I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and an active member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I received my Master’s degree from the University of Toronto in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I also completed my undergraduate honours degree in Psychology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Outside of my clinical practice, I am actively engaged in several research initiatives involving emerging adulthood and life span adaptation.
Over the past decade, I’ve worked in a variety of treatment settings supporting individuals living with various mental health challenges and/or addictions. Some of these have included inpatient treatment settings, distress and crisis centres, private practice, government-funded organizations, and community clinics.
I view therapy as a collaborative experience where both the client and therapist work together to resolve conflict and achieve personal goals. My theoretical orientation can be described as an eclectic and integrative approach that combines aspects of various therapeutic modalities including psychodynamic models, CBT, DBT, and EFT among others. I tailor therapy toward individual needs and work with my clients to foster feelings of safety while still challenging them to work through areas of difficulty at an appropriate pace.
