If you are suffering in your primary relationship or want something better out of your life – if you feel held back by anxiety, depression, or addiction; trapped in a maladaptive cycle; or unable to be content at work – then you may benefit from therapy. Couples' therapy focuses on locating and dealing with the underlying issues that are making a secure connection to your partner impossible. Individual psychotherapy involves exploring your emotions, thoughts, and behaviours and how they are impacting your view of life and influencing your choices right now.

Before completing my studies at the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy, I attained a Ph.D. in English literature at the University of Toronto and taught various courses there. For me the shift into practicing psychotherapy was a natural extension of my lifelong interest in how human beings use words and stories to make sense of our experience. To tell the story of one’s own life and be listened to is often the beginning of seeing and experiencing that life differently. My therapeutic approach is direct and engaged, and influenced by my own experience as a client as well as by my training in methods like EFT (Emotion-Focused Therapy).
