I believe the journey with clients is toward freedom. It is important for me that each client feels heard, seen, and understood from their perspective. Who I am is an important part of the therapy process. I believe that building a strong relationship of trust with a client is integral in their healing.
I specialize in working with young people, parents, couples, and their families. I place an emphasis on art and play therapy that allows young and old to explore their emotions even when they can’t seem to find the words.
I combine this with an integrated approach to therapy that includes EMDR (8 yrs +) , Interpersonal Process work, some CBT tools, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Mindfulness.
I hold a Master of Arts degree in Counselling and Spirituality and I am a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers (OCSWSSW).
In my nearly six years of counselling experience, I have come to understand that it is my privilege to hold other people’s stories and to be trusted to help them and their families heal.
