M.A. Counselling Psychology, B.A.(Hons)
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
Certified Gottman Method Couples Therapist
I have more than 18 years experience in the mental health field, and clinical expertise with trauma and disorders, including schizophrenia, mood disorders (depression and anxiety), and addictions. I also have experience working with families.
I operate from a trauma-informed framework and incorporate mindfulness practices into therapy sessions. I believe that it is important to take into account the whole picture when working with you -- this includes your mind, body and emotions.
I am EMDR trained, and a certified Gottman Method Couples Therapist, with trainings and certifications in tobacco addiction, DBT, CBT, Motivational Interviewing and Solution-Focused Brief therapy. I completed graduate studies at Yorkville University, and undergraduate studies at the University of Waterloo.
At home, I am a mother of three and have firsthand experience with the joys and challenges of raising a family.
I bring a warm and down-to-earth approach to all of interactions, and it's important to me that you feel at ease and comfortable during sessions. If you are struggling or hoping to improve your wellbeing, I am here to support you.
