What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is the use of psychological methods, particularly when based on regular personal interaction, to help a person change and overcome problems in desired ways. It is a regulated profession in Ontario under College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (

Psychotherapists are trained in talk and experiential therapy to help improve the quality of life, satisfaction in relationships, functioning in society, performance in work or play, general health and well-being of individuals.

There are many different styles of therapy: relational, Gestalt, Jungian, experiential, CBT, DBT, and more. Each style has a set of pros and cons and has a particular focal area where it works best. My training was in multiple schools so that we could draw upon the technique that works best in different situations. I have additional training as a birth doula, end of life care practitioner, grief counseling, and group facilitation.  As well as trained in Reiki, yoga and meditation, and other complementary therapies.

I offer a safe space to explore your feelings and history, examine your reactions and patterns, and heal your wounds so you may live a more fulfilling life.

There are a lot of tools at your disposal to help you get there and psychotherapy (aka therapy) is one. Finding a therapist in Toronto who resonates with you is important. Trust, comfort and safety are important attributes in the relationship between therapist and client.

I offer a free 30-minute consultation to meet, answer any of your questions and see if we resonate. There is no commitment and it is not an active session. Please explore these pages and when you are ready, contact me to set up a time or book online.
