My Counselling Philosophy

The guidelines that define my professional work are firstly to establish a therapeutic relationship that could allow the person to feel safe and understood. Secondly, I facilitate reflection and discovery of new meanings on those significant issues in the client’s present and past life. Those issues could be specific, such as feeling concerned about relationships, self-esteem, stress, or they could be unspecific, such as feeling emotional, irritable, or unfulfilled. Thirdly, my approach is tailored by the person’s needs and can encompass diverse strategies and techniques. In summary in my 17-year professional practice I get to see how people make of psychotherapy an opportunity to live a more fulfilling life and become a better person.

En mí práctica de psicoterapia que lleva 17 años, considero que todo tipo de situaciones y sentimientos pueden llevar a una persona a buscar ayuda profesional. Ciertamente, la posibilidad de acceder a ayuda psicoterapéutica permite alcanzar un mayor conocimiento de uno mismo, y en consecuencia bienestar emocional, espiritual y plenitud.


I do regular consultation with my supervisor for the ongoing development of my professional and ethical expertise and to discuss client concerns in confidential manner. The receipt you will receive will be in my name as a Registered Psychotherapist in the province of Ontario, which is acceptable by most insurance companies (e.g. Sunlife). It is your responsibility to determine whether my receipt is acceptable for your workplace benefits and insurance.

The regular fee for counselling is $170 (plus HST).
