About Polly

I have been a mental health professional in a variety of settings for almost two decades. Since 2013 I  have dedicated myself to supporting individuals and couples in my private practice.

It remains my privilege to witness the power of psychotherapy to heal and transform. Hearing clients tell me that they feel more at ease with themselves, more present in day-to-day life and more connected in their relationships is why I am passionate about my work.

After living and working in downtown Toronto for 15 years, I relocated my practice to the tranquil setting of the Blue Mountains in 2018.  

Please see the FAQ page if you want to read more about my credentials, why I chose to be a psychotherapist and what I love about this work.

Individual Psychotherapy

Individual therapy sessions are a non-judgemental, supportive and confidential space in which to resolve past issues, develop a deeper understanding of yourself, and foster self-acceptance.

This valuable process promotes a release from damaging reactive patters such as exploding in anger, collapsing in shame, or constantly worrying about the future.  This shift then creates the opportunity for new responses which promote a fuller and more engaged experience of life.

Couple Psychotherapy

I practice Emotion-Focused Couple Therapy which is an evidence-based, structured approach to couples therapy formulated in the 1980s and developed alongside the science on adult attachment and bonding.

A substantial body of research outlining the effectiveness of EFT now exists (Reference)
