About Me

profile pic.png
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

A person of many interests, I bring a wide range of experience to the profession, including working with clients from diverse cultural backgrounds, supporting individuals (and their families) through traumatic experiences, violent offender rehabilitation, and working with children and adults with developmental differences.

As a clinician, my main areas of practice include trauma, grief, loss, anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationships, and self-esteem issues. My aim is to use my experience and knowledge to help my clients achieve their goals and overcome life's obstacles by untangling the knots of thought and feeling that hold them in place.

 

In regard to my therapeutic approach, my work has a foundation in Narrative Therapy and Positive Psychology, but incorporates aspects of  various psychotherapeutic modalities, including Cognitive-Behavioural, Solution-focused, Somatic Experiencing, and Gestalt. In practice, my work often begins with helping clients understand how the lens through which they see the world impacts their experience and what they feel capable of. Next, we work to breakdown how their specific lenses were developed throughout their lives, so they can understand those lenses as habitual coping mechanisms and not unchangeable aspects of their identity. Finally, and in collaboration with the client, we develop practical actions that can be taken to shift modes of thought and lead to a greater level of life fulfillment. 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, biking, playing with my dog Bongo, and being consistently disappointed by the Toronto Maple Leafs.
