I am a Psychotherapist and Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. I have a passion for working alongside clients who are feeling held back by their past experiences. By specializing in trauma, I support individuals living with anxiety-related disorders, personality disorders, PTSD, complex PTSD, moral injury, and more. I draw on many therapeutic approaches as it allows me to create an individualized treatment plan to support each person on their unique journey towards healing and recovery.

My practice incorporates a blend of various therapeutic approaches such as mindfulness, meditation, EMDR, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and somatic therapy. I recognize and value each person’s capacity for resilience and change. I am dedicated to creating a safe, non-judgmental environment to provide exceptional individual therapy. If you’re wondering if I can help you, please contact me and we can determine together if I am the right fit for you.

When I am not working, you can find me streaming the latest Netflix docuseries or outdoors playing with my dog, Stitch.
