(She/Her Pronouns)

Welcome to The Healing Collective! Whether this is your first-time seeking support, or you’ve met with a therapist before, we are here to help.

I am a registered social worker and psychotherapist with over 20 years serving my community. I have worked with many people who have experienced issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as supporting people of colour, women, youth 12 and up, 2SLGBTQ+ and others experiencing trauma.

I am passionate about creating an empowering environment and will work with you using a collaborative, empathetic and authentic approach that prioritizes your goals around mental well-being.

I am skilled in various counselling modalities, including Solution-focused Therapy, Trauma-Informed, Feminist, and Anti-Racist/Anti-Oppressive Approaches, Cognitive and Dialectical Behaviour Therapies (CBT/DBT), Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness and have extensive experience in working with adolescents and adults to support them with concerns related to:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • relationships
  • boundaries
  • self-esteem
  • self-harm
  • suicidal ideation
  • trauma

Over the years, I have worked in a wide range of settings including education, health, and community social services. I currently teach in the School of Community Services at Seneca College and facilitate learning and advocacy on issues of social justice.

Outside of work, I love to go on hikes in and around Toronto, especially as the seasons change. I enjoy having green spaces in my home and have many plants that enjoy the sun as much as I do. I also have had many pets throughout my life, so I am always keen to share and learn about your pet parent adventures.

I am currently offering sessions via secure video conferencing and am open to discussing in-person sessions based on need. I offer 20-minute complimentary calls to ensure that we are a good fit.

I look forward to supporting you to explore issues, and identify strategies, and approaches to reach your desired outcomes.
