I'm a Registered Psychotherapist with the Ontario Government's new College of Psychotherapy. I live and work in the Toronto area, specializing in relationships, depression, anxiety and addictions.
I have a Masters Degree, am a graduate of the Psychospiritual Therapy Program at the Transformational Arts College in
Toronto and the Solution-Focussed Certificate Course at the University of Toronto. I have training in many modes of psychotherapy but my emphasis is
EFT and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy. I have an advanced certificate in EFT and I am
listed as an approved practitioner on the website run by the founder of EFT, Gary Craig.
In addition to my private practice, I am the Bereavement Co-ordinator at
one of Toronto's largest health care providers, Better Living Health and Community Services, where I am responsible for intake,
private and group counselling, training and case management.
I am a Certified Member of
the OACCPP, which requires, in addition to a graduate degree from a recognized
university, 3,000 hours of clinical experience and demonstrated learning in at
least four (4) of the following areas as they relate to psychotherapy:
I work with clients suffering from
depression, anxiety and panic attacks; addictions; relationship problems
(including those in the gay/lesbian/transgendered community); loneliness; phobias and fears.
I look at my clients holistically,
i.e. taking into consideration all aspects of their lives including their
physical health. There are many studies which show spiritual and nutritional
factors directly bear on our mental health and I am well versed in diet as it relates to emotions. I often include coaching
with the therapy, to help people formulate action plans to move forward with
their goals, whether that's a new relationship, a more balanced life or job
success. I also spend some time going over nutrition and lifestyle as these can
sabotage efforts to feel better.
I love helping people find their inner strength
and the diverse qualities that have gotten them to this point in their lives;
it is a privilege for me to be permitted to join your journey for a brief
time in ways that may change us both... I have certainly learned as much about myself
as my clients have learned about themselves, and I owe them all a great debt of
