About Me

I am a Psychologist and Psychoanalyst in Toronto with over 20 years of experience working in mental health, as well as a highly regarded teacher and clinical supervisor with extensive experience in psychotherapy training and supervision. In my career as a psychologist and academic scholar at the University Health Network, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, and the University of Toronto, I developed a strong reputation for my expertise in the psychotherapeutic treatment of complex mental disorders, and as a teacher and supervisor of psychotherapy with psychology and psychiatry residents. Now in private practice full time, I continue to teach extensively and maintain a program of academic scholarship. I am an Adjunct Lecturer in Psychiatry in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto, on Faculty and a Supervising Analyst at the Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis, on Faculty and a Candidate Supervisor at the Institute for the Advancement of Self Psychology, and I teach and supervise psychiatry residents in psychodynamic psychotherapy at the University Health Network.

About My Practice

With an ongoing commitment to academic scholarship and extensive clinical experience I provide compassionate, client-centred evidence-based psychological care through tailored consultation, psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. I maintain a general practice that focuses on helping people find lasting relief from a wide range of problems and concerns, from serious psychiatric and psychological conditions that require extensive treatment, to less severe but still significant personal and interpersonal difficulties that create discomfort and limit the quality of one’s life. In addition, I am recognized for my expertise in the treatment of severe complex psychological trauma, personality disorders, and psychosomatic disorders. I also provide professional consultation and supervision for psychiatrists, psychologists, and other regulated health professionals wishing to further develop their skills in psychotherapy and/or psychoanalysis.
