About Zoë

Being a Psychotherapist has been a life-long dream of mine, and I am very passionate about my work. Although being with people in difficult times can be challenging, it is a challenge that I welcome. The rewards, bearing witness to people making sense of their stories and building more fulfilling lives, are tremendous.

I treat my clients with care, empathy and respect. I also very much enjoy my work. I would welcome the opportunity to work with you, or just to meet for an initial consultation to help you decide if you would like to work with me.

I studied Psychotherapy at the Toronto Institute of Relational Psychotherapy (TIRP). I also believe that my own personal growth work, and my experience of being a client in Psychotherapy, greatly informs how I work. I try to treat my clients as I would like to be treated by my Therapist.

In addition to my TIRP training, I have experience in trauma recovery, including healing from childhood sexual abuse (with most experience in male CSA survivors), as well as with secondary survivors of trauma (those people who have a close relationship with a survivor).

I also have a BSc. in Anthropology, and am a Mother.

I have been seeing clients, under supervision, since October 2012.

I am LGBTQ friendly.

I am a clinical member of the Canadian Association of Psychodynamic Therapy and I abide by its code of ethics.

I am also committed to continually expanding my knowledge-base and furthering my understanding of psychotherapy in order to strive to be the best psychotherapist I can be.
