Thank you for visiting my site. In my work with individuals and couples, I create a safe space that is validating, identity-affirming, and non-judgmental. I practice relational/intersubjective therapy, and I also trained in emotionally focused therapy (EFT) for couples.
Relational therapy can be an effective tool when grappling with: anxiety, care taking/giving tendencies, narcissistic and neglectful parenting, trauma, childhood and attachment issues (parent/child relationships), isolation, authenticity, divorce/separation, male emotionality and masculinity, meaninglessness, depression, shame, intergenerational trauma, identity, and existential angst. My practice is grounded in mindfulness and empathy and is informed by an attachment perspective. Additionally, my approach considers the wider social, political and economic context of your relational world.
In our sessions, we will work collaboratively to better understand your subjective world and the impact of your history on your relationships, emotional well-being, and sense of self. Working collaboratively means that our sessions will be non-hierarchical and together we will actively and genuinely engage with your experiences so that you feel heard and understood.
Therapy can be part of a regular routine of wellbeing, and perhaps old ways of managing difficulties and relationship challenges in your life are no longer effective and you are looking for new ways to move forward from a stuck place. Help and support can be sought at any time, not only when in distress.
I studied at the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy (TIRP), a rigorous psychotherapy training program recognized by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), and I am also a member of The Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapists (CAPT). I work with individuals and couples.
I am in a supervised practice.
