I have experienced psychotherapy from both sides – I have been a client and I am a psychotherapist. I have experienced psychotherapy individually and in groups. I have been taught and I have been a teacher. In private practice since 1998, I draw on all of these experiences when I work with my clients. From 1999 to 2011, I co-led a number of weekly psychotherapy groups with Dr. Julie Righter. I also work with clients by phone or via Skype.

I have an Honours Bachelor of Arts from The University of Western Ontario. I am a Graduate (1999) and a Post-Graduate (2004) of the training programs of the Gestalt Institute of Toronto.

Now I am regularly involved in further training and am currently receiving supervision from a Clinical Psychologist.
I am a Faculty member at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto where I teach and train students and supervise. I am also member of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy and Member of College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
