I am a clinical social worker providing psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families who are struggling to make sense of life and the challenges they face. I have been in the field for the past ten years, and am passionate about helping people find meaning and purpose in their life. I have always been drawn to people’s stories, their courage, resiliency and hope, and I am grateful to be able to support people on their journey. I bring compassion and creativity to the therapeutic relationship and work in a collaborative manner with my clients to gain insight to the root of the problem. I received my MSW from McGill University, and my Bachelors of Music Therapy from Wilfrid Laurier University. I have additional training in mindfulness based cognitive therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy. My areas of expertise are in loss and grief, chronic illness, depression, anxiety, stress management, relationship issues and parenting.
My approach is client centred, which means that I will meet you at a place that is comfortable for you. Through offering a safe, non-judgemental environment, I will help you to see that you are the expert of your own life, and support you to identify your inner strengths and resources. I come to psychotherapy from an attachment based, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive perspective and draw from modalities such as mindfulness based practices, narrative therapy and solution focused therapy, among others. Whenever possible, I encourage creativity and draw from expressive arts therapies.
When not at the Healing Collective, I work as a counsellor at YouthLink, providing counselling to youth up to age 24 and their families. In my free time I love playing with my toddler, singing, and reading cookbooks. I offer free 20 min phone consults. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can start talking and see if we are a good fit. I look forward to meeting you!
