I employ a range of therapeutic techniques and frameworks in order to meet your individual needs including but not limited to psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), attachment-based , relational and mindfulness based therapies.
The path to therapy varies greatly from person to person: a quest for a deeper understanding of the self and the world around you, a response to an immediate crisis or life transition, or a desire to overcome ongoing obstacles that stand in the way of your goals and life satisfaction. Whatever your journey to therapy may be, I provide a comfortable, non-judgmental environment in which to explore long-standing patterns, personal perceptions, family experiences and current situations, offering the opportunity to increase self-awareness and pursue greater personal fulfillment in your relationships, career, and other areas of life.

I offer a safe and supportive space for you or your child to address recovery from the impact of trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, and other common issues, as well as guidance with executive functioning skills.

I have been working with people faced with significant loss for the past twenty years. People often ask me if this work is depressing - I always say that the stories I hear are not only stories of loss - they are love stories. We grieve becaue we love. Sometimes that love is complicated, and so the grief is complicated. Sometimes the loss changes us in ways that we feel are unbearable and unsustainable. My work is about helping you move from a state of deep pain and preoccupation with loss to a place where you can reengage with life.

My practice is gentle and focused on supporting you in helping yourself. I offer supportive counseling and empowerment by promoting self-help and self-compassion. I do not diagnose or label unless it is useful in an educational way . Instead, I am more concerned with what is happening in the here-and-now, what happened before, and in helping you figure out "what now?". Maybe you feel stuck and unsure how to navigate a life transition or adjustment. I work with individuals and families on healing the ripple effects of trauma, addiction, codependency, and grief.

Connecting with the right therapist is so important. Finding someone who can help you find words to describe your experience, identify solutions to your problems, and develop strategies to reduce your stress. When you connect with the right person you know because you feel less alone. I have years of experience working with adults, children, adolescents, and families who faced seemingly insurmountable problems. Together, we found strength in the struggle, strategies to manage it all, and ways to feel more connected. What I love most about being a therapist is the possibility.

As the world begins to move toward the period of "post pandemic" we may find ourselves struggling. Reports of anxiety and depression are on the rise, particularly among children. Managing our own feelings alongside our loved ones can also feel extremely overwhelming. I feel it is important to have an objective party with whom you can share and process your difficulties while improving healthy coping skills.

I work with adults suffering from anxiety, panic, depression, and aftermaths of psychological trauma. I help individuals who experience significant distress because of their hard relationships with the toxic parent or partner.

I treat a wide spectrum of conditions including mood and anxiety disorders (e.g., bipolar and depressive disorders, panic and phobias), ADHD, marital issues and PTSD. My niche is in personality disorders (e.g., borderline and narcissistic personality disorder). I have extensive experience treating trauma sequelas, dissociative disorders and helping individuals overcome grief. My practice also includes treatment of eating disorders in adults (e.g., bulimia) and parasuicidal behaviour. Although my practice is mainly guided by empirical modalities, I tend to approach each client in an eclectic manner to customize treatment as needed.

I work with individuals feeling anxiety or depression in regard to their relationships and careers. Making choices is difficult at all stages of life for fear of "getting it wrong." With insight and modification, we can make choices with confidence. When it comes to personal and occupational relationships, we may struggle with communication, boundaries, setting limits, and voicing needs. I help my clients improve in these areas. We thoroughly evaluate communication and conflicts with others to improve effectiveness, self esteem, and esteem from others in personal relationships and at work.

Attachment-based Therapists

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
