Working with a student psychotherapist is mutually beneficial and safe. Clients benefit from affordable rates and the psychotherapist student benefits from real-world experience and supervision. Students must be supervised by a qualified psychotherapist while working towards registration with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
Clients seeking therapy are usually in pain, struggling emotionally and have realized they can't move forward alone. My goal in therapy is to help you live more fully by, not only, identifying challenges but also exploring your inner strengths. This positive approach helps define both the clear paths and obstacles within life. The objective is an increased awareness of patterns that limit our feelings of connection with ourselves, our partners and our families. Together we will explore thoughts, behaviours, emotions and beliefs as they arise within supportive and constructive therapy sessions.
I'm a veteran professional of the family asset management/financial industry - a sector where complex financial issues are often overshadowed by family conflict. This life experience led to a desire to work with families, couples and individuals on a more personal level and, combined with my training, allows me to bring compassion, patience and an unending curiosity to each session. I am dedicated to ensuring you feel you are heard and understood so we can co-create the right path to move forward to the place you want to be in your life.
If you're looking for a safe, non-judgmental space to share, explore difficult issues and face the challenges present in your life, please reach out for a complimentary 15 minute consultation to see if we are a good fit to work together. Whether you are looking for couples therapy, individual therapy or family therapy, my collaborative approach may be what you need to get “unstuck”.
