Dear client, welcome to my therapeutic practice!

PLEASE NOTE that as we navigate these uncertain times due to COVID-19, all services will be offered through a privacy secured virtual office only (i.e., video or phone sessions only, no in-office appointments).

COVID-19 UPDATE

I am committed to reduce exposure and stop the spread of COVID-19. I have shifted all in-office appointments to phone/video therapy in an effort to support social distancing while also ensuring the continuity of your care. I continue accepting new clients (adults only) for individual psychotherapy.

Due to the Coronavirus, now more than ever people are facing stress, anxiety and feel overwhelmed. It is a perfect time to reach out for help and learn to cope with current crisis. I would like to help you to get back on track. I can guide you and support you through these challenging times.

I am dedicated and committed to the enhancement of well-being and growth of my clients by providing quality psychological services to individuals with a wide range of psychological problems.

I use evidence-based treatments to help my clients achieve their personal goals. My training and experience span a variety of theoretical approaches, and I focus on providing the assistance that fits best with an individual’s specific situation and needs. The focus of my practice is working with adults of all ages in individual psychotherapy.

My office is conveniently located in Newmarket, Ontario. The clinic is quiet, easily accessible, and comfortable. Free and ample parking is available. Daytime and evening appointments can be requested.

Therapy is an interesting journey that can transform you and lead to a positive turning point in life.

Please call or email the office to schedule a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation.
