Are you tired of struggling and just want to start feeling better?  Do you feel as if you have tried everything and yet nothing has helped?  Have you tried therapy before and while you left your sessions with new insights, your day to day life didn't improve as much as you had hoped? 

I'd like to help.  

I am a special kind of therapist who offers a variety of cutting edge approaches that are based upon the latest research on the brain and the nervous system.  Many of the concerns that typically bring someone into therapy - issues such as anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, anger, addictions, autoimmune disorders and more - have at their root a dysregulated nervous system.
 It is only by working with the body, the brain and the nervous system that we are likely to experience true and lasting improvement.
Since training in modalities such as Somatic Experiencing - a physiological and neurological approach to psychotherapy - I have so enjoyed watching my clients find true happiness, sometimes for the first time in their lives.  Rather than simply learning to cope better with their symptoms, many of my clients now find that they simply don't get as anxious, stressed or depressed, etc... in relation to events that previously would have really triggered them.  I find in my own life, I often suddenly realize I have simply forgotten to be anxious or upset, and that I have been applying the calming skills I have learned without even being fully conscious of doing so.
 I have also newly added NeurOptimal Neurofeedback to my practice.  NeurOptimal is an especially simple, easy and relatively inexpensive approach to neurofeedback.  Rather than being a "treatment" or type of therapy, NeurOptimal involves training the brain so that it begins to function more optimally - as it does so, unpleasant symptoms tend to naturally improve and more pleasant "symptoms" (feelings of calmness and overall wellbeing) tend to increase.  Those using NeurOptimal often experience improvement in areas such as anxiety, stress, depression, anger, acquired brain injury, addiction, alzheimers, learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, sports performance, chemobrain, and more.  In addition to offering neurofeedback sessions in office, I also have personal neurofeedback devices that you can choose to rent out to use at home, providing a much lower per session cost ($40) and enabling you to share brain training with other members of your family, should you so desire.  Please see my neurofeedback page, using the link at the bottom of the site, or watch the videos provided to learn more about NeurOptimal and the very wide range of areas in which people often experience improvement through brain training.  
Other modalities offered include talk therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Energy Psychology, and Energy Medicine.

My clients tend to really enjoy my quirky sense of humour, and sharing gentle laughter together often when we least expect it.Before starting my private practice over 13 years ago, I was a therapist for over 10 years at Hamilton Health Sciences' McMaster University Medical Centre, predominantly in the Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence Care Centre.
I am assisted in my home office by my two canine assistants:  Maggie, who is a 13 year old schnauzer-poodle cross and Jasper, my 3 year old beagle who is a St. John's Ambulance therapy dog.
