Greater self-expression and self-acceptance, more enriching relationships, the possibility of a fuller, more meaningful and creative life—these I believe can be some of the benefits of psychotherapy.

Many years of experience working with both individuals and couples confirm my belief that it is within the context of a solid, supportive, collaborative therapeutic relationship that we can find our way back to the fundamental importance of open and honest human conversation—conversation with our therapist, with ourselves, with those we hold dear, with those we have yet to understand, even with those with whom there is nothing further to say.

Originally from Montreal, je travaille également en français, I work in English and in French. I work with individuals and couples.

In addition to my professional training I am drawn in my ongoing and life-long learning to literature, art, languages and culture, to creativity and the wonder of nature.

    • Member, Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT)
    • Member, Ontario Association of Consultants, Counselors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists (OACCPP)

Challenges you might be facing

My work is psychodynamically and psychoanalytically based. I also draw on relational and phenomenological perspectives. While I could provide a long list of issues clients have brought to therapy over the years, it is my experience that we are all individuals who struggle in unique ways with our personal histories, our self-esteem, ourselves in relationship with varying degrees of anxiety, fear, confidence, shame, depressionaddictions—and hope. We are all more than our ‘issues’. I look forward to meeting you, and working with you!

What happens in a therapy session

In my experience of psychotherapy, it is in slowing things down and taking time to listen attentively that we develop our capacity to understand our experience. We begin to feel what before we could not; we learn to recognize, make sense of, and reach beyond outgrown patterns of behaviour; we find our words. We dare to try, to trust, and not just repeat; we begin choosing to get out of our own way.  And so we grow.

Getting Started

You know what’s on your mind. You know what keeps calling for your attention. This is where our therapeutic conversation can begin. It is within the context of our relationships with family, friends, loved-ones, and work connections that we become who we are. The therapeutic relationship is one that can facilitate ongoing personal growth as we more intentionally explore how we have come to be who we are—and who it is we hope to become.

In your search for a psychotherapist, trust that you will know when you find the right one for you. Take your time, ask questions, follow your intuition.  Please feel free to contact me at any time. In a brief telephone conversation, I will be pleased to consider with you your circumstances and answer any questions you may have. I am available to set up an appointment to meet with you at your convenience.
