About

I am a registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist who aims to prioritize your overall wellness. I have over 10 years of experience in the field of mental health and addictions and have worked alongside children, youth, adults, families and their loved ones to provide support focused on recovery and care. I specialize in anxiety, depression, relationships, adjusting to life's transitions, addictions, and trauma. With over 5 years working alongside first responders, I also specialize in providing debriefing and emotional support to first responders and frontline workers and the unique stressors they may face.
My therapeutic approach is person-centered, narrative and strength based with a focus on a blend of emotional, cognitive and embodied strategies through research based therapy practices. I believe in the person being the expert of their own lives and working collaboratively together to improve your overall quality of life.
I welcome you to say hello. Taking the first step towards therapy begins with a conversation, one that is led by you. I invite you to take a few moments in getting to know me. We can explore your intentions of therapy and discuss what therapy means for you. I look forward to being a part of your step towards understanding yourself and others.
