in-person, online & telephone sessions
no obligation free 10 min. initial phone consultation
I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process. I believe that you, as a client, are the expert in your own experience and I will work with you to gain insight and clarity, uncover patterns, develop new perspectives, heal from past experiences and learn strategies to manage ongoing challenges. Therapy can help you find balance and live more authentically, with greater self-trust and self-confidence.
My clients come to therapy for many different reasons. Perhaps you're down, stressed or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, grieving a loss, want to find healing from past experiences, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs, I am here to offer support in ways that are uniquely tailored to you and your goals.
I bring years of experience to clients and training and expertise in a range of systems of change and therapeutic approaches. All my work is founded on anti-racism, anti-oppression and trauma-informed principles.
I have the tools and professional experience to help you get back on track - or to find your new path.
Everyone with a desire for change, healing or transformation is welcome.
WHO ARE MY THERAPY CLIENTS?
People like you and me! You don't need a referral.
Everyone has different experiences, concerns and goals for therapy and I'll work with you to identify goals and create a custom therapy plan to support you.
There is no silly reason to come to therapy and you don't need to have any diagnosed issue. Sometimes we all need a little support. In fact, it's a sign of wisdom to know when to ask for help!
VETERANS, RCMP & CANADIAN ARMED FORCES PERSONNEL
As a registered Mental Health Professional with Medavie Blue Cross I work with active and veteran RCMP and Armed Forces personnel. I am experienced helping both veterans and acting personnel with operational stress injuries including anxiety, depression and PTSD. Loneliness and isolation, relationship difficulties and other concerns may compound your distress.
You don't need to handle this alone. I am here to help. Direct billing is available.
I provide in-person and online psychotherapy to refugees, paid directly by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. All refugee claimants are welcome to contact me. You will need a referral note for psychotherapy from a physician or nurse practitioner.
FREE 10 MINUTE CONSULTATION
Before you book your first session, feel free to request a free, no-obligation 10 minute phone consultation. This is an opportunity to connect with me and ask any questions you may have before booking an appointment.
ONLINE & TELEPHONE APPOINTMENTS
I offer the flexibility of remote (online & telephone) appointments for clients for a variety of reasons. I work with some clients only remotely and some clients do both remote and in-person sessions. The choice is yours.
My Toronto location is conveniently located in Midtown Toronto, not far from Yonge & Eglinton (Eglinton subway - line 1). The Eglinton West bus 32 stops outside and street parking is available (there is no construction on this stretch of Eglinton Ave.) Please note, unfortunately, there is no wheelchair accessibility in this older building.
My Stratford office in The Space WIthin is conveniently located in the heart of the city in market square. Public transport and parking are available - plus lots of coffee shops! Unfortunately, there is no wheelchair accessibility as the office is located on the second floor of an older building.
