My therapeutic approach with individuals and families rests on the conviction that everyone is doing the best they can at any given moment with the tools and resources they have access to. I am committed to empowering people as the “experts” of their own lives and helping them to tap into the skills and resources they already possess, which have become cloaked in varying shades of mental health concerns.
I provide a safe, respectful, and non-judgmental space to facilitate a supportive and collaborative conversation through which you may begin to (re)-connect with your most authentic self and perhaps begin to think about things in a different way.
I hold a Master’s of Social Work Degree from Wilfrid Laurier University, and I am a member in good standing of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers: www.ocswssw.org I have several years of experience working in mental health where I developed a passion for Narrative, Trauma-Informed, and Attachment-focused therapies, as well as Mindfulness-based interventions. I utilize a broad range of conventional, evidence-based, therapeutic interventions as well as more Eastern-based traditions, including yoga and meditation, where appropriate.
