I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), membership #009101. I am currently accepting new clients for both in-person and online therapy!
First of all, I would like to acknowledge how brave you are for taking the first step and considering therapy! I view therapy as a journey of growth and my goal as your therapist is to help you feel empowered to live your most authentic life. With gentle guidance, I will help you gain self-awareness and self-compassion, as well as create an empathetic space for you to build positive internal dialogue and self-acceptance. As your therapist, I will help you re-structure maladaptive beliefs and assumptions that you have made about yourself and the world due to your past experiences, and help you identify your unique strengths and resilience to support you in creating a meaningful life that you deserve.
I have over five years of experience working with youth, adolescents, and adults with mental health and behavioural concerns, in a variety of different capacities. I have a particular passion for helping others heal their mind and body from trauma in order to develop authentic and healthier versions of themselves.
Outside of work I enjoy music, the outdoors, and staying active with my husband and our children!
I personally take a holistic approach to wellness that focuses on the mind, body, and spirit. Therapy doesn't have to feel stigmatized or old-fashioned; I am continuously striving to learn about and implement modern and creative ways to enhance the therapeutic process and healing journey for my clients based on scientific evidence and proven effectiveness. When it comes to your own wellbeing, I will empower you to empower yourself as I believe that healthy individuals create a healthier community and world in general.
As someone who values authenticity, I try to keep it as real and transparent as possible. I believe in shared power opportunities between therapists and clients and I will tell you that as your therapist, I "get it". By that I mean I get what it feels like to dive deep into your inner wounds and explore painful experiences within a therapeutic context. As a trauma survivor myself, I am extremely passionate about helping others along their healing journey. I see you, I hear you, and I am here to support you.
