I'm a Registered Psychotherapist with the Ontario College of Psycotherapy. I believe that your choice of therapist is a very personal and important decision, and if I'm not the therapist for you, I will help refer you to someone who is. In order to determine whether we are a fit, for those without insurance, initial individual consultations are free. My services are covered by most extended health benefits (please check for Clinical Psychology or Psychotherapy in your schedule of benefits) and I work with clients to ensure that they can get the support they need taking financial considerations into account. 

I hold a Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology and am a candidate at the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts. I am a trained Emotionally Focused Couples Counsellor with the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). I am a registered member of the Canadian Association of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I bring over a decade of experience in business and the arts to support my work with clients, and believe strongly in the importance for all psychotherapists to have undergone their own psychotherapeutic treatment and to have ongoing supervision. This is a pre-requisite of any training program for therapists to work psychodynamically with their clients. 

I offer two convenient locations across Toronto and a flexible schedule with evening and weekend appointments (Please see my website for location information). I also offer phone and Skype counselling in the event that geography is an obstacle or you are travelling and require support. 

When choosing a couples counsellor, ensure that at least half of their practice is devoted to couples therapy and that they have specific training in this area. A lot of therapists and counsellors take on couples in their practice without any formal training, and it is important to have a particular focus on this area. I'd be happy to answer any questions about this. 

I understood early on that to help my clients, I needed to take my own personal and professional risks, so that I could lead by example and support those I work with with integrity. This is a principle philosophy to both my work as a therapist and also the foundation for the oldest and most longstanding therapeutic traditions.  

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns.
