about

biography

I am a Clinical Psychologist with extensive clinical training and 15+ years of experience in psychological assessment and individual psychotherapy with adult clients. I also offer life coaching and facilitation of psychological group retreats. One of my greatest interests, and an area of particular expertise, is in working with individuals around their self-esteem and relationship with self.

I completed my Ph.D. graduate studies at York University and received additional clinical training, in both inpatient and outpatient settings, at the former Queen Street Mental Health Centre and Clarke Institute of Psychiatry (now the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health), as well as Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. In my practice, I have worked with individuals from all walks of life (e.g., students, professionals). I have also treated a large number of law enforcement personnel and their families for trauma and other mental health concerns. In addition to my private practice, I work part-time at Saint Michael’s Hospital in a research unit devoted to the study of individuals living with HIV.

I am a Registered Member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario. I also have professional affiliations with the Ontario Psychological Association and Canadian Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
