 I have been trained to work with people who are experiencing a variety of challenges and concerns. Clients who come see me often express having challenges with:
  • Addiction
  • Self-confidence
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Identity
  • Negative self talk
  • Anger
  • Stress
  • Work
  • Relationships
  • Parenting

If you are experiencing any of the above challenges then know that you are not alone. I offer a safe, comfortable and non-judgemental working relationship for those I work with. 
 
My Approach:
 
I meet clients where they are at. Some people want to delve into their past and work through their childhood trauma while some people don't ever want to discuss that aspect of their lives. 
 
A typical first session is more of an "intake". Information is gathered as clients express what brought them to seek therapy and what they would like to "get out" of therapy. Sometimes clients like to do a lot of talking during this session and sometimes I'll ask a lot of questions. 
 
While most people perceive their time in therapy as a time to focus on and discuss their "problems", I utilize a strengths-based approach and will try to always understand what is still working well in people's lives. After a first session, I work with clients collaboratively to create goals, act on them and to gain a deeper understanding of both their inner and outer lives. 
 
Background: 
 
I am a friendly and easygoing person who enjoys building rapport with the people I work with. I have been told I have an ability to connect with people and help them feel at ease. I want clients to feel they have trust and confidence in my approach so I aim to be transparent at all times and am always open to feedback and direction from people I work with.
 
For the past ten years, I have worked in the areas of addiction, family services, community services and mental health. I believe most people directly or indirectly seek therapy to gain a deeper understanding of themselves. This is something I strive for in my own life and I aim to help people I work with towards gaining this also.
 

Training: 
 
I am a registered social worker with a Master of Social Work from the University of Toronto. Additionally, I completed my Honours degree in Philosophy at the University of Guelph. I have experience and training in modalities such as cognitive behaviour therapy, narrative therapy, the Gottman Method for couples, solution-focused therapy and existential therapy.
 
Professional Memberships:
