About Me

I am a Toronto-based social worker/psychotherapist with over ten years of experience working with individuals, couples and families in a variety of treatment settings.

I work with clients to help them to make lasting changes in whatever area of their lives they are feeling stuck in and to help them to feel their best. I use a holistic approach, drawing upon ancient Eastern wisdom that views health through both the body and the mind, and ensuring that all techniques have been well tested to demonstrate that they actually work to make people feel better. My education and experience has taught me that we can overcome our suffering with the right support.
