Hello, and welcome.  I’m a Registered Psychotherapist providing in-person and online therapy across the province.  I understand that mental health and addictions can be challenging topics to talk about.  There are many emotions that can get in the way of reaching out.  Also, we may not fully understand the impact of the experiences we’ve been through or how to express it.  I am here to help you with these things. 

With over 16 years of experience, I've had the privilege of working with many individuals who have struggled with similar challenges. As someone who is deeply passionate about therapy, my ultimate goal is to help you achieve lasting peace of mind by developing the skills, strength, and understanding you need to overcome obstacles and thrive. 

Details about my practice are listed below.  Please feel free to visit my website or send me an email if you have questions.  If you feel I may be a good fit for your needs, I invite you to book a free consult by clicking here.  I look forward to connecting with you and answering your questions. 

Professional background

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) in Ontario with independent practice designation. I specialize in helping individuals struggling with addictive behaviours such as substances, gambling, gaming and sex/porn.  I am also a certified sex addiction counselor (CSAT).  
Addictions are usually just the symptom of underlying issues.  Therefore,  I have also focused my practice on treating:
  • trauma
  • grief
  • anxiety/depression
  • family of origin issues
  • relationship problems
  • communication and assertiveness
  • men's issues
  • youth developmental issues
  • parenting
  • life transitions

My qualifications:

  • 16 years in my own recovery and working as a Psychotherapist
  • Trained specifically in gambling, gaming, sex/porn, trauma, grief and family/relational systems.
  • Certified Sex Addiction Counsellor with IITAP
  • Registered psychotherapist in the province of Ontario with Independent Practice designation.
  • Masters degree in psychology.

What is different about my therapy:
  • I am often told that my therapy feels like it has a solid framework to it and that each session tends to build on previous ones as a bigger picture unfolds.  
  • I use reflective tasks frequently which increases engagement with the therapeutic process and provides a sense of empowerment.
  • My therapy tends to be focused and I try to get to the heart of the issue efficiently.
  • I integrate narrative, experiential, cognitive, schema and emotional therapies in a way that my clients find very effective.  They get the advantage of many therapies in one therapist. 

My treatments/therapies:
  • Task-based model of therapy - where during each session we work on tasks designed to integrate a range of therapies, some of which are listed here.
  • Schema therapy - where we look at the collection of beliefs, experiences and stories that are encoded in your mind during the formative years.  
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) - where we examine the connection between your body, mind, thoughts, feelings and actions. 
  • Combined Schema Therapy and CBT (SCBT) -  a unique method of my own. combining these two approaches creates an intense and insightful therapy.  
  • Experiential Therapy – where we use role-play and psychodramatic techniques to evoke change.
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) - where the focus is on emotional regulation.
  • Narrative Therapy - examining our old stories about ourselves and replacing them with new ones. 
  • Family Systems Therapy - where we work on change within family and relational systems. 

  • $160 + tax for a 55-minute online session
  • $180 + tax for an in-person session in Vaughan, ON
