My goal as counsellor is to create a supportive environment in which clients can explore their
emotional needs and overcome barriers that limit their full potential.
I take an open-minded approach to client wellness and consider the client's work life,
family traditions, cultural and spiritual beliefs, and sexual identity.
I offer a reasonable sliding scale out of my strong commitment to making counselling accessible to the uninsured and individuals with financial limitations.
My background includes extensive studies at OISE, (The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education) in Applied Psychology / Guidance and Counselling,, a Masters equivalent degree from studies at York U. and University of Toronto, a five year psychotherapy certification programme from The Gestalt Institute of Toronto and 30 years experience as an educator/counsellor with the Peel District School Board.
I am the founder of Talk Shop Groups of Canada.
I have led "Talk Shops"
(self awareness counselling groups) with all ages for the past 30 years. I have also led Talk Shops for the Canadian Mental Health Association, Wellspring, the Peel Board of Education
and in the
Port Credit community.
Currently I lead "Talk Shop for Women" year round, and provide individual and couples
