I am providing services via confidential and virus-free video conferencing to residents of Ontario.
I am a clinical Psychologist who has been registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario since 1991. I have many years experience in psychotherapy, counseling, skills training, and consultation. Have a look through the website and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. It is easiest to reach me by email.
For many years prior to the pandemic, research has been conducted on the efficacy of psychotherapy provided remotely, and during the pandemic this research has increased. Conclusions are that for many issues, virtual (video or phone) therapy is as effective as in-person visits, and leads to better retention and lower dropout rates, due to the increased convenience and efficiency of virtual visits. A summary of these findings from the American Psychological association can be found here and here.
Clinical Psychologists have doctoral level training in psychology as well as extensive supervised clinical experience before they are eligible for registration with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. Psychologists are more extensively trained in human behaviour than are any other mental health professions. Because they are regulated by the College, Psychologists are highly accountable for their professional conduct.
