For over 10 years, I have been working with individuals and families, helping them find their own solutions to the obstacles and roadblocks preventing them from living their best life. As a therapist, I listen to my clients and help them develop the tools they will need to build a strong foundation for personal growth, such as increased self esteem, problem solving skills, coping skills and positive self talk.
Therapy can be a valuable road-map on the journey towards self-love. It can help you reconnect with yourself, your family and your inner circle, to achieve a happy, balanced life.
Since completing my Masters of Social Work at the University of Toronto, in 2006, where I specialized in Health and Mental Health, I have worked with homeless populations, displaced families, youth with brain injuries, individuals and families facing major life transitions (Divorce, Relocation), and those struggling to overcome anxiety, fears and depression.
Currently I support children, youth, young adults, individuals and families struggling with:
Anxiety Disorders, Panic attacks and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Post Work Traumatic Stress Disorder (PWTSD)
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Feelings of being stuck, procrastination and trouble getting things done
Lack of motivation, lack of direction in life and/or always feeling tired
Low self-esteem and/or general stress and coping
Problem relationships with family and/or peers/colleagues
Major life changes – Divorce, Break-ups, moves, graduation etc
Career and Future Planning
Health Related Anxiety
Lack of boundaries or unhealthy boundaries
I offer in-person and online counselling services to my clients.
It is my belief that therapy is not "one size fits all" and therefore it must be customized to each individual and family.
For this reason, I have received training and certification in many therapeutic models and styles, including;
-Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
-Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA)
Most health insurance plans cover the services of a Registered Social Worker. Check with your Human Resources office to determine if you are eligible for coverage. I continue to be a member in good standing with the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OCSWSSW), the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW) and the Canadian Association of Cognitive Behavioural Therapists (CACBT). This ensures that I am fully licensed and competent in my field. I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to live their best life.
