Are you looking for an online therapist for support in order to heal, transform, and grow as a person? I work with individuals and couples, by encrypted online video, to help them to go from just surviving, to thriving in their lives. All emotions can be explored in a safe environment during our sessions; including anger, grief or sadness as well as joy, curiosity and acceptance. I'm here to support you in developing healthy boundaries, as well as to bring balance to all the aspects of yourself: emotions, mind, and body. We go at your pace and with your goals in mind and in your environment.
In our sessions, we'll first take the time to understand your story. We'll work together to better understand how you view your life experiences and any unfinished business that may be keeping you from breathing deeply and freely. Understanding how your emotions and thoughts work together or against each other is key. Greater insight and understanding can equal greater meaning and peace. When you discover how to flow with yourself and your environment, you can be more open to excitement and vitality in living.
"If you've tried speaking with your friends and family, and haven't gotten any satisfying answers, or if there are certain inner struggles you can't share with them, that's when psychotherapy can be useful."
My main approaches in counselling are both Gestalt psychotherapy and mindfulness. With both of these, I help you bring your stories, and your heartfelt feelings, to the forefront of your being. I work from a place of compassion and honesty. Whether you have a specific issue you are looking to heal from, or you wish to delve deeply into long-term therapy, it is my goal to support you towards who you want to see yourself become.
First consultation is free. I accept both Psychotherapy and Psychology insurance.
I am an LGBTQ friendly and sex positive Pyschotherapist.
Technology that is Secure and Private
Technology-wise, I use Zoom Meetings for my online video therapy sessions. I choose not to use regular Skype because through it, I can't protect your privacy. Zoom Meetings is designed to protect your privacy and anonymity. The program is very easy to install and can be used through your web browser. Please ensure that you're in a space where you can have the privacy to speak freely and that is quiet, so we can both focus on your needs for the duration of the time.
Online talk therapy can be used on its own or in conjunction with your visits in person to my counselling office in either Kitchener or Toronto. Say you've been seeing me for some time and are then about to travel. Switching to online talk therapy while you travel is easy, and keeps the continuity of our work going. This way, you can be sure that your needs are met wherever you are.
I'm ready when you are
