Careful listening, empathy, feedback from a different perspective, calmness and gentle humour: the essential elements that you are offered in a therapeutic relationship with me. Whether it is to relieve the burden of difficult and painful life experiences or to reap the benefits of deeper self-understanding, in general, I will ensure that you are supported in a balanced way that honours your worldview, your personal resources and your history.

My therapeutic approach, which blends relational, psychodynamic and existential psychotherapy influences, can help you to better understand how your past and present relationships shape your emotional experience of life and your sense of who you are in the world. Together, we will work to generate a greater sense of connection, self-awareness and meaning in your life. I very much understand the need to self-reflect, sort things through and gain strength and support at times of loss, transition and ‘stuckness'.

I am a Faculty Member of the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy (TIRP) and I have more than 20 years of experience in counselling and psychotherapy and work with a diverse range of clients from different personal backgrounds, professions and life circumstances. I find great meaning in helping people make thorough sense of things in their lives. Talking helps and talking heals – let's talk.
