About


I am currently in private practice in Toronto, Canada.  I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences and hold a clinical fellowship with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.  I am a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist in Ontario and member of the Ontario Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.


I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology at York University in 1990 and completed my Masters in Clinical Psychology at Phillips Graduate Institute in Encino, California in 2001, specializing in Postmodern Therapies with emphasis on Solution-Focused Brief Therapy.  I then continued to work in various outpatient and inpatient clinical settings, gaining extensive supervision and training while working with individuals, children, adolescents, couples, and families from diverse cultural and social backgrounds; as well as running groups, workshops and parenting classes. 


My work with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health in the nonprofit sectors provided me further knowledge and experience performing assessments, diagnosis, treatment plans, motivational interviewing, and working and collaborating with other agencies and services such as schools, social and family services, psychiatrists, courts and probation, under strict legal and ethical guidelines.


I am also the administrative director of the Shamanic Yoga Inc. and volunteer my services with the World Shamanic Yoga Institute where I completed a 4-week teacher training in 2010.  I was introduced to yoga 24 years ago at York U and continue to grow and deepen my yoga and meditation practices which give me invaluable tools and insights I aim to integrate into my daily life as well as my therapeutic work.
