Psychotherapy and Couples’ Counselling

At times we may feel at a loss with life’s demands. As a Social Worker, Psychotherapist I work together with you to help you better make sense of your own experience and to hear yourself in a new and meaningful way. I specialize in anxiety, depression, cancer, chronic illness, trauma, stress management and burnout. In a couple, I work collaboratively with you to support you in having clarity and improving communication, and creating space for nourishment in your relationship. I offer services in-person, virtually, or by phone. My office is located in the Annex neighbourhood of Toronto (Spadina and Bloor area).  My services are covered by private health insurance and I offer sliding scale rates based on income. Direct billing to Green Shield Canada and Medavie Blue Cross available*. LGBTQIIA+ BIPOC warmly welcome.

Free phone consultation 

I invite you to contact me to discuss your needs and goals in therapy. I offer a free 15 min phone call to help us get a sense of how well we can work together.

Virtual Mindfulness Training

As a formally trained mindfulness instructor with the Centre for Mindfulness Studies/University of Toronto, I offer mindfulness coaching, groups and intro to mindfulness workshops for organizations (single workshops and 8-week Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) group programs) via Zoom. Over the last 5 years, I have delivered mindfulness training to staff at the University Health Network, CCAC/Central LHIN, Ministry of Community Services and Correctional Services and grad students at the University of Toronto.


my approach

My approach

I am a mother, sister, daughter, dancer, educator and lifelong student. My specialties are in the areas of depression, anxiety, stress and burnout and in cancer survivorship. I have also worked with adults at The Princess Margaret, CAMH, Salvation Army, START Clinic for Mood and Anxiety Disorders who were facing trauma, substance use, anger,  psychosis, isolation, suicidal thoughts, etc. My approach is Humanistic and is based on Mindfulness-based modalities, Radical Acceptance, Self-Compassion, Eye Movement and Desensitization (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Sex Therapy, Strength-based and Emotionally-focused modalities. I adopt an anti-oppression and culturally-sensitive framework, having lived and studied in various countries over the last two decades (Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, Romania).

My goal

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.” David Richo

Our sensitivity is what can often scar us, but it is also what gives us the immense clarity needed to make skillful choices to live meaningfully. My goal is to help my clients access what is meaningful and fulfilling and face the hardships of life with grace.


Mindfulness is an integral part of my personal and professional practice. I have attended Vipassana 10-day silent retreats and many one-day retreats as well as other classes and workshops. I have received my qualification of mindfulness instructor from the Centre for Mindfulness Studies / University of Toronto. I have been leading mindfulness programs, retreats and drop-in sessions with  Mindfulness in Public Safety, University of Toronto, Central LHIN, Princess Margaret Cancer Center, the Law Union of Ontario and in private practice over the last several years.
