About

Are you feeling lonely, overwhelmed and tired? Struggling with the “new normal” from the pandemic. Wondering whether you should stay in your current relationship or how to improve communication with your partner? I work with diverse populations. When working with couples/families experiencing conflict, communication problems and stress, I use a systemic, humanistic, person-centered and structural/strategic family approach with a focus on family resilience. When working with individuals experiencing mental health, addictions and/or trauma, I Apply Compassionate Inquiry approach, as well as Mindfulness, CBT & DBT.
I have my Certificate in Couple and Family Therapy Studies from the University of Guelph. I am a R.S.W. and completed my MSW from U of T in 2010 with a specialization in children, couple and families. I have a BA in psychology and have been employed in mental health, addictions, child welfare and work with individuals, couples and families.
I will meet you where you're at, without judgment or expectation. My goal: to create a safe, compassionate and respectful environment where understanding, growth and connection is possible. "We were hurt in early relationship, which means that we're going to heal in relationship. Relationships can be grounds for healing when approached properly"-Gabor Mate
