I'm a registered psychologist, and psychotherapist. I work with individuals of all ages on a short-term or long-term basis. I apply what I know about how the mind works, including how the mind interacts with our emotional world, to your unique life-story. I also practice psychoanalysis. Psychotherapy is a bit like learning a musical instrument... the more time and attention we put into it, the more progress we make. Still, a lot can be gained with a limited number of sessions.
I work in the room on a short or long-term basis. I also practice psychoanalysis which involves frequent sessions per week, a long-term commitment from the client/patient, and optional use of the couch. These options are best talked about in your first session.
I do not currently offer video or tele-therapy.

My approach depends somewhat on the individual client/patient. Different people need different things at different times. My approach will be influenced by a number of factors: short versus long-term work, the age of the client, the individual reason for commencing psychotherapy, frequency of sessions per week.

I regularly attend ongoing professional development seminars, conferences, and professional supervision.

I'm a psychologist and psychotherapist. I work with individuals on a short-term or long-term basis. I apply what I know about how the mind works, including how the mind interacts with our emotional world, to your unique life-story. Early on in the process I do a great deal of listening to you in order to get as full an understanding as is possible of your history, circumstances, present needs, and hopes for your future. I recommend at least once-weekly sessions. ...
