In my counselling I explore, with clients, what
internal factors (thoughts, feelings, and assumptions) may be limiting positive
growth and success, and also examine whether certain lifestyle changes can help
them build resiliency, confidence better health, and achieve personal transformation.
My approach is both collaborative and
directive. While I recognize that some
clients want nothing more than a safe place to discuss their thoughts and
feelings. Others want and need more
direction and input. My counselling
incorporates strategies and techniques from CBT, narrative therapy, EMDR, and
solution-focused therapy. I work with
each client to determine which approach best suits their needs. I strive to be as open, objective and
non-judgemental as possible and I welcome everyone, regardless of ethnic or
religious background, gender identity or sexual orientation.
I offer ‘walk’ therapy, along with traditional
talk-therapy, for clients who want to combine the benefits of counselling with
the physical and psychological benefits of exercise, or are simply looking for an
alternative to the traditional counselling format. In addition, I am happy to do sessions via
Skype or telephone.
I am located in downtown Toronto
(Bloor/Spadina and Dundas/University) that are easily accessible by public transportation. Location for walk therapy sessions is
Session fees are covered by most extended health
insurance plans. A reduced rate is available for clients without health insurance.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information or would like to set up a consultation.
