Her repertoire extends to treating mood as well as personality disorders within her private practice.

During my years of practice, I have increasingly come to appreciate the importance of integrating the mental, emotional and spiritual perspective into my work. I refer to this approach to treatment as ‘Psych Synergy”. As we access the connections from past to present experience and understand the underlying reasons for our behaviour and decision making and the resulting impact of these experiences, we unveil who we truly are towards self-actualization.

The idea is not to get stuck on any trauma or negative experience but rather to empower oneself by identifying the negative patterns of behaviour and emotional response geared towards release and resolution within self. The essence of healing thus comes from the intergration and assimilation of all parts of our being, working in unison and harmony for our greatest good and highest benefit. This brings us the contentment and happiness we so desire.

I believe it is important to recognize the uniqueness of each individual that consults with me, which allows me to formulate a treatment plan that is tailored to each individual. This client centered approach allows me to design and structure my work with you in a way that takes into account your abilities and potential, as well as your concerns and problems. I will look towards helping you develop and strengthen your resources and enhance your clarity of thought, no matter what challenges you may face. Change is essential and change is possible. I believe that everyone can find ways to achieve mastery and healing in their lives, even in the most difficult of circumstances.
