About

At Prevailing Minds, we bring together clinical skill and lived experience with mental health challenges. I’ve worked with individuals with mood disorders, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, substance use issues, and many, many other challenges. I help people discover and maintain their motivation to change. My work is very goal-oriented so you can tell if you are making progress in our work together. I encourage taking learning out of the clinic and into the community and home.
I have more than six years of front-line experience in various settings. I’m trained in various therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), exposure therapy, motivational interviewing, and existential approaches. I use my lived experience to inform therapy, while maintaining boundaries.
As I am a therapist who is open about my own lived experience, I hope that you will feel comfortable to share your challenges with me. I will always be honest and meet you where you are at, while also giving you a little 'push' if you need it. Contact me to have a free 20-minute discovery call to learn if we would be a good fit in working together.
