Analytic Candidate, T.I.C.P.
I have been in private practice since 2003, seeing both
individuals and couples.
I am a clinical member of the Ontario Association of
Psychotherapists and received my training and
diploma from the Toronto Institute of Relational
I am currently a psychoanalytic analyst
at the Toronto Institute for Contemporary
Psychoanalysis. In addition I have an honours
bachelor of Fine Arts from York University.
In the world of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis
there are generally two streams, those who practice from a
more medicalized model and those who approach the
field from the humanities, from a literary or arts
perspective. While mindful of the importance and value in
each, my background is in the arts. I am a musician, and
have spent almost 30 years listening deeply and responding
sensitively to others in the moment. This same
skill informs my work as a therapist.
From both my professional and personal experience I
believe that it is not necessarily the therapeutic theory,
the approach, or the programme that leads to change and
growth. It's the something extra, the relationship that we
forge that can make growth and real change possible.
