A sturdy warmth, a sharp mind, excellent therapeutic skills and a sense of humour.

Psychotherapy

I have been in Private Practise as a psychotherapist since 1994 doing what I can to be helpful to a wide range of different people grappling with difficulties in their lives.
I hope I always go the extra mile for my clients!
I work with adults, individuals and couples and older teens (15+).

People come to see me for help with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Shame
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Relationship troubles (partners, parents, children, friends)
  • Sexual Orientation worries
  • Gender Identity concerns
  • LGBT Counseling
  • Transgender Counseling
  • Support in raising “Gender Independent” children

Insurance
Unfortunately OHIP does not currently cover the costs of psychotherapy. Some Benefits packages cover only an EAP counsellor or a Clinical Psychologist but many packages, including some for University and College students, do cover me as a “Registered Psychotherapist” (CRPO #001180). with a Master’s degree in Counselling Psych.

Reduced Fee
I do see clients pro bono but I am afraid there is always a long wait list.

Payment
I accept etransfer or cash for payment. Unless we have made another arrangement, payment is due before each session.

Cancellation Policy
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.

My practice is located near Queen St East and Woodbine Ave.
