I have a Master's degree in Counselling Psychology from Boston College, and have advanced training in several therapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioural and Brief Solution Focused Therapy.
In addition to my experience in private practice, I have also worked in agency, corporate and school settings.
I am registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and am a professional member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists (OACCPP).
I am a firm believer in the "real relationship" which means that I am not a blank screen but rather the treatment is very much interactive and collaborative.
Often, no single treatment technique is sufficient in helping clients achieve both the intellectual insight and emotional understanding needed for lasting change to occur. Among the therapeutic techniques I offer, alone or in combination, are relational psychotherapy, brief solution focused models, motivational counselling and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Treatment goals are determined through conversation with the client and are adjusted based on the changing client needs.
