PhD, C. Psych.
You are reaching out for help because you feel trapped or lost, can’t move forward with a critical decision, or you feel anxious and overwhelmed. I have good news! Personal therapy can make a real difference. In therapy, with a careful analysis of your perspective and circumstances, you can regain a sense of hope, direction, and purpose. I am amazed by the strength my clients find to rise up and thrive despite seemingly crushing problems. I will work with you to help you understand your barriers, process your emotions, and set a course to be strong and live better!
I use cognitive behavioral and client-centered approaches for depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress, chronic health problems, difficult relationships, workplace stress, and other emotionally troubling issues. I believe that you can find hope in the struggles you are facing. I work to help you bring about desired changes through goal setting, active interpersonal support, and skill building.
After completing studies in theology and related work, I pursued a career in psychology. I am a registered psychologist authorized for autonomous practice by The College of Psychologists of Ontario. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Toronto and have been admitted to the Canadian Register of Health Service Psychologists (CRHSP). I am owner and clinical director at Advance Health. My areas of competency include clinical, counselling, and rehabilitation psychology with adolescents, adults, and couples. I provide assessment and treatment for psychological disability, trauma-related injury, and psychovocational functioning.
