I am a therapist with over a decade of experience working with individuals, couples, families and children. My work with a Toronto based non-profit agency has given me the opportunity to work with people from various backgrounds, cultures and sexual orientations. I have many years of experience helping individuals with issues such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, stress, work conflict, grief, separation, relationship issues, extended family and parenting. I work with clients to make sense of their feelings, develop new ideas for coping, and feel more encouraged and empowered. I have successfully helped numerous clients return to work after being away due to stress and mental health related issues.
I also have a strong passion for working with couples who are experiencing conflict, loss of connection or overcoming an affair. Many of the couples I have met often feel stuck and discouraged in their relationships. I work with couples to help them break the cycle of conflict, repair the trust and rebuild their connection.
For others, separation has been the step they need to resolve the conflict or give them a chance to find happiness. I have helped many people adjust to separation, grieve the loss of their relationship and work toward new beginnings. My experience counselling individuals, leading groups and running seminars has given me an opportunity to help parents manage conflict within their co-parenting relationships and help their children adjust to separation.
I integrate client-centered therapy with other modalities including ACT- Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Narrative, Gottman Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Solution-Focused therapy.
I am always enhancing my knowledge and experience through continuing education at workshops, conferences and reading. I also participate in clinical supervision and peer supervision to collaborate and continue to learn from others.
