(Hypnotherapy is a positive adjunct to therapy as well can address issues such as: smoking, anxiety, stress, self esteem/confidence, and other related "life" concerns/problems.) 






As a product of over 20 years in the Financial Industry I acquired a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the 'hyper demanding culture' of the corporate/business sector.  While developing skills in the areas of: Marketing & Development, Cash Dept. Services, Accounting, Loans, Mortgages, Collections and Negotiations, both in the capacity of management and within the union, the experiential lessons of such a tenure have informed my Counselling.  


I have been afforded the opportunity to choose my second career, one in the area of Psychology rather than that of what I would refer to as 'bean counting'.  My foray into academics/Psychology commenced in my forties.  Propelled by a passion to address and alleviate  the everyday mental health issues that thwart and sometimes cripple individuals, I avidly persued the profession of Psychotherapist.


Subsequent to a BA in Psychology I completed an MEd at the University of Toronto and was Certified by the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Assn. (CCPA-2004).  I further became a Certified Hypnotherapist and completed a Masters in Hypnotherapy (2011) and also received my Registered Psychotherapist (RP) designation in 2015.  The highlight of my degrees was the opportunity to work at Millbrook Correctional Facility (approximately 8 months) my supervision being overseen by three, in my opinion, illustrious doctors of Psychology who taught me "that Psychotherapy/Counselling works" and can and does make a difference in peoples lives. 


Throughout my careers I have dedicated significant time and effort to volunteerism and community development via:  the co-organizing of  The Credit Grantor's of Oshawa; work as a political activist; advocated for individuals systemically marginalized;  investment, time and engergy in charities such as Children's Wish and Riding for the Disabled,  


Based on a clear understanding of the concerns, traumas, grief/loss, financial & emotional stressors that plague our every day lives I employ "best practices" and a positive working relationship to secure your best outcome.
