About Me

GetFileAttachment copy

I am a Registered Psychotherapist and a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I am also a clinical member of The Ontario Society of Psychotherapists (OSP) and a general member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists (OACCPP). I hold a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology from the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. I have a private practice in mid-town Toronto, in the heart of Rosedale. I offer individual, couple and family therapy. I work with a broad range of clients of all ages, life stages and life experiences.  Every day, I have the privilege of listening to my clients share their thoughts and feelings with the express purpose of helping them to overcome their challenges and discover their best selves.

Being a psychotherapist is much more than my job. It is my calling and my privilege to do this work. I have a deep appreciation for the stories and struggles of my clients, and a strong desire to help.  I am honored to be a trusted confidante, advisor, guide, teacher, emotional caregiver, nurturer, and a safe place for so many. My approach to talk therapy is diverse. First and foremost, I am a humanistic psychotherapist. I believe that we are inherently good, that our primary drive is to self-actualize and reach our greatest potential. I believe we make sense of our world using reason, connection and shared human values and by creating meaning and purpose. I believe we must relinquish our ‘victim mentality’ and take full responsibility for our lives, no matter the hand we’ve been dealt.

Empathy, respect, responsibility, self-empowerment, and meaningful connections … are some of my guiding principles. My job is to listen keenly and actively; to help you uncover your deeper emotional GetFileAttachment-6layers; to help you make sense of things that are troubling you; to help you manage your not-so-adaptive styles of thinking; to help you recognize your dysfunctional patterns of behaviour; to help you develop more acute self-awareness, and sharper awareness of others; and to help you build greater emotional strength, balance, and resilience.
