I have been working with clients in the mental health field since 2014, and have a wide range of experience with different client issues. I have worked both in private and community based treatment facilities.

I use a trauma informed, client centered and harm reduction approach in my work with clients, collaboratively working together to create goals throughout the therapeutic process. I firmly believe that a strong therapeutic alliance between therapist and client is an important aspect of this work and a contributing agent of change, and therefore, I work hard to create a safe, and non-judgmental environment for those that I work with.

I tend to use the types of therapies below; however I am versed in many different techniques.
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
  • Mindfulness Based Therapies
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Single Session and One-at-a-time therapy
  • Brief Therapy
  • Dialectical Behaviorual Therapy
Areas I specialize in:
  • Anxiety/Stress/Worry
  • Depression
  • OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
  • Personality Disorders
  • Guilt and Shame
  • Problematic Anger
  • Grief/Bereavement
  • Post-traumatic Stress

Registered Psychotherapist

I have been practicing as a therapist since 2012. I have worked in school boards and in community mental health agencies as a Psychotherapist and Psychometrist.

My approach to therapy utilizes an attachment, trauma and cognitive explanations to human emotional, physical and behavioural suffering. Each individual client is different; therefore I customize every approach and intervention to the needs of each individual. With clients I provide a non-oppressive environment, where I provide unconditional positive regard to allow clients the space to do the work they have come to do.

My post graduate academic work has mainly focused on Mindfulness, Rational-Emotive Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Trauma informed therapy and Attachment based interventions.
