About

You know how sometimes in life we feel like we should just know how to deal? Well I have extensive experience working with people who have felt that way, and who feel like they are struggling sometimes just to make it through their days. I work with issues that are sometimes too difficult to talk about such as: professional burnout, vicarious trauma/compassion fatigue, caregiver burnout, relationship conflict that impacts personal and professional well-being, even suicidal thoughts. I am able to help to understand, and most importantly, help guide and support change in functioning and behaviour.
I incorporate an eclectic mix of humour and light heartedness with directive empathy in my therapeutic approach. I have over 10 years of clinical experience working at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and in addition, am a Clinical Assistant Professor (PT) at McMaster University, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences
