About

I am enthusiastic about developing a therapeutic-relationship with you to empower you to manage mood disorders resembling symptoms of persistent and intense feelings of sadness, and low energy, as well as, excessive worry, anxiousness, and fears. I hold a Master’s degree in Social Work and clinical training in cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance & commitment therapy, solutions-focused therapy, and mindfulness. I am a clinical Registered Social Worker/Psychotherapist in good standing with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. I am also a member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers.
My approach to cognitive behavioural therapy employs various psychodynamic theory, coupled with family systems theory, strengths-based and person-centered therapy to get a comprehensive conceptualization of the environmental, thinking, emotional and behavioural patterns that are causing distress in people’s lives.
I understand the need for you to regain control of your mind, body, and spirit in order to feel safe, motivated, hopeful, worthy, and able to pursue your ambitions as you climb out of anxious and depressed mood into a life you desire and deserve. I am a firm believer that even broken crayons colour the same.
