My therapeutic approach with people rests on the conviction that we are all doing the best we can in any given moment with the tools and resources we have access to. Utilizing a collaborative, strength-based, anti-oppressive, approach, I support individuals to tap into the skills and resources they already possess, which have become compromised by varying shades of social, emotional, mental or spiritual challenges.
I provide a safe, respectful, and non-judgmental space to facilitate a supportive and reflective conversation through which you can begin to (re)-connect with your most authentic self and perhaps begin to think about things in a different way.
I also utilize mind-body approaches when appropriate, including yoga, mindfulness, and EFT-Emotional Freedom technique, otherwise known as “Tapping.” To read more about EFT, click here.
I hold a Master’s of Social Work Degree—with a clinical focus on individuals, families, and groups—from Wilfrid Laurier University. 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 some Eastern-based traditions, including yoga and meditation, where appropriate.
