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
