About Me

Expert Toronto Psychotherapist and Counselor

My professional experience as a Toronto Psychotherapist in Clinical Social Work Practice includes approximately 1200 counselling hours per year for over a decade since 2002 with an additional 10 years of prior counselling of individuals, couples, families and groups in a broad range of clinical settings since 1990. I have worked in adolescent and adult psychiatry, addiction and recovery agencies, hospitals and family centres as well as worked as a Clinical Supervisor in a range of practice settings. I also draw on my specialized training in the areas of trauma, addiction, mental health and marriage/couples counselling.
