Diploma, Centre for Training in Psychotherapy; Clinical Member, Canadian Association of Psychodynamic Therapists


I have had a life-long interest in spirituality and psychology. I studied comparative religion at Dalhousie University in Halifax, and received my diploma from the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy in Toronto. I have been seeing clients since 1998. I have a specific interest in Buddhism, meditation, integral spirituality, integral theory (as defined by Ken Wilber), trauma treatment, self psychology, intersubjective psychology and attachment theory. I am very interested in the integration of Buddhism and psychotherapy: I use Buddhist ideas with clients who are interested in this. In this regard I also find Wilber's model of levels and lines to be valuable in understanding why spiritual growth and enlightenment do not necessarily lead to emotional growth and change. I would be happy to talk with prospective clients about why I believe this to be the case. For information and links to writings by Wilber, please see www.kenwilber.com/professional/writings/index.html.

I enjoy working with clients who have multicultural backgrounds and have experience with clients of Italian, Croatian, Serbian, East Indian, and Chinese descent.

I hope you will contact me so that we may begin a life-changing journey together.
