I am a Registered Psychotherapist in downtown Toronto. I work with adults who may be dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, relationship issues, gender and sexual identity (gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans). I have background in music, and the study of philosophy informs all of my work.

In every life there comes a time when it's clear some changes need to be made. Or something happens that throws all the ways we're used to doing things up in the air and we don't know what to do. Or we realize that something about our relationship is really not working and we can't clearly say why. Psychotherapy can help you through these challenges so you can come to a clearer understanding of who you are, what you've done, what you want and what it all means.

You might feel depressed, or anxious or alone. You might find yourself questioning the way you are living your life, the ways you relate to loved ones, the ways you express your sexuality or your creativity, or even questioning the meaning of life. You may have lived through trauma, divorce, neglect, abuse and psychotherapy can be a good way to begin to heal.

It might seem reasonable that thinking about yourself and your life on your own could solve the problem, whatever it is. But speaking aloud to someone, in a caring and confidential setting, makes all the difference. We are relational creatures after all and we understand ourselves in the context of the people in our lives. If you had a difficult relationship with a parent, that difficulty can show up in our adult life. If you were isolated or traumatized as a child, then relationships as an adult will reflect that somehow. Psychodynamic psychotherapy assumes that there are themes that show up in our lives and relationships over and over again in ways we're not always aware of and this form of psychotherapy tries to bring these patterns into awareness so we can begin to change them.

The work I do comes from many sources: from psychodynamic psychotherapy theory, from existential philosophy, the arts and music. Psychotherapy is confidential - anything you say to me in my office will never leave my office. You can see the Code of Ethics I am bound by with the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy.

As of April 1, 2015 I am a Registered Psychotherapist, regulated by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
