My Approach to Helping

I am currently providing video therapy only. Please contact me directly to learn about privacy & confidentiality.

Are you overwhelmed or struggling? Are you feeling lost or stuck? Are your relationships strained? It takes strength to acknowledge something in your life just isn't working, and courage to embark on a journey of self-discovery & personal growth. I help diverse youth and adults facing various difficulties: complex trauma, dissociation, personality disorders, anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, low self-esteem, grief & loss, relationship issues, difficult family dynamics, health challenges (e.g., chronic illness & pain), work & school stress—find healthy ways to cope in the immediate present & make positive and lasting change.

My clinical work spans more than 15 years at Women's College Hospital, the Centre for Addiction & Mental Health, and in private practice. I have extensive experience incorporating elements of evidence based treatments (e.g., eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), internal family systems (IFS), cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, relational therapy to name a few) to help meet your unique needs & goals.

My practice is understanding, compassionate, and warm. I aim to provide expert and thoughtful guidance & insight, while empowering you to take meaningful steps towards greater self-worth, present-mindedness, healthier & deeper relationships, resiliency to navigate change, and conscious living—so you can grow and flourish during and beyond therapy.

More Info About My Practice

As an integrative therapist I draw from several evidence-based treatment approaches to meet your unique characteristics, preferences, needs and goals. I know one treatment doesn’t work for all individuals, problems, and contexts. Also, I look at the ‘whole’ person. This means I seek to promote wellness in all areas of life - physical, mental, emotional, behavioral, social, and spiritual, while attempting to help you understand and address how issues in one aspect can lead to concerns in other areas. In short, ‘Integrative Psychotherapy’ allows me to be flexible, inclusive, and holistic.

My practice is strength based, trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, LBGTQ+ supportive, and anti-oppressive.
