I look forward to meeting you and working together. Here's a bit about me...
I've been employed in the mental health and addictions field in Toronto for over 30 years. I've worked with people on issues such as depression and anxiety, self esteem, relationship struggles, parent-child, family issues, trauma, addiction, and spiritual/faith crisis. I work with a lot of folks from the LGBTQ community, including many trans identified folks, and those coming out or struggling with identity issues.
My practice draws on a variety of approaches including: CBT, mindfulness, somatic / sensorimotor psychotherapy, energy work, and psychodynamic therapy. I've completed specialized training in the areas of trauma, mental health, gender and sexual identity, and spirituality. I have additional training in craniosacral techniques.
I work both short and long term with folks, depending on what your needs are. I can provide distance counselling by video or phone.
I offer a free phone consultation with those interested in working together so you can see if I'd be a good fit for what you're needing.
