple and family therapy known as "psychoanalytic couple/family therapy" which zeroes in on the undercurrent, unconscious meanings for destructive, relationship patterns that are outside the awareness of the couple/family.
