About

For over a decade I have practiced in a variety of clinical settings including community treatment and hospital settings, specializing in the areas of depression, anxiety, substance use, and gambling. In particular, I have worked with transitional aged youth and adults from diverse backgrounds experiencing a broad spectrum of substance use and mental health challenges.
From an anti-oppressive, trauma Informed lens I utilize behavioural treatments including Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), as well as motivational interviewing, and solution focused interventions. Conversations often lead back to the themes of acceptance, resilience and self-compassion.
I believe that human connection is transformative. My approach to change is collaborative and compassionate, based on mutual respect and honesty. Together we will identify patterns in relationships and repetitive themes that keep you from meeting your goals and feeling satisfaction in your life and relationships.
