Primary Focus


I practice listening, attention and being curious with my clients.
I provided a safe, supportive, experienced and knowledgeable therapeutic presence.  
 
How do the first couple of sessions work?
The first session or two allows me to gather essential information about clients’ experiences, concerns, developmental and medical history, this, in turn, informs the therapeutic goals and mode of therapeutic approach we will take. Together we develop a treatment map that is based on the client's goals and what they wish to accomplish in therapy. 
 
My philosophy and ways of working 
I strive to integrate features of a client’s mind, body, and spirit, to promote and support their health, healing, and change. For over thirty years I have worked as a scientist-practitioner, developing practical strategies, educational programs and revitalizing retreats, which encourage and support the re-discovery of clients innate wisdom, resources and power to change and heal.
 
I travel with my clients as they journey through their life’s challenges towards wholeness and well being.  
 
I also practice as a healing coach, helping people manage any worry, anxiety, and pain they may experience with medical diagnosis, interventions or procedures.
 
I have a general practice in clinical and counselling psychology with adults.
 
Cost
Third party extended health, MVA or WSIB insurance plans may pay for psychological services.
Fees range from $185 - $225 per clinical hour (50 min), depending on the nature and type of services and the experience of the providing practitioner. I conduct supervision with three associates who provide psychological  and counselling services.
 
 
Education and training 
I have advanced degrees (a doctorate and two masters degrees) in psychology from University of Toronto (OISE) and McGill University.
 
I have completed advanced studies at Harvard University with advanced professional training, and research in Psychoneuroimmunology (mind-body medicine), Hypnosis, Imagery and Health, Consciousness Studies, Meditation, Cancer Stress Management, Traditional Healing and Pastoral Care.
 
I also have an interest in the psychological fallout and emotional effects of living with a prior concussion, head injuries or temporal lobe/complex-partial seizures.
 
Other hobbies and interests 
In my spare time, I enjoy singing in a choir, biking, hiking, traveling with my husband, and being with friends.
