Helping has always been my passion and my goal in counselling is to meet the client where they are in life.
I began my helping career in 2003 as a Paramedic in Ontario and in 2018 I realized that my professional experiences were leading me to a new path. I returned to grad school and obtained my Master's degree in Counselling Psychology.
I work from a client-centered, feminist informed, approach focusing on the unique life and skills that each person brings to our sessions.
I have worked with First Responders, survivors of sexual trauma (recent and/or historic), individuals living in active or recovering addiction, and people who have experienced a range of trauma. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship, and my focus in my practice is on DBT and attachment theory-informed, positive psychology. My role is to support you in your life journey in a curious, non-judgmental way.
I am an LGBTQ+ ally, and I aim to work from a place of anti-racism and anti-oppression, recognizing and honouring the impact of each individual person’s interaction with the world and society in which they live.
I am registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario as a Registered Psychotherapist (#10009), and a Certified Canadian Counsellor with the CCPA
