I provide therapy that draws from traditions of psychoanalytic/dynamic and existential psychotherapy. Our sessions together will explore the questions, difficulties, and significant experiences that you encounter in life—in your relationships, at work, or in moments when no one else is watching—with the aim of providing insight and fostering personal growth. Whether you’re in the midst of a painful crisis now or just looking for some insights into your unique responses to life, therapy can be a valuable tool. The therapeutic modalities that I work with may help reduce distress, improve self-awareness, provide a rejuvenated sense of purpose, enable fuller self-expression, and/or enhance capacity to engage in valued relationships. Therapy can empower us to face our current suffering and to recognize the ways that we’ve learned to cope with past difficulties. This knowledge, in turn, allows us to forge new paths to a freer and more meaningful future.
I completed an MEd in Counselling Psychology at the University of Toronto and am now undertaking doctoral studies in the field. As part of my ongoing training, I practice under the supervision of an experienced psychotherapist. My current supervisor is Elizabeth Harvey, RP.
A bit more about me: Prior to my graduate studies in Counselling Psychology, I completed a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and a Master of Arts in English. Before beginning my therapy practice, I worked, among other things, as an actor, personal/administrative assistant, musician, server/bartender, tutor, and psychology researcher. I maintain a great love for the arts, and I’m always happy to include clients’ creative practices in our work together. I hope to have the pleasure and privilege of getting to know you.
