I have been in private practice at the Spadina Therapy Centre for over 10 years. My work life began as a teacher, and I then enjoyed a long career in advertising and marketing. I decided to follow my passion for understanding how we are shaped and bent out of shape by our environments, and what motivates our responses in relationship to others and especially to ourselves.

I believe that while it is important to have cognitive understanding of our issues, it is a must to work with the body as well in order to fully clear trauma from the cells. My practice with individuals is integrated, using talk therapy and body work, which could include creative elements of art therapy and dream work.

My work with couples is based on the Relational Life Therapy of Terry Real, whose latest book, "The New Rules of Marriage", is revolutionizing the way couples gain understanding of how to live relationally. I find this approach changes lives and helps couples rekindle the feelings that brought them together in the first place and make them even better.

In addition to my practice, I am also teaching first year students training to become psychotherapists at the Integral Healing Centre.
