Therapy, Assessment, and Testing for Children & Adults

Welcome to my practice. I am a Toronto-based therapist who welcomes adults, adolescents and children. I provide therapy and mental health assessments. My areas of interest and expertise include resolving past emotional injuries and traumas including attachment deficits, reducing anxiety, depression and shame, stress management, and boosting self-esteem. I especially enjoy working with adolescent girls, couples, and parents, helping people to develop positive, fulfilling relationships.

As an integrative therapist, I utilize several different approaches to therapy that I tailor to fit your personality, presenting issues, and your therapy goals. When working with children, adolescents, and adults I strive to create a safe and empathic environment where you can express your emotions, thoughts, and ideas.

For adults, therapy offers the provision of support, guidance and exploration to foster positive, lasting change. This is most typically accomplished through examining relational and behavioral patterns that interfere with satisfaction and success in one's life. We will work together to help you change old ways of being into new possibilities. Together, we will learn about your needs, desires, and feelings so you can create positive changes in your life. This can help you achieve more intimacy, compassion, and understanding with yourself and those who are important to you.

I also specialize in treating children, adolescents, and teenagers. My approach involves looking at the whole child, the interpersonal environment and the interaction between the two. I believe a key function of therapy is to help children increase mastery and the capacity for resilience by tapping into their innate strength and internal resources. You may be concerned tyour child, adolescent or teenager has a learning disability and want an assessment to clarify what your child's challenges might be.
