About

I am a clinical social worker (MSW, RSW), and Psychotherapist with over 15 years of experience in the mental health field. Being truly present and providing a non-judgemental space for people to be heard is key in my practice. I work collaboratively with my clients to explore and work through life challenges that impact our health and overall well-being. I will work with you to draw on your strengths and resiliencies as you walk the journey of life with its ups and downs.
I specialize in anxiety, depression, self-esteem and trauma. I focus on life transitions including separation, bereavement, in/fertility, migration and relationship challenges. I am trained in Emotion Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy and Solution-focused Therapy.
I have learnt over the years, that the most important aspect of therapy is the connection between the therapist and the client. Please email me for a free 15-minute consultation.
