About

I am experienced in providing psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families experiencing a range of clinical issues including anxiety, mood disorders, relationship difficulties, parenting concerns, and trauma. My areas of expertise include the treatment of psychological trauma; anxiety disorders; eating disorders; and couple and family relationships. I work extensively with couples/families, First Responders (Police, Corrections, Paramedics, Fire Fighters, Veterans) and individuals who have experienced childhood abuse/neglect and other forms of psychological trauma. I also provide Clinical Supervision for new/practicing RSWs.
I use an attachment and trauma informed lens in providing a range of evidence-based approaches including Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Attachment Focused Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman Method, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).
I believe in the importance of authenticity, empathy, and compassion in my work. I take a client-entered and collaborative approach, working with clients to reach their identified goals, gain insight into the factors and experiences that have contributed to their difficulties, and to achieve a sense of agency and fulfillment in their lives and relationships.
