My personal approach to therapy draws on a delicate balance of formal knowledge, personal experience, and intuition. I apply a creative and integrative approach that ranges from the experiential to the narrative, observing systems and attachment styles that inform dynamics occurring in everyday life, at work, in couple relationships and in the family. I use a client-centered approach that emphasizes safety and collaboration while providing strong leadership and a range of exploration opportunities tailored to the individual, couple, family or group.

I am under the consultation / supervision of Dr. Martin Rovers, (mrovers@rogers.com) Ontario Registered Psychologist, for the ongoing development of my professional and ethical learning and for psychological services to my clients. I consult with Dr. Rovers regarding my clients on a regular basis. The receipt you will receive will be in my name, as a Registered Psychotherapist, which is acceptable by many insurance companies (e.g. Sunlife / government, others). If need be, I could issue a receipt in the name of Dr. Martin Rovers, Registered Psychologist, for the counselling services provided by me, a Registered Psychotherapist. It is your responsibility to determine which receipt works for our workplace insurance and benefits.

The regular fee for counselling is $160 (plus HST).
