I believe that creating a positive and collaborative client-therapist relationship is fundamental to the healing journey. My philosophy revolves around helping to free clients from unhelpful patterns and ways of thinking in order to fully embrace the meaningful life they want to live. I have walked alongside people struggling with a wide range of mental health and life challenges and I take a particular interest in anxiety and trauma.
I have a Masters of Social Work and am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. Along with four years of experience in clinical counselling, I have also done post-graduate training and extensive additional study in a variety of evidence-based modalities (ACT, EMDR, CBT).
I enjoy watching clients learn to recognize their own strengths and find compassion for themselves. I am also very interested in helping clients heal through interactions with the natural world. I invite you to give our office a call!
