About Me

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and a member of the Canadian Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.

I completed my MSc in Couple and Family Therapy at the University of Guelph. I also have a Specialized Honours BSc in Psychology from York University. 

I am trained in Solution-Focused, Narrative, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy. I have also completed an intensive sex therapy training. More recently, I have completed a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) training and the Trauma Tier 3 training focusing on assessment and treatment of trauma. Furthermore, I draw on my own experiences with privilege and marginalization in my practice.

 

My previous clinical experience includes working with Children, Youth and Families in a Children’s mental health agency in Toronto and Milton. I have also worked as an independent contractor in a busy private practice collective in Toronto. Currently, I am working solely in my private practice seeing individuals, couples, families, and children.

Outside of being a therapist, I enjoy travelling to new places, learning new skills, trying new recipes, and spending time with my family, friends, and furry best-friend!

My Therapeutic Values

Client Centered & Colloaborative

Although I have knowledge and resources that I will be bringing to the table, you are still the leader in therapy and the expert on your own life. We will be working together to find ways to help you get to your goals

Non-Judgement

There will be no judgement, partiality, or biases towards anything you share in our sessions. I will accept you for who you are, unconditionally

 

 

 

 

Systemic Approach

I believe that we do not exist in a vacuum and that we are constantly being influenced by our environments. This is why it is important to consider the effects of various factors on our mental health and wellbeing. Ex. where we live, cultural and racial factors, education, etc.

The Relationship

Researchers have found that having a strong therapeutic relationship is an indicator of success in therapy. My hope is to foster a genuine, warm, and trusting connection with you 

Inclusivity

It is important to me for clients from all walks of life to feel comfortable and accepted in therapy, regardless of their race, culture, religion, gender identity, SES, or sexual preferences

Strength-Based

I wholeheartedly believe that you have knowledge, skills, tools and abilities that have helped you in difficult circumstances in the past and these will also help you get you closer to your goals

Priviliege & Power

Our social location and how much privilege and power we hold in society can influence and affect many areas of our lives. It is my hope that we can explore these issues in therapy 

Curiosity

Any pre-conceived notions and assumptions about who you are and what is important to you will be put to the side; Instead, I will be curious to hear about your individual experiences
