|About||Impassioned by supporting client's health of mind, spirit, body, relationships; resolving trauma; empowering LGBTQ & marginalized peoples. Find joy!|
I strongly believe that people are doing the best they can in a given moment, given the skills they possess, the supports they have. And sometimes, one realizes..."I need help with this!".
I consider it an honour and privilege to join with my clients in their quest for greater health and happiness in various areas of life. As a trauma therapist, that often means redressing residual effects of past or recent traumatic or distressing events. It may mean correcting deeply seated "blocking beliefs' that interfere with relationships, job performance, self esteem. It may mean teaching people effective, safe coping skills for dealing with distress and emotions that feel unbearable...so that they learn to manage pain safely rather than turning to self harm, suicide, substance abuse, etc. It often means teaching people, slowly, what it is to feel validated, cared for, how to recognize their needs and to express them, and how to rediscover the essence of who they truly are.
I perceive all of this as health promotion!
However, on a literal level, I am trained and able to offer relief to people who suffer such physical issues as chronic pain, headaches and migraines...without the use of pharmaceuticals. Effective, efficient and proven protocols that do offer relief and enhance health. I'm very excited about this! As a migraine sufferer, I can attest to the effectiveness of the protocol.
Please be aware that in addition to my office in downtown Toronto, I also have an office in Mississauga. It is located at:
106 Lakeshore Rd E,
I have office hours there on Monday and Wednesday from 4pm-8pm.
As an RSW and member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW), may insurance companies offer coverage for my services. Please contact your insurance provider for information. Otherwise, fees are out of pocket as OHIP does not cover Social Work services at this time.
Fees: $140 per individual session (50m)
