I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in Toronto, in private practice for nearly fifteen years. I did my psychoanalytic training at the Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis (TICP). I am a faculty member of both the TICP and the Institute for the Advancement of Self Psychology, where I am also a member of the Executive and co-chair of the curriculum committee.
I am also a professor at Trinity College, in the University of Toronto, where I teach religion, ethics, psychoanalysis and critical theory to both undergraduate and graduate students. My interest in psychoanalysis, religion, and spirituality informs my clinical practice.
My therapeutic work takes an in-depth, psychodynamic approach to a wide array of problematic and troubling issues faced by individuals in their relationships, their work, and what might be described as their efforts to explore their identity, desires, hopes and aspirations for a more satisfying and stable life-experience.Much of my work is with people who are suffering from depression and the soul-crippling effects of childhood and/or adolescent trauma.
