I am a Registered Psychotherapist, currently practising in Newmarket. I graduated from the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy in Toronto, and have been in private practice since 2019.
I am a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and sit on the board of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapists (CAPT).

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is often referred to as “talk-therapy”. While it is that, it can also be so much more. Psychotherapy is an uncovering of our unconscious minds. It’s a way of learning more about ourselves through patterns of relating, and the ways in which we deal with feelings and emotions, in order to bring about growth and change. This is possible through a safe, supportive and confidential space created by the therapist and the client.
More specifically, psychodynamic psychotherapy is a type of therapy that sees the meaning of someone’s symptoms or complaints within a larger context of them as a whole person; “a dynamic, growing, feeling, changing human being with conflicts, fears, anxieties, and psychological defenses” (Fels Usher 2).

Fees & Insurance
My fee for a 50-minute session is $130.
Payment is due at the beginning of each session and I currently only accept E-transfer, unless another paypment plan has been arranged between us.
Since psychotherapy is regulated under the CRPO, some insurance companies do cover psychotherapy; however, it is not covered under OHIP.
Please check directly with your insurance company to see what is covered, and how the process of getting reimbursed works.
