I am committed to creating a safe and open therapeutic space for you to explore and express yourself. 

I work within a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive framework, providing person-centered, culturally sensitive therapy. I consider my approach integrative, drawing from various modalities, including CBT (Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy), Schema Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. My treatment specializations include Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Abuse, Life Transitions, Relationships, Family Conflict, and Work-life Balance.

From a young age, I have been fascinated with the human mind. This developed into a full-blown passion to enhance emotional health and well-being. I completed a Bachelor of Science, Specialist in Psychology at the University of Toronto and went on to pursue a Master of Education in Counselling and Psychotherapy, from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE). I am a firm believer in personal and professional development. Since graduating, I have engaged in various training opportunities to further my knowledge and skill set, including both Certificate programs in Trauma 1 and 2 at the Hincks-Dellcrest Centre, Mindfulness and Art Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.

I have over 8 years counselling, crisis intervention, and case management experience working with individuals, couples, and families. Presently, I work in private practice as well as part of a non-profit community agency in Durham, providing individual and group counselling to survivors of sexual violence. My clients have experienced sexual harassment, sexual assault (historical and recent), sexual abuse, intimate partner violence, human trafficking, childhood abuse (physical, emotional, psychological, sexual), developmental and complex trauma.

The benefits of psychotherapy with me include a safe, non-judgmental space to share your thoughts, emotions, and feelings, deeper insight into your relationships and your needs, enhanced emotional and mental health, as well as development of resources and coping skills to support you during transitions or challenging times.

My fee for individual therapy is $120 per 50 minute session. Our first session will be 80 minutes in length, to give us more time to discuss your presenting concerns, goals for therapy, and to explain how my services can support you. If you have workplace benefits or private insurance, it is likely that my services will be reimbursed. Receipts for insurance or income tax purposes are available. My office is conveniently located in the Upper Beaches, is TTC accessible, with plenty of parking. I serve clients in Toronto, Scarborough, East York, and neighbouring cities in Durham region.

Self-awareness and self-acceptance lead to growth and balance. You deserve to be healthy, happy, and fulfilled. The Key to the Universe is within your reach. I look forward to connecting with you on your journey.

Be well,
