Registered Psychologist

Pronoun: She/her

It has been my pleasure to provide over 30 years of counselling, psychotherapy and assessment services; working in private practice, community organizations, schools, and corporate settings. During this time I have cared for a wide variety of individuals, couples and groups from a diverse range of socioeconomic, cultural and sexually diverse backgrounds.

I have worked extensively in the areas of depression, anxiety, physical and sexual trauma, addictions, personality disorders, family and relationship difficulties, crisis management, and career related stress. My associates and I are also trained and licensed in providing standardized psychological and psychoeducational diagnostic assessments for children, adolescents and adults.

I am a registered member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario, licensed to provide psychological services to children, adolescents, adults, couples and organizations. I was educated first at York University, where I received a Specialized Honours in Psychology. I then received my Master of Education and Doctor of Philosophy in Psychology from the University of Toronto.

As a registered psychologist, I am committed to lifelong learning and a high standard of care. I participate in ongoing professional training that is evidence based and relevant to the needs of my patients. In accordance with the regulations of my College and the Canadian Psychological Association, I abide by all ethical standards and quality assurance guidelines.
