Hello and welcome!
Thank you for stopping by to get to know me and taking the steps towards your healing.
I truly believe that therapy is a journey of healing and unfolds gently over time. We will work together to develop goals that are unique to you and towards your mental well-being. During therapy, I strive to create a safe, authentic, and comfortable space where we can foster a trusting relationship. I will encourage an environment for you to learn new strategies and coping skills, and to discover your inner strengths to empower yourself.
As a registered social worker and psychotherapist, I am trained and experienced in working with adults, seniors, caregivers, people of colour, and provide support to families who are caring for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I have over 10 years of experience working in the community to support families experiencing:
- Grief and Bereavement
- Stress and Anxiety
- Caregiver Burnout
- Intergenerational Trauma
- Social Isolation
- Racism and Oppression
In my practice, I use elements of:
- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
- Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
- Narrative Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
- Strengths Based Approach
- Anti-Oppressive Approaches
Outside of my practice, I manage a caregiver support program for families who are caring for their loved ones who have an intellectual or developmental disabilities. I also teach in the Department of Social and Community Services at Humber College. I am a strong advocate for ensuring that everyone has equitable access to the proper resources and services, and narrowing the gaps between clients and health care provision.
I offer a 20-minute complimentary phone or video call so that we can get to know each other and see if we would be a good fit. I am available throughout the days and evenings from Tuesday to Sunday. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to meeting you!
