About

I am a Registered Social Worker in Ontario and I provide in-person sessions in Owen Sound, as well as phone and video sessions across Ontario. I utilize CBT, DBT, Solution-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, trauma focused therapy, mindfulness, compassion-focused therapy, and other modalities. I love working with a wide variety of people and families. I am particularly passionate about working with preteens, teens, young adults, adults, older adults, LGBTQ2S+ individuals, and those struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, stress, family dynamics, relationships, life transitions, and spirituality.
My clients often say that they feel very comfortable around me, and that I am insightful and understanding. I pride myself on providing my clients with a comfortable setting while purposefully navigating their stressors and concerns alongside them, so they can make sense of things, find their 'hidden' strengths, and feel validated and empowered.
I always say that pursuing therapy takes courage and that it is a worthwhile endeavour that every human can benefit from. If you are considering starting therapy and you think we might be a good ‘fit’, I'd love to hear from you. Just shoot me an email or voicemail and we can set up a time for a phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
