I completed my Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts, and Doctoral Degrees in Clinical Psychology at York University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I am a registered member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO) with competencies in the areas of Clinical and Rehabilitation Psychology. I am also a member of the Ontario Psychological Association (OPA). I have several years of experience using evidence-based therapeutic approaches in the provision of individual psychotherapy to adult clients. More specifically, I have extensive experience providing Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for the treatment of Mood and Anxiety Disorders and have a special interest in the assessment and treatment of Chronic Insomnia (CBT-I). Over the course of my career, I have trained, practiced, and held research positions at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), the Hospital for Sick Children, North York General Hospital, and the Toronto General Hospital/University Health Network (UHN). In addition to my private practice, I have also worked at Cleveland Clinic Canada, providing psychological assessment and treatment services in the Executive Health Program.
I am an intuitive and skilled psychotherapist with over 10-years of clinical experience in assessment and psychotherapy. In my therapy work, I offer a safe and supportive environment for the exploration of oneself and the personal struggles that have brought you to therapy. I have extensive training in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and integrate elements of Psychodynamic, Mindfulness, Narrative, Solution-Focused, Experiential, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) in my approach to treatment. I also have trained in Behavioural Sleep Medicine and CBT for Insomnia (CBT-I). I bring a warm, empathic, and gentle compassion to therapy and will work collaboratively with you to address your areas of concern by setting achievable goals and implementing strategies that promote acceptance, healing, resilience, and overall well-being. I believe that personal growth and healing can be found in being more kind, loving and accepting with ourselves.
