Welcome to my private practice and I am glad that you have taken a step towards changing and healing your life and relationships. I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist with CAMFT, a Certified Couple and Family Therapist with OAMFT, Clinical Fellow with AAMFT, a Certified Sex Therapist with BESTCO (Board of Examiners in Sex Therapy and Counselling in Ontario), and a Certified Relational Life Therapist (RLT-Terry Real). I have been in practice for 35 years and provide individuals, couples and families with an integrative approach to achieving a better life and relationships. The focus of therapy is to provide insights and to teach new skills, so that clients are able to bring their best self to the worst moments of their life or relationships. I guide people through a process of being able to speak truthfully about their painful and complicated life-stories, including family of origin trauma, affairs, addictions, sexuality concerns, and boundary and self-esteem issues. Through a variety of techniques I help clients understand their unhealthy dynamics, and show them what they can do to build new healthier relationships. As a specialty, I also provide “Couple Intensives” in a series of 2-6, two-three hour couple sessions, with my colleague, Gail Winemaker, MA, RP. We help couples to make their relationship the best it can be…all the way to those that cannot decide, “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” We get to the heart of the matter quickly and we don’t miss a beat. We help couples to make decisions to move their relationship forward or, when necessary, to end their relationship.
