I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) in Bowmanville, Ontario. In 2003, after a traumatic workplace event, I learned first-hand how stressful events in our life can impact our body and mind, and result in uncomfortable, potentially devastating, symptoms. Approximately six months later, I felt that "something was wrong", I had an outburst in a meeting and thankfully had a person in my life at that time who gently told me that perhaps I needed to speak to someone. This incident, gave me an opportunity to notice, and begin the process of healing impactful stress events in my life.

The journey was fraught with set-backs and pain, but if I had not pushed through, I would not be where I am today. I did not journey alone - teachers, mentors, family and friends have supported and encouraged me, for which I am eternally grateful.

I graduated from Yorkville University in 2016 with a Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology and am a professional member of the CCPA, I am an Intermediate-level student of Somatic Experiencing® (a body based approach to healing trauma) and have additional training in Cognitive and Mindfulness-based Therapies.
