I see the choice of engaging in psychotherapy as a way of reaching for the possibility of a better life. I honour the trust my clients place in me and am inspired by their ability to grow and adapt, even under challenging circumstances. I continue to engage in my own journey of self-discovery and growth, which enhances my ability to meet my clients with authenticity, presence and compassion.
I am a registered psychotherapist. I hold a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology and a Specialized Honours BA in Psychology. I have received post-graduate certification in Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT, EFTT), Mindfulness-Based Meditation in Clinical Practice, Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (Level 1), Structural Dissociation, and Ego State Therapy.
I have been providing psychotherapy since 2006. In addition to my private practice, I have worked for a university counselling centre, an employee assistance program (EAP) and a multidisciplinary pain clinic. I am a member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists (OACCPP).
