Welcome! I'm glad you have taken this first step to self improvement through therapy. I understand that starting therapy can seem overwhelming and I am here to help you every step of the way and to make you feel comfortable from the moment you read this. 
I am a Registered Social Worker through the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Social Development Studies, Bachelor of Social Work, and my Masters of Social Work through the University of Waterloo and the University of Windsor. As a Registered Social Worker I strive to walk alongside my clients and act as a guide in the journey to successful life outcomes. I never underestimate the power of humour and believe that self-driven goal setting in a safe and non-judgmental environment is key to creating change. I approach my work through a client-centered approach and am driven to provide concrete coping skills & tools to improve interpersonal relationships, and to work toward general life satisfaction and success. During my masters program, I completed a placement at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre, leading CBT based psycho-educational programs for those struggling with various mental health challenges such as depression and anxiety. I also completed part of my placement within the inpatient mental health department at RVH. I have 3.5 years of experience in child protection providing support to families, individuals and couples experiencing ongoing verbal and physical conflict, challenges in parenting, mental health, substance misuse issues and other life challenges. I work with clients ages 7+ and specialize in challenges including parenting, familial conflict, intimate partner relationships, depression, anxiety, stress management, trauma, coping skills and more. I am trained in the Gottman method of couples counseling and believes in tailoring my counseling approach to the individual couple. 
A good relationship with your therapist is essential to helping you heal and get the most out of your therapy experience. I am committed to providing you with the help and support that you need and deserve. Lets see if we're the right fit. I offer a free, no obligation consultation to ensure I am a good fit to walk this journey with you. 
I offer in person availability on Saturday & Sunday and weekday evenings upon request. I also offer virtual appointments. Please feel free to check out my office website or call 705-503-9699 or email to book your appointment today!
