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.

  • 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:

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, which is free of judgement to allow one 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.
