Are you wondering if Counselling, Psychology or Psychotherapy (all known as therapy; how confusing is that?!) can help you?
Therapy can help you to solve problems, make decisions, process challenging emotions, develop better ways of coping with stressful situations and shift your ideas about yourself, others and the world in enlightening ways.
Are you Confused? Frustrated? Lonely? Stuck? Devastated? Exhausted? Numb? Scared? Anxious? Angry? Resentful? Worried? Overwhelmed? Depressed? Uncertain? Heartbroken? Still Uncertain? Still Stuck?
I often hear clients say that their problems aren’t significant enough to require therapy. The majority of people that I see are high functioning, but they want to be happier, more fulfilled and just generally feel better about themselves. There’s nothing wrong with that. Your problems don’t have to be huge. First world problems are, well… still problems. If you’re suffering even just a bit (or a lot), therapy can enhance your life and help you feel better.

Improve Communication, Decrease Conflict, Strengthen Relationships, Increase Trust, Gain Clarity, Stop Ineffective Patterns of Behaviour, Reignite Passion, Find Love, Change Your Relationship Without Changing Your Partner, Build Self-Esteem and Confidence or Enjoy A Balanced Lifestyle?

I’m definitely not what’s most important here. You are! Therapy is all about you becoming the best version of yourself. That being said, if you’d like to know more about me, here’s a snapshot:
I’m a Registered Psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario, an Individual Therapist, Couples Counsellor & Marriage Therapist, a Published Author and a guest Relationship Expert on radio and television with a counselling, psychology and psychotherapy private practice in midtown Toronto at Yonge and Eglinton.
My media credentials include appearances as an expert counsellor and guest psychotherapist on That Channel’s
Because I’m a Registered Psychologist, the cost for counselling, psychotherapy and psychological services will often be reimbursed in whole or in part by your extended health benefits and workplace insurance requiring clients be seen by a Registered Psychologist. Please check your policy to see what coverage you have.
I’m a member of the Ontario Psychological Association with a registration certificate from the College of Psychologists of Ontario as a Psychologist authorized to practice in the areas of Counselling Psychology and Clinical Psychology with adults and couples. I also hold an M.A. Counselling Psychology (Adler School of Professional Psychology), an Honours B.A. Psychology (York University) and a B.Sc. Business (University of Phoenix).
I have an eclectic and integrated approach to counselling, psychological services and psychotherapy. This means that I use a unique blend of complimentary therapies so that our sessions are best suited to your individual needs. Some of those therapies that I may draw on include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), client-centred psychotherapy, Adlerian counselling, emotion-focused therapy (EFT) and brief solution-focused therapy. Types of therapy that I offer include relationship counselling, perfectionism therapy, life transition counselling, couples therapy, assertiveness counselling, marriage psychotherapy, confidence counselling, stress management counselling, depression therapy, anxiety counselling, communication skills counselling, conflict resolution skills psychotherapy, self-esteem counselling, and work/life balance counselling. As mentioned previously the use of the words therapy, psychotherapy, psychology and counselling are largely interchangeable.
I like working with both individuals and couples to achieve a sense of overall fulfillment. Warm and encouraging support is a prominent aspect of the work I do and I enjoy working collaboratively with clients to rediscover their confidence, find life balance, enhance their relationships and attain more happiness in all aspects of their lives. This is rewarding and meaningful work and I am honoured to have the opportunity to allowed into the lives of my clients in such important and sacred ways.
As a mother, therapist and former director of a graduate-level private school to name just a few of my many roles, I understand the challenges facing career-committed professionals, family-oriented individuals and those seeking change for personal development and success.
I live in midtown Toronto with my family. When I’m not practicing counselling, psychology and psychotherapy I spend my leisure time enjoying yoga, painting, photography, music, snowboarding, surfing, golfing, cooking, travelling, reading and exploring the countryside both in and out of the city.
