I specialize in working with adolescents, and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, anger management, relationship issues, eating disorders, low self-esteem, school or peer problems, and transitional or career issues. I strive to create a warm, supportive and nonjudgmental environment where we can work together to make healthy changes. I am experienced in providing brief and long-term therapy, and provide help that addresses immediate concerns, as well as provides enduring change.

Although I received training in many therapeutic models (cognitive-behavioural, emotion-focused, solution-oriented and psychodynamic, to list a few), I don't work within the boundaries of any one approach, but rather offer a personalized approach to therapy, tailored to each person's individual needs.

My masters and doctorate training at Queen's University included extensive study and research of the brain neurochemistry and the effects of psychiatric medications. This knowledge makes me uniquely positioned to be able to review recent medical literature on medications, and current scientific research in biological as well as psychological contributions to psychological disorders.

I am currently affiliated with the Herzl Family Practice as a psychotherapist working with the Adolescent Psychology services. As well as the First Episode Psychosis Program Research coordinator at the Montreal Children’s Hospital.

I have a Psychotherapy Permit issued by the Quebec Order of Psychologists. Most private health insurance companies cover my services; please check with your private insurance provider.
