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, EMDR and dialectical behaviour therapy. I have particular expertise and passion for working in the areas of loss/grief, perinatal/maternal mental health, and infertility; in addition to anxiety, depression and life/work balance.
Through offering a safe, non-judgemental environment, I will help you to see that you are the expert of your own life. My approach is client centered, and I will 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, solution focused therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy (among others). Whenever possible, I encourage creativity and draw from my background working with expressive arts therapies.
When not at the Healing Collective, I love hanging out with my kiddos, learning to play the cello, and reading cookbooks while I imagine delicious gourmet dinners that I won’t make.
I offer complimentary 15 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!
