I am a Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist with 7 years of counselling experience. I hold a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Toronto, and completed trauma training through the Trauma Therapy Program at Women’s College Hospital. I have completed the following additional trainings: Internal Family System Therapy (IFS) skills and competencies, EMDR, Levels 1 & 2 Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), and 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. I have worked in hospital, community, Government, and academic settings.
I work relationally, integrating various therapeutic modalities, to facilitate self-led healing change. My approach is client-centred, strength-based, anti-oppressive and trauma-informed. My expertise is in addressing mental health concerns (e.g. anxiety, depression), the impacts of trauma, interpersonal conflict, low self-esteem, substance use difficulties, relationship challenges, and grief & loss.
I am committed to lifelong learning and continue to evolve personally and professionally. To maintain my professional accountability, I am an active member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) as well as the Ontario Association of Social Worker (OASW) and participate in regular clinical supervision.
