Psychotherapy Provider (Social worker (clinical))
Credentials Verified by PM

Member of Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW)

I am a registered Masters level social worker providing private therapy, consultation and educational services in the Greater Toronto Area. I have a specialization in health, mental health and addictions and clinical work experience in academic, hospital and community settings.

Much of my private practice work is with children, teens and young adults - helping them through this difficult life period.

I believe that my role as a therapist is to be collaborative. I see our work together as a partnership. My role is to work WITH you to help achieve the results you desire.

I offer a flexible schedule and am able to accommodate evening and weekend appointments. I also offer cybercounselling and tele-therapy sessions for those who prefer that option.
