My Approach to Helping

IMPORTANT NOTE: DURING THE COVID 19 CRISIS I AM AVAILABLE TO HELP YOU ONLINE. I work with individuals, couples, parents and families in distress. Whether you're struggling with isolation, anxiety, upset, conflict, purpose, being stuck or a difficult life transition, all life's ups and downs are indicators that you or your life wants to shift. You want to be you, a unique, special person with your own individual goals and dreams. As an expert in helping people in "distress" I'll provide hands-on support to help you get there. I began Wayfinders Psychotherapy Services in Toronto's Beaches area in 1990.

Unlike most practices, with only pay as you go sessions, I offer an additional option if you choose, to pay one flat monthly rate that gives you ALL of the session, phone, email support, or Skype sessions you need for one affordable monthly price. My being 'on call' often helps to heal your issues faster.

My work is about supporting others with an approach that uses a style similar to Positive Psychology to build your happiness and which utilizes your natural and individual strengths. This can be done through face to face or ONLINE SESSIONS, workshops or group work. I aim to help you have the life you so richly deserve. Your consultation is free.
