As a therapist I take a client centered approach when working with individuals, couples and families so that you guide the service based on what you require to heal. I believe that collaboration is key to the therapeutic process. It ensures that you remain the expert in your own life while I provide a safe, structured and therapeutic environment to do the work you set out to accomplish.
My role is one of respectful and knowledgeable facilitator on your journey of self-discovery. My hope is that you feel empowered during your appointment to discuss what you feel is most troublesome in your life; past, present or future. I am a firm believer that self-compassion is a key part of the therapeutic process because no matter how broken one may feel, it is possible to love yourself again (or for the first time!).
More generally speaking, relationships are also a very important component of our emotional health and well-being. At times we find ourselves in relationships that are very complex and tricky to navigate. When working with couples I work from the structured approach of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. It's effectiveness is backed up by research suggesting that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery, of the best results of any couples therapy out there! My hope is that both people in the relationship feel heard, respected and encouraged to share their story during session. Couples therapy is a way to deepen emotional accessibility and responsiveness with ones partner; creating a solid and secure bond. This foundation allows couples to work through your distress and begin to feel safe as an individual within the relationship.

More Info About My Practice
My rate is $130 per hour. Although clients are required to pay for session upfront, it is possible that your insurance provider may cover the cost of session. I encourage you to inquire with your insurance provider to see if they cover registered social workers. I provide a free 20 minute phone consultation to potential clients so that you get a feel for the therapist I am and to ask any questions about the services I offer.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Although I am skilled in working with a variety of client concerns, I specialize in addiction and mental health. Specifically, working with families where one or more members is substance involved. This may include the use, abuse or dependence of alcohol, illicit drugs, prescription medication or compulsive gambling. I am dedicated to working with families who are seeking support, education and counselling to deal with their concerns.
Family and friends often experience many of the same stressors as their loved one who is substance involved. To live in constant fear for your loved ones safety becomes exhausting and overwhelming. Family members at times, take on more responsibility within the relationship and during daily life (for example: child care, household and financial responsibilities etc.) which strains their connection to one-another. It is for these reasons (and many more) that it is so vital to your own health and well-being to ensure you get the support you need if you have a loved one who is substance involved. I work with families to learn about addiction, understand the stages of change, recognize the difference between enabling and supportive behaviours, improve communication, rebuild trust and work through forgiveness. I also help families to navigate the addictions and mental health treatment system within Ontario, understand how to deal with your loved one returning from treatment, and to create your own plan of self-care.
