I'm a psychotherapist in the Toronto area, specializing in relationships, crisis counselling, depression, anxiety, anger management and coaching.
In addition to a Masters Degree, I am also a psychotherapy graduate of the Transformational Arts College in Toronto. I have training in many modes of psychotherapy but my emphasis is on EFT and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I have an advanced certificate in EFT and I am listed as such on the website run by the founder of EFT, Gary Craig (see www.emofree.com).
I am a Certified Member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists, as well as a clinical member of the Ontario Society of Psychotherapists (see http://www.psychotherapyontario.com/clinical.html) which requires, in addition to a graduate degree from a recognized university, 3,000 hours of clinical experience and demonstrated learning in at least four (4) of the following six (6) areas as they relate to psychotherapy:
I work with clients suffering from depression, anxiety and panic attacks; addictions; relationship problems (including those in the gay/lesbian community); loneliness; phobias and fears; and the emotional aspects of ailments such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
I look at my clients holistically, that is, taking into consideration all aspects of their lives including their physical health. There are many studies which show spiritual and nutritional factors directly bear on our mental health. I often include life coaching with the therapy, to help people not only feel better about themselves but then to move forward and actually realize their goals, whether that's a new relationship, a more balanced life or job success.
I LOVE this work, watching my clients discover the feeling of freedom and joy that comes with letting go of old hurts and pains and finding new ways of interacting with the world. Please contact me at email@example.com
