I work with adults in individual psychotherapy.
I have experience in the following areas: depression and anxiety; emotional, physical and sexual abuse; trauma (PTSD), eating and body image issues; stress and burnout; bereavement/grief; sexuality; health issues; life transitions; relationship issues; general self-esteem concerns. I've worked as a university counsellor (McGill University), as a counsellor at the Edmonton Sexual Assault Centre, and in private practice.
My approach is eclectic, depending on the needs of the person, and may include cognitive therapy, psychodynamic or insight oriented therapy, emotion-focussed and emotion regulation therapy; mindfulness meditation and mindfulness strategies.

Psychologists and psychological associates practicing in Ontario are "registered to practice at the same level of competence" (quoted from the College of Psychologists' website). All have studied psychology in an academic setting, most to the PhD level; others have opted for a Masters degree and a lengthy apprenticeship instead. Some counsel couples, families and children. They belong to a college that maintains standards of training, practice, confidentiality, and treatment of clients or patients. Clinical psychologists do psychotherapy. Like all reputable therapists, they follow strict rules about protecting privacy.
