Other modalities haven't worked for you?
I have been in private practice for the last 26 years and have helped countless individuals with severe difficulties, especially those that did not respond to traditional psychotherapy. My work has been featured in dailies across Canada, in trade magazines across North America, and on my blog in the Huffington Post and at professional and academic conferences. You can read journalists' experience of my work here.
I am a published author, a co-founder of the Milton H. Erickson Institute of Toronto, and was the senior consultant at the 2015 TED talks in British Columbia.

Also, I am not taking on cases that involve serious difficulties with emotional modulation or crisis counselling as my schedule sometimes requires last minute cancellations or re-scheduling.
Please note: I am a Registered Social Worker, not a Registered Psychotherapist. Best to check whether my services as a social worker are covered by your extended health benefits.
