    You may sense the life you desire evades you. The present may feel dominated by the past. Chronic depression, anxiety, or a sense of feeling stuck might colour your days. Or perhaps your challenges show up most in your relationship: there may be a lot of conflict or a sense of disconnection with your partner. Therapy can help.

    In my practice, I work with individuals and couples to create new possibilities for resilience, connection, and well-being.

    Good psychotherapy helps us find new ways of being in the world, of understanding our emotions, and of relating to others. When we settle into deeper reflection, we discover and integrate parts of ourselves we’ve disconnected from. Therapy is a pathway to grow in ways we’ve sometimes not even thought possible.

    It is worth emphasizing that therapy can bring benefits that aren’t merely personal—our loved ones, friends, and colleagues around us often benefit as well, as we work, live, and love in a way that is more functional and more deeply connected to others.

    This kind of personal work helps us to live a life that reflects more depth of feeling and a greater sense of vitality. I commend your courage and commitment to yourself in exploring it.

    I specialize in both individual and couples work.

    Individual therapy: Typically I meet with individuals once or twice weekly for 60-minute sessions during which we discuss whatever you, the client, bring in to address. Through reflective conversation we work toward increasing your sense of authentic living, a life lived with more purpose and choice. As a psychodynamic therapist, I focus on medium-to-long-term therapy with individuals, carried out with empathy, compassion, and deep listening. In a safe and confidential setting, we work at a pace you determine. Individual therapy rates: $130/session.

    Couples therapy: In the words of poet John Donne, “No man is an island.” Connected, close relationships and strong bonds are essential to our lives. If you and your partner find yourselves caught in patterns of distress and conflict, couples therapy can be a powerful resource for creating a more secure emotional connection. Sessions are 75 minutes long. Couples therapy rates: $140/session.

    My formal education and training includes a Master of Arts degree and graduate studies in the history and theory of psychoanalysis, followed by rigorous academic and experiential training at the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy (CTP). Currently I hold a faculty position at CTP.

    My couples therapy training follows the modality known as Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, founded by Sue Johnson. I hold membership with the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT).

    Finally, I also draw on personal experience of having deeply benefitted from therapeutic work. It enables me to listen to clients from a place of empathy with what it’s like to live with struggle—while also having known the rewards of increased openness and vitality, based on finding therapy to be an agent of change in my life.
