A Strategic Approach to the Mechanics of Mind
And you pick whatever lock is presented to you.
And once one lock is picked,
all the other locks become vulnerable.
Milton H. Erickson
I have been in practice for the last 20+ years and have helped countless individuals with severe difficulties, especially those that did not respond to traditional psychotherapy. My work has been featured in the media and at professional and academic conferences.
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.
If your extended health benefits cover the services of a Registered Social Worker my work may be fully or partly covered by those benefits. In that case, you would pay me directly and submit my receipt for reimbursement.
I have offices in North York and Downtown Toronto. Owing to COVID 19, my practice tends to be video and telephonic, but I am seeing some clients in my North York location, a backyard tent set up, when the weather is amenable.
Looking for psychotherapy services conducted in Chinese? I can provide a referral.
Is my work right for you?
Could be, if you are looking to achieve personality restructuring in order to achieve your personal or professional goals, or are looking for help with a mental health difficulty.
Not a good fit, if you are seeking services as part of a MVA benefit, a disability benefit, require custody evaluation or any court-mandated service, potentially require an expert witness down the line for any reason. 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.
