When you're looking for a therapist - "fit" is absolutely key, and so I'm really glad you're reading this and learning a little about me. I have been working in mental health and therapeutic fields for over five years. This includes work as an Eating Disorder Team Lead at Bellwood Health Services, a Counsellor at Georgian College, experience with Catholic Children’s Aid Society, and other therapeutic work I have done teaching mindfulness meditation for over three years or through a number of not-for-profit organizations.
 
Throughout this time, my focus has been on treating maladaptive coping strategies that arise from experiences of trauma, depression and/or anxiety or other mental health and wellness challenges.  What does all that mean? It means I specialize in treating eating disorders, trauma and substance/behavioural addictions that come from deeper emotional or psychological challenges that someone may be struggling to deal with.
 

I also make sure I only use evidence-based approaches, backed by credentials and experience.
 I received my Master of Counselling Psychology (MA) from Yorkville University and I am a Registered Psychotherapist and Canadian Certified Counsellor in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, respectively.

 
I also have training and certification in the following areas:
  • Enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy training from Credo-Oxford
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Fundamental Skills from OISE at the University of Toronto
  • Introduction to DBT from Broadview Psychology
  • Cybercounselling: Level 1 from Therapy Online
  • Foundations of Mindfulness and Applied Specialization in Mindfulness certifications from the University of Toronto
  • MBCT 8-Week Group Participation and MBCT Basics from the Centre for Mindfulness Studies
  • ASIST Suicide Intervention from LivingWorks
  • Mental Health First Aid from The Mental Health Commission of Canada
  • I also have training in Cognitive Processing Therapy (for trauma) and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, from ECHO OCD.

 
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I received my Bachelor of Education from York University, which now helps to support my ability to teach individuals and groups, as well as my ability to work with adolescents. I also have 8+ years of experience working in marketing and digital media, giving me a sound understanding of what work looks like for most of my clients, and the types of challenges that come up in the average workplace. And who am I as a person? I love the outdoors; busy, active days; connecting with the natural world; spending time with family and friends; and I truly love learning about psychology, health, wellness and wellbeing and continually work to keep advancing my knowledge and skill.
