Currently accepting new clients. SISU is a Finish concept reflective of the tenacity and determination which sustains us through difficult times and brings us towards hope and growth for the future. The impact of the difficult and traumatic experiences in life is what we will navigate through together. For over 30 years, I have developed my skills and knowledge working with those in conflict with the law (forensic psychiatry), mental health and addictions, and individuals impacted by sexual violence. I have a special interest in working with men's mental health, religious trauma/abuse, and clinical supervision services.
I am a therapist who approaches my work through a trauma informed perspective alongside perspectives such as attachment theory, narrative, somatic and mindfulness. I am an Approved Clinical Supervisor and Registered Clinical Social Worker (RCSW). I support post-secondary students, frontline professional workers and those in high impact environments.
Therapy is a huge step as is finding a therapist you connect with. I bring a warm, lighthearted, informed and a non-judgmental approach to the work I do. Reach out and let's talk! I offer both in person and virtual sessions. Open to speaking opportunities. Evening and Saturday appointments available.
