Besides, my current practice emphasizes the assessment and treatment of individual counselling and psychotherapy, Marital and couple counselling, separation and divorce, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, MVA, and WSIB. My assessment includes a comprehensive psychological, psychoeducational, and psychosocial evaluation. I apply individual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy), Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Short-term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy for a range of psychological difficulties such as personality disorders, depression, anxiety, phobias, trauma, PTSD, and compulsions.
