STATUS: CURRENTLY WAITLISTING NEW CLIENTS
Psychotherapy can be a lot of things, but one important aspect involves tapping into your own potential in order to live an authentic life. Grounded in dialogue, psychodynamic psychotherapy allows you a space to speak freely and in an unedited way. You and I, together, will pay attention to words, silences, and bodily sensations in order to uncover a story that is uniquely yours.
I work with an anti-oppression lens. I strive to be mindful and aware of the many aspects that make up your identity and the way they intersect and interact within your world. My social location as a queer, white, able-bodied cis-woman factors into our therapeutic relationship. I am not suggesting that this will be the focus of our work together but it’s important to me to let you know how I think about the systems in which we all live.
With my training as a clinical social worker we can work together for a shorter length of time, which is usually 2-3 months. We will focus on practical ways to address specific concerns.
The majority of the type of work I offer is longer-term psychodynamic psychotherapy, which was the focus of my training at the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy (CTP). Through our conversations, this type of therapy involves a collaborative effort to explore what might be going on beneath the surface, and what is not yet in your conscious awareness. I will invite you to speak about areas such as your current life, your familial history, and the systems in which you live. Therapy is hard work, but I assure you – change is possible.
I have now come full circle, graduating from the University of Toronto in 2015 with a Master of Social Work degree and practicing as a Registered Social Worker (RSW). I have also completed an intensive 6-year psychodynamic psychotherapy training program at the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy (CTP).
