If you are seeking assistance for a mental health issue you are brave to be taking the first step by looking at my website. Often, the hardest part when deciding to look for a therapist is finding the right therapist. Someone that you feel you can speak to with openness. This is often called “having a good therapeutic fit”.
I have worked with people from all different walks of life. As a social worker, my services are anti-oppressive and do not discriminate. My goal is to provide you with a safe space to speak about whatever issue you may be needing assistance with at this time. My experience includes working with individuals, couples, and families. I have expertise treating:
- grief and loss
- mood disorders
- trauma and abuse
- anger management
- chronic pain
I also provide therapy services to individuals who have not been diagnosed with a mental illness but are seeking counselling services or coaching for other reasons such as a transitional time in life, for instance, a divorce, exploration of sexual identity, workplace injury, or a health related diagnosis such as cancer. I provide a recovery-oriented, strengths-based perspective and strive to assist clients to empower themselves.
“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.”
As a Registered Psychotherapist, my services are regulated under the Psychotherapy Act 2007 and by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I am also a Registered Social Worker with the College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. The college protects the public interest by regulating the practice of social work.
As a registered social worker or RSW, my services are covered under many employee benefits programs.
