Columbia-trained social worker with Doctorate in Psychology, specialized training, works with the unconscious mind to help your symptom become what it wants to be when it grows up!
I'm a social worker with a Doctorate in Education at the University of Toronto, specializing in Counselling Psychology. I'm a Registered Social Worker in the province of Ontario, and within that license, practice psychotherapy.
I've been is private practice for 25+ years, specializing in work with OCD, and difficult to treat conditions. Many who come into my practice have worked with different therapists to no avail. I have had success with some difficult-to-treat conditions.
I co-founded the Milton H. Erickson Institute of Toronto with two colleagues. I have advanced training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Processing), Ericksonian therapy and hypnosis and projective personality assessment.
My doctoral dissertation explored the use of Graphology (handwriting analysis) within psychotherapy. Graphology, a European clinical technique, is mostly unfamiliar to the North American clinical community. I authored "Clinical Graphology: An Interpretive Manual for Mental Health Practitioners," which was published by Charles C Thomas, a leading academic publishing house.
My work has been featured in dailies and trade magazines across North America. I have presented widely in academic and clinical circles.
I'm a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers
