Hello and welcome! I’m a Registered Psychotherapist in midtown Toronto, currently working online. My specialties include: Relationship Issues, Life Transitions, Trauma (Brainspotting), and Addiction.
My sensibilities as a therapist are drawn from deep lived experience and a previous career in communications that all come together in my approach. Clients tell me I am easy to talk to.
I help individuals create healthier, more fulfilling relationships – starting with the one they have with themselves.
10 years ago, my teenage son took his first steps to recover from a mental health and addiction crisis. To find support for him, I consulted doctors, therapists, addiction counsellors and treatment centres. Holding hands with my family, we did all we could to surround our son on his journey. Together, we crawled slowly from darkness into the light. I was inspired to change careers and return to my earlier roots of helping people. The whole experience was an education and then, in 2014, I went back to school
I trained in spiritual psychotherapy and work with aligning mind, body and spirit, depending on the client. Other training includes managing anxiety and emotional regulation, family systems, and interpersonal relationships. I am an experienced addiction counsellor and certified trauma professional (CCTP), working with brainspotting.
