I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). I support my clients with a variety of issues and goals, and I have specialized training to work with anxiety, depression, sleep issues, relational issues, complex trauma, mood disorders, personality disorders, ADHD, OCD and PTSD.
You may be feeling stuck, overwhelmed, isolated, or as though you are spiraling downward. You may feel disconnected from the important people in your life. Or perhaps you have a deep wish to live more optimally from the inside out.
I can offer a warm and non-judgmental space where we can explore these issues together, and you can begin feeling safe from within.
I draw from a variety of styles, meeting you where you are at with empathy and ideas. I often incorporate things like nutrition, sleep, neuroscience, and nature resources so you can improve how you feel within yourself and in the world around you.
I am committed to bringing the most current, evidence-based approaches into the work we do. I therefore dedicate much of my time to ongoing trainings and certifications that respond to the needs of the clients I work with and care about.
I completed my graduate studies at Yorkville University and my undergraduate studies at McMaster University. My clinical practicum was completed in a trauma-focussed setting that supports disadvantaged adults and teens struggling with relational injuries, personality disorders, brain injuries and complex trauma.
Welcome! I look forward to working with you.

Beyond my Work:
I am very in tune with nature. I practice forest bathing for my own optimal wellness and love hiking and nature photography. I also have a special place in my heart for animals, especially huskies. I volunteer for a sled dog rescue and have a husky of my own that I adore.
