Currently, I am most interested in working with children who find it hard to manage big feelings, with families experiencing transitions due to changes in gender identity or sexual orientation, and with teens & adults interested in making changes to their substance use who are experiencing symptoms of severe and persistent mental illness.
We all need help getting through tough times in life. With over 10 years of direct service to children, youth, and families, I have had the privilege of working with people from many walks of life. Holding a Bachelors and a Masters degree in social work, I use a flexible approach that is trauma-informed, goal-directed and evidence-based. I have supplemental trainings in cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational interviewing, dialectical behaviour techniques, and attachment-based therapy. I provide psychotherapy services to children, youth and adults in English and in French.

I have worked with individuals managing various challenges such as, but not limited to: substance use and addiction, homelessness and poverty, intimate partner violence, .
I became a social worker because "your life is worth my time.” This is something I live by as I value each and every client I have had the opportunity to work with. I always feel blessed to join clients on their journey towards healing and wellness, and it takes immense bravery to take that first step and reach out for help. I work hard to create an environment that fosters safety and growth, and approach my practice from a strengths-based, anti-racist, collaborative lens. I have also begun the process of becoming trained in Brainspotting and have completed Phases 1 and 2.

If you are reading this you have already taken the scariest step; recognizing that you want help and support from a counsellor. Sometimes life gives us more than we can handle alone. It can be difficult for individuals to have healthy self-image and compassion, especially after experiencing disappointment, loss and trauma. Everyone has their own story that caused them to be in the place they currently are. And sometimes parts of our story interfere with us being able to move forward.

Reaching out for help is not only courageous, it is a statement about wanting more out of life. Change can be hard and almost impossible when you try to do it on your own. Talking about your challenges with someone outside of your social circle and looking at the problem from a different perspective can be very helpful. I believe success in counselling is a result of being open to trying something new. Successful counselling also requires a goodness of fit between the person seeking help and the counsellor providing the support.

You feel overwhelmed and even the smallest things set you off. You can't sleep because mom guilt, racing thoughts, and self-doubt keep you awake at night. You knew becoming a mom would have its ups and downs, but you didn’t expect to totally lose yourself in the process. You love your baby more than anything, but you can't help but miss the freedom you used to have. You try to act like things are fine. You smile and say “I’m great” when people ask how you are doing, meanwhile inside you are hurting. You've never felt more alone. You wonder if things will ever get better and if you will feel like yourself again.
