With over 15 years of experience, specializing in mental health I founded my private practice, A Safe Place to Share.  I worked mainly with medical Doctors and Psychiatrists focusing on mental health.  This paved the way for the expansion and integration of my practice into depression, anxiety, panic, alcohol, sex, love and food addictions, multiple addictions, shame, infidelity, stress management, relationships, weight problems and eating disorders.

I continued my education at the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP) in Arizona. CSAT’s are licensed therapists with graduate degrees. CSAT certification is the most in-depth training currently available for the treatment of sex addiction and multiple addictions and is widely sought after by experts in the field.

I now have a very large and diverse practice working with individual clients in person and offering online tele-therapy. I work with families of adolescence and young adults who are struggling with addiction as well. I run in-person and online groups for addicts and partners/families of addicts. I have worked with a broad range of clients and have expertise in the treatment of compulsive behaviors which may include alcohol, drugs, food, pornography, use of prostitutes, escort services, massage parlors, and internet sites. I also work with spouses, partners and families affected by a family member’s compulsive behaviour.  I have helped many work through the betrayal of infidelity and trauma. I am trained in Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT). I help to facilitate the creation of secure, lasting bonds between intimate partners and family members.

I am an interactive, solution-focused, task-based therapist. My therapeutic model is to provide support, encouragement, a highly personalized tailored approach to each client. I believe in developing a partnership between the client and myself in the healing process. I know that therapy has the power to heal and transform people’s lives. Working with me can help to address psychological, emotional and interpersonal issues.  

Connecting with me: I offer easy-to-connect therapy sessions through tele-therapy. I offer real time video conference that allows you to have regular sessions with me in the privacy of your place.
