I graduated from the Couple and Family Therapy post-graduate program of the Jewish General Hospital, Institute of Community and Family Psychiatry. I also have a Masters of Social Work from McGill University.
I currently have a private practice, located in a clinic called The Applied Learning Centre (http://appliedlearningcenter.com).
My therapeutic approach with individuals, couples and families integrates Psycho-dynamic, Systemic and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) strategies and techniques. It is always best to implement a therapeutic modality best suited to the particular client’s presenting problems and needs. When working with children, my choice of therapy is typically CBT and Narrative Therapy. My use of “play” facilitates the therapeutic process, enabling painful issues to be addressed, or challenging behaviours modified. Treatment plans and goals are always established and agreed upon between myself and my client(s), such that the therapy is productive and effective.
I understand that acknowledging a need, or desire, for therapy may not be easy. The thought of confronting and/or dealing with painful situations and relationships, past or present, may cause discomfort and anxiety. My hope is that in working together, I will be able to ease you through a difficult and challenging process; one which will help you to create healthier pathways to more functional and satisfying relationships, along with an enhanced sense of meaning in your life.
Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or by email, so that we may discuss your particular request.
