My approach to psychotherapy is “eclectic”. This approach recognizes that no single type of psychotherapy is comprehensive enough to address the complexities and predicaments of human existence. As a therapist, I strive to integrate different counselling theories and therapeutic interventions. I believe that different people, at different life stages, and facing various challenges, can be helped by different approaches to psychotherapy. At different times, with various clients, I might draw my approaches from any of the following schools of psychotherapy: Cognitive-Behavioural (CBT), Dialectical-Behavioural (DBT), Emotion Focused (EFT), Solution-Focused, Psychodynamic-Relational.
I have 16 years of experience in the mental health care field. I hold Master's Degree in Counselling Psychology from University of Toronto and completed 1500 hours of supervised post-graduate training in psychotherapy. I also possess additional specialty training in CBT, DBT and EFT.

What to expect

I believe that the relationship between the therapist and the client is an important aspect of psychotherapy. In order to facilitate change and healing, I engage in a warm, empathic and genuine dialogue. This dialogue might include several components.
I will inquire about your goals, dreams, hopes and aspirations. I primarily work in the here and now and often promote action-oriented interventions. It does not mean that I am not interested in your past; I will inquire about your past in order to better understand your current difficulties and focus on the current events and ways of coping. Then, we will work together at achieving your goals and aspirations and finding ways to improve your quality of life.
I am experienced at working with a range of issues such as
