About

I AM NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS.

I very much enjoy my work as a clinical psychologist, and have developed three areas of specialization with adults:  1) general mental health (depression, anxiety) or more challenging problems (PTSD); 2) Rehabilitation Psychology (returning to work, finding more meaningful work, managing pain better); and 3) couple therapy (focus on attachment and emotions).  Also, I include a focused intervention that helps each partner develop the ability to better express their feelings and needs.  I have found this approach to be very helpful over the years.

Summary

I AM NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS.

Based on observing many clients struggle to resolve their personal and interpersonal problems, as well as having an strong orientation for solving problems, I have come to the view that psychological imbalance is very common in people experiencing mental health challenges.  

Consequently, I have named my clinic Isorropia Psychology Centre, with the Greek word “Isorropia” meaning balance, equilibrium, stability.  Similarly, Eleanor Roosevelt once incisively wrote:  “To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.”
