Coming to therapy takes a lot of courage and trust. I strive to create a therapeutic relationship that reflects this understanding and creates a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore themselves within the context of their own lives.
As a Registered Social Worker with the OCSWSSW, I utilize a client-centred approach and draw mainly on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to guide my work with clients. Noticing and naming our feelings is the first step to gaining more control over our bodies and learning to live a meaningful life that aligns with our values and goals. I also draw on Mindfulness, Solution Focused and CBT therapies within session to ensure that clients are receiving the treatment that best aligns with their presenting problems and personal preferences.
I work most frequently with people experiencing anxiety, relationship issues, family conflict, life transitions and have a special interest in working with clients struggling with self-identity and self-esteem. I also have experience working with individuals with Traumatic brain injuries and children and adults with developmental and physical disabilities.
Outside of the office you will find me spending time with my husband and son (and our dog Hank), playing sports and enjoying the outdoors.
