I completed the Professional Program in Advanced Gestalt Leadership Training and I have completed four years of training at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto. Presently I am providing Supervised Gestalt Therapy as I work towards achieving my clinical hours and running a private practice in Toronto. My own professional development continues beyond this and I am balancing the experiential methods of Gestalt Psychotherapy as a mature student at the University of Toronto. As well I continue to gain insight and up-to-date knowledge through ongoing professional workshops and seminars.
I work with the following presenting problems:
- Grief, depression, trauma, shame and loss.
- Neglect, abuse, bullying and early childhood issues.
- Addiction (alcohol, drugs and food) and recovery.
- Anger, conflict and anxiety.
- Self esteem, life transitions, blockages and inner conflict.
- Intimacy and sexuality.
- Personal development, insight, and exploration.
As an artist, I enjoy working with Art and Creative Therapy from a Gestalt perspective.
I adhere to the Code of Ethics for Therapists and Leaders Practicing at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto. This includes Standards of Integrity, Confidentiality, Respect for Client’s Rights, Responsibility to the Profession, Fee Setting and Financial Issues, and Public Relations.
My supervisor is JoAnne Greenham, executive director of the Gestalt Institute of Toronto.
