White Chair in an Empty Room


Relationship problems are among the most stressful conditions people face. Distressed couples are more likely to experience depression, anxiety, suicidality, and substance abuse, as well as physiological symptoms including direct effects on cardiovascular, immune, and  endocrine systems. Relationship distress contributes to nearly 50% of admissions to mental hospitals, and couple issues have been shown to cause or worsen behavioural and psychological issues in children. These findings make clear that the quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives. For these reasons, I have dedicated my career exclusively to working with couples with a focus on helping repair past and current relationship injuries.


I am completing a doctoral degree in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy at the University of Toronto. My dissertation examines the different perceptions partners have of the responsiveness of their couples therapist, and whether these differences are impacted by gender.  


I am currently practicing under licensed supervision.
