I am a psychologist registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. I offer individual short- and long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, as well as psychological and psycho-educational assessment to adults and youth (12 years of age and up). In addition to my private practice, I am a psycho-educational consultant to the Youth Services Bureau. I am a member of the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA), Canadian Psychoanalytic Society-Quebec English Branch (CPS-QE), Ottawa Psychoanalytic Society (OPS), Canadian Psychological Association (CPA), and the Ottawa Academy of Psychology (OPA).
Where I studied and trained...
I received my Ph.D. in Counselling Psychology from Fordham University in New York in 2007, my M.A. and Ed.M. in Psychological Counselling from Columbia University in New York in 2002, and my B.Sc. in Biopsychology from the University of British Columbia in 1999. I was trained in various facilities and had the opportunity to work with a wide range of populations. I trained at a city hospital in the Bronx with inpatients and outpatients, a Veterans Affairs hospital, where I worked with war veterans and their families, a university counselling centre, and the Karen Horney Clinic in New York City, where I offered psychotherapeutic services to individuals of various cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. I completed my four-year psychoanalytic training with the Canadian Institute of Psychoanalysis in January 2021, and formally became a Psychoanalyst in July 2021.
