I am a Clinical Therapist with a Bachelor of Psychology from York University and a Master of Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University. Life brings us many challenges and I believe everyone’s experience in dealing with these challenges is unique. We will collaborate to determine what coping strategies, goals, and helpful tools are best suited to your experiences. I practice from a place of compassion, understanding, and positivity to create a safe space for you. I have worked with individuals living with anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, low self-esteem, trauma, grief, and substance use. Building trust and rapport with you is important to me; therefore, my approach is person-centred, trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, and holistic. By using techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Positive Psychology, and Mindfulness, I will help empower you to be the expert in your own journey to a peaceful life.
Apart from my career, I enjoy mindfulness meditation, exercise, art, nature, travelling and spending time with loved ones. And, lately, a lot of TV!
