I am here to listen to your stories in a safe space, with a non-judgmental, compassionate and curious mind. I aim to point out your hopes, strengths and the things you may not be able to see.
I weave together my experience in employment counselling and therapy to help you explore the possibilities in your life and work.
I take an integrative approach to therapy, drawing upon various therapeutic modalities. These modalities include Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy.
I completed my Master’s degree in Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy from the University of Toronto, Emmanuel College, and I have a diploma in Buddhist Mindfulness and Mental Health.
As a psychotherapist, my aim is to offer a safe, empathetic, and non-judgmental space to work through any issues and difficulties that may be troubling you. My approach is client-centred and integrative, drawing upon theories and techniques from a range of modalities, as they relate to your own distinct therapeutic goals and process. Such modalities include psychodynamic therapy, emotionally focused therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy, and dialectical behaviour therapy, among others.
My hope is that our work together will bring about personal insight and awareness, the shedding of old defences and behaviour patterns that no longer serve you, improved interpersonal relationships, new ways of engaging with your thoughts and emotions, and coping with life’s challenges. It is my belief that the aim of psychotherapy is not to “fix”, but to help remove the obstacles to change and growth.
I hold a Master of Arts with a concentration in Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy from Wilfrid Laurier University. I can provide therapy in both English and Greek.

Clients who find my services effective are typically working on something important in their lives or careers, and they want someone who can track with them compassionately while challenging any unhelpful or limiting perspectives and ideas. Together, we process trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, stress, anger, relationship struggles, workplace issues and career development. I see individuals and couples, and use a combination of approaches including attachment-based theories, cognitive-behavioural techniques, psychodrama, mindfulness and positive psychology.
Before becoming a psychotherapist, I worked at some of Canada’s largest companies, leading teams focused on employee training and leadership development. Helping people work better (and live better), while navigating the reality of modern workplaces is an enduring passion.
Growing the Blossom Psychotherapy practice and partnering with other therapists in this work is a distinct pleasure in this phase of my life and career.
