I have been a practicing psychotherapist for more than 25 years. I’ve practiced in various parts of Ontario Michigan and in the Philippines. Currently I practice in Toronto, Ontario.

I have work experience in the following:

  • Domestic violence
  • Child protection
  • Developmental disabilities
  • intensive care
  • Palliative care
  • Community health care
  • Community mental health
  • Cross cultural adjustment and relocation


I’m married to John Suk. We have 2 sons, a daughter-in-law, 2 GRANDCHILDREN! a long term foster daughter, and a foster grand-daughter. We love our family and are totally delighted when our kids come home for a while! (But while we loved parenting, we love our empty nest even more!)

Like most everyone my personal life has been affected by major stresses and family issues. I am no stranger to the particular concerns that my client couples bring to me. Feel free to ask me more about this if you wish.

When it is sought after, my clients value my spiritual depth and insight. I’ve been shaped by a Judeo-Christian worldview. Clients from differing perspectives are pleased that I’m respectful and appreciative of their approach to life and spirituality.
