As a Clinical and Health Psychologist, I am able to provide effective psychotherapy for adults with a broad range of presenting issues. These include depression, anxiety, insomnia, or managing challenging medical conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, or chronic pain. Help is also available for attention deficit disorder, procrastination, perfectionism, gambling, and impulse-control disorders such as hair pulling and skin picking. I also motivate and assist clients in staying healthy by increasing healthy behaviours such as exercise, losing weight, quitting smoking, or reducing alcohol use.
I most frequently use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in my work. CBT is a time-limited, goal-oriented therapy that focuses on learning new patterns of thinking and behaving. Of all psychotherapeutic approaches, CBT has the most evidence from well-controlled research showing that it works for specific problems.
I am a founder and Clinical Director at Connect Cognitive Therapy, a dedicated group of highly-trained professionals who provide top-quality, evidence-based, compassionate care to help our clients lead more satisfying lives. Previously, I have worked full-time as a Psychologist at Trillium Health Partners, Credit Valley Hospital.
