Life happens. We find ourselves stuck in difficult situations or immobilized by painful emotional experiences. Therapy deals with difficult issues but it should flow, feel natural and create a sense of empowerment. I hope to provide you with a sufficiently welcoming atmosphere to enable you to talk about what hurts without becoming overwhelmed by the process.

I chose to specialize in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) because it shows us how to understand our reactions in terms of thoughts, behaviours and physical body sensations that underpin human emotions. It helps us make sense of things.

I have been working in the field since 1996, starting as a crisis intervention worker in the ER of a local hospital and finishing in an outpatient clinic for mood and anxiety disorders where I work to this day. I have a BA in Psychology from the University of Western Ontario and a Master of Social Work from University of Toronto. I am a regulated health professional registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.

I look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions about therapy or if just need some basic information on how to deal with problems that you are currently facing. As it is normal to have many questions, I offer a limited number of short face-to-face consultations to help you determine if I am the right person for you to confide your difficulties to.
