Information for Patients

From the practitioner: About My Practice

I practice traditional psychotherapy with a high emphasis on lifestyle factors to support healthy thoughts, emotions, and stories you tell yourself daily. My goal is to provide clients with a fresh outlook on their future. By bringing you back to the basics, and an awareness of why you are feeling stuck, you will regain control of in your life. I place a high emphasis on bringing the body back to a state of hormesis, often through hormonal balance, self-love, a sense of community and significance and peace.

I practice out of two offices, one in Toronto (virtually only) and the other in Winnipeg (virtually and in-person).

From the practitioner: What Patients Can Expect

I start each session documenting a detailed family history so I can plot a timeline of events and experiences that have conditioned you to have the thoughts and emotions you experience today. Together we access the necessary tools you require to heal. At times these tools will require me to complete specific lab testing (when physical and/or emotional symptoms are impacting your ability to live a happy, fulfilled life) while at other times traditional psychotherapy will be enough for you. Our thoughts and emotions have a huge impact on our biology, but that is not to say that making changes in your diet, sleep hygiene, relationships and movement will have an equally large effect on your well being.
