I am a clinical psychologist. I am committed both personally and professionally to enhancing your sense of self and your interpersonal relationships. I offer individual psychotherapy, couples psychotherapy (with same-sex and opposite-sex couples), group psychotherapy, psychoeducation and personality assessments to adults. I work with a broad range of issues including anxiety, bereavement, childbirth, childhood abuse, culture, depression, ethnicity, grief, interpersonal relationships, intimacy, parenting, and pregnancy. I accept referrals from mental health professionals who seek psychological assessments for clients for the purpose of informing treatment plans.

I support change toward emotional and psychological wellbeing in a safe therapeutic atmosphere. I attend to the uniqueness of your experiences and to the cultural context out of which this uniqueness emerges. I encourage change by using an experiential treatment approach that encompasses imago relationship therapy, emotion focused therapy, gestalt therapy, redecision therapy, and transactional analyses.

I understand the complexities associated with issues of difference, diversity, and cultural identity. I have over twenty three years of extensive cultural, social, and professional experience with children, adolescents, and adults in Canada, the United States, and South Africa. I provided mental health services to adults, families, and children with behavioural, emotional, psychiatric, and psychological problems.

I serve as part-time faculty in the Department of Psychology at York University and in Continuing Education at Humber Institute for Technological and Advanced Learning. My professional research interest is in the change processes that occur in psychotherapy. I served as coordinator for a Couples Emotional Injury Project in the Department of Psychology at York University.

I am a registered member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario, a member of the Ontario Psychological Association, a member of the American Psychological Association, and a National Certified Counselor with the National Board for Certified Counselors. I am a Clinical member of The Institute for Imago Relationship Therapy and Imago Canada International.
