      “If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a 'person'            changes 'their' own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards 'them'. … We need not wait to see what others do.” MAHATMA GANDHI

I am a Mental Health Practitioner and Counsellor in private practice in Aurora, Ontario.  I have been a registered member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Practitioners (OAMHP), formerly the OACCPP since 2013.
 
In my practice I see a wide range of clients, ranging in age from eighteen to sixty-five plus.  My focus is depression, anxiety, grief and addiction.  I also work with couples offering marriage fitness / counselling.  I see palliative clients and their caregivers, as well as those suffering with Tinnitus resulting from hearing loss or anxiety.  Teaching life skills is also an integral part of the work I do.  Additionally, I have found it essential to incorporate relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, imagery, and progressive muscle relaxation  to give the client the opportunity to create the calm needed to achieve the best results.

For over a decade I have supported those suffering a wide range of life changing experiences. I primarily use CBT, which is goal oriented for problem solving; MBCT, which incorporates meditation and is "present" oriented; and EFT which is based in the belief that we construct ourselves through our emotions. 
   
My ideal client has difficulty coping, and feels emotionally overloaded; but they are also ready for a change. Your distress can create anxiety and depression that results in negative thoughts, which influence your behavior and emotions. Avoiding unpleasant emotions can cause harm and inappropriate reactive behaviors. Emotional and psychological support for challenging issues involving grief, relationships, and personal development,  are some of the stressors I work with. Through counselling we can focus on your needs and set goals that will ultimately give you tools to cope with life on life's terms.
Rather than looking at people as flawed, I see people who want growth and change, and have the ability to move forward. I am empathetic to your needs, and I invite you to call for a free phone consultation. I understand your schedule can be tricky to manage, so I offer convenient, & fully PHIPA compliant online therapy, plus my regular office hours.
