About

You deserve support to achieve your full potential, live well, reach your goals, and heal from trauma. That’s where I come in as a clinician, advocate and specialized system navigator. I can ensure you and your loved ones are getting services that will improve you quality of life immensely. Throughout twenty-years of clinical experience, I have counselled folks dealing with domestic violence, finances, depression, anxiety, addictions, coping issues, family conflict, gender and sexual identity, life transitions, parenting, relationship issues, self-esteem, stress, emotional regulation, trauma, and more.
I am a Registered Social Worker and my formal education includes a Masters of Social Work and Honours Bachelors of Arts Degree in Psychology and Women’s Studies. My specialization includes complex needs and I have extensive experience supporting people navigating legal challenges (family, criminal, & immigration). Call me for a free 15 minute consult.
My person-centered, strength-based and eclectic methods based in CBT, ACT, narrative, attachment-based, solution-focused brief therapy, and trauma-focused offers you a compassionate, non-judgemental, empowering space. This is where we can delve into the barriers keeping you from self-actualization and collaboratively develop plans to see you thrive.
