Welcome! I am a social worker / psychotherapist with over twenty years' experience in hospital and outpatient settings working with adults (age 18+). If you live anywhere in Ontario, I can support you in overcoming depression, anxiety, difficulties with self-esteem, trauma, sleep problems and managing chronic pain. I have guided hundreds of clients in shifting unhelpful thinking patterns and emotional / behavioural responses, managing stress and developing a more effective, self-affirming approach to everyday life. Engage your inner wisdom and strength and learn skills to promote emotional healing and in making positive change!
I have a non-judgmental, empathetic and trauma-informed approach to therapy. My training is primarily in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and in Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), with elements of other modalities, such as Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Motivational Interviewing.
In deciding to engage in therapy, you have already taken an important step towards healing! Each of us experiences challenges, sometimes because of circumstances in the past. Together we can work towards the positive change you are seeking to help you feel better and be more effective in everyday life. I look forward to being a part of your journey!
