I believe that a fulfilling life comes from integrating all parts of ourselves: our beliefs, our emotions, our behaviour and our relationships. Forming a strong relationship with my clients, I help clients to discover where their strengths lie, and how best to apply them to the areas that need more attention.

A long-time teacher of philosophy at the University of Toronto, I am uniquely capable of listening to clients, helping them to reflect in ways that are truly life altering.

Motivational Interviewing

I am a Registered Social Worker and Canadian Certified Counsellor who has been trained in Motivational Interviewing (MI). It is a modality that looks at the role that an addiction plays in people’s lives, and finds other, healthier ways to fulfil those needs. Motivational Interviewing will help you:

  • To explore the positive aspects of an addiction to discover the role that it is playing in your life.
  • To discover alternative ways of filling those roles that are neither destructive nor addictive.
  • To manage urges as they inevitably arise and to learn to avoid relapse.
  • To heal the underlying wounds that have made life unbearable and that made an addiction seem like the best solution.

Motivational Interviewing allows clients to explore the motivations behind an addiction without fear or shame, and to develop skills that can be used long after therapy has completed.
