Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology and kinesiology and a doctorate in chiropractic. I started my career providing chiropractic and wellness services, then worked in absence management and quality assurance. I have volunteered on the Distress Centre of Greater Toronto crises and suicide lines.
My relationship with those I work with is based on trust and warmth. This creates a respectful, safe, and compassionate environment to be heard, understood, and valued. My holistic approach is rooted in the mind-body connection, is sensitive and responsive, and recognizes that everyone is unique and has different healing needs. I draw from acceptance and commitment therapy, person-centered, emotion and compassion focused, trauma-informed and narrative therapies. My commitment to personal and professional development is ongoing.
We all possess inner strength and resources that can shift us toward change, personal growth, and resilience. I will help you explore and gather insight into areas where you feel stuck, self-critical, and insecure. We will work together to help you clarify your goals and patterns and build adaptive strategies to improve satisfaction in your life and relationships.
I look forward to hearing your story.
