Hello and welcome to my site. I am a Registered Psychotherapist and a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I hope you find this page informative and if you have any questions please feel free to email me.
It is not unusual to struggle along the path of life. Our work lives are full of stress and relationships can be difficult. Perhaps something has come up that has thrown you for a loop, or you keep experiencing difficulties in your relationships either at work or in your personal life. If this is true for you then therapy can be very beneficial.
Therapy is a powerful process that has helped many people work through difficulties with;
- career issues
- eating disorders
- self-esteem issues
It is a good place to take the time to explore, feel, and understand how you are living your life.
As a psychotherapist, I will help you strive towards greater personal understanding, emotional intelligence, and change. We will work with your thoughts, emotions, dreams and unconscious material. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a process that helps people work through issues and emotions. Our internal world is dynamic, ever changing, and wants to be revealed. Our external reality creates relationship dynamics that define how we feel and act with others.
In therapy with couples, I use an innovative approach based on the latest research relating to emotionally focused therapy.
In my own life I have experienced ups and downs along the way that I believe enrich my ability to be an effective therapist. My life path has been both exciting and challenging. I have listed under my photo the areas I mostly work with as anxiety, depression, relationship, couples, career issues and life transitions.
My professional background includes over twenty years experience working in a variety of roles such as; an executive, a management consultant, a coach, and a trainer. I have worked in both private and public sector companies.
Everyone is a unique individual. As a consultant, coach and psychotherapist, I have worked with people that occupy different roles from students to top executives, as well as different careers, such as; artists, musicians, professionals, home makers, and business owners.
We all have emotional issues that when looked at in therapy can help us through the day and in our relationships.
I look forward to meeting you. Please send me an email to set up a free consultation.
My office is at The Pape Therapy Centre centrally located at Pape and Danforth on the subway line : here's my map. I work both in person and on the telephone.
