Have you been thinking about talking with a therapist?

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Guiding individuals through life’s challenges with over 25 years of compassionate expertise

I am an experienced therapist with children, teens, young adults, adults, and their families. I empower adolescents to address personal challenges they are encountering with family, friends, school and identity issues. For young adults, I offer a safe haven to explore independence and autonomy issues, along with relationship and romantic concerns. I offer individual therapy to adults of all ages.


I am personable, easy to talk to and non judgmental. I am interested in learning about you and your life situation. We can talk together to  identify issues and strategies, which will make a difference for you.

Therapy Qualifications

I have training and experience in a wide variety of therapeutic modalities including:

Background & Experience

In addition to over 25 years in private practice with children and adults, I have worked on the outpatient and inpatient psychiatric units at SickKids Hospital in Toronto, and as a staff member of the former Stothers Center for Children in Etobicoke.

I trained in adult psychotherapy at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto and The Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis.

Although I no longer offer play therapy as a modality, my previous work and Certified Play Therapist certification informs both my clinical and professional Family Law services practices.


I see clients in person in my Guelph office. I developed a virtual practice during COVID, which I maintain. Online therapy is an option for clients who do not live in Guelph, or for those who prefer this platform.

Fees for my therapy services are on a sliding scale, based on ability to pay.

My fees for therapy services are on a sliding scale, based on ability to pay. My rates range from $100 to 175 per session. I reserve spots for a select number of pro bono clients, or for young adults who need a very reduced fee. I invoice quarterly and payment is by Interac.

Fees will be charged for missed sessions or sessions cancelled within 24 hours. These fees may be waived depending on the circumstances.
