Training

Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy
The world keeps turning, so why do we feel stuck? I know from experience that repeating the same patterns eventually stops working. Having "me-time" with a trained professional can revive a sense of longed-for growth, even out of the deepest holes we find ourselves in. It is hard, but asking for help when out of constructive options can be a major turning point. The therapy relationship you and I develop can help shift patterns of relating with yourself and the world around you.
If you're feeling confused, down, stuck, in pain, or otherwise, I provide space free of judgement for you to express feelings as they come up. We will work together to make sense of things. I strive to listen for the complexity of the intersections of your identities (gender, race, class, etc.): how you relate to them, and how they shape your experience.
If my profile speaks to you, please do not hesitate to reach out and book an initial session. I recognize that the cost of psychotherapy can be a major barrier - it was for me when I started. If my cost is out of your range, please inquire about sliding scale spots. I look forward to listening to you and offering my service.
