I am a practicing Psychotherapist and Registered Social Worker (OCSWSSW). My goal in therapy is to create a space from which you feel safe to explore what is hurting you or holding your back from the life you would like to be living.

As a practicing Psychotherapist and Registered Social Worker (OCSWSSW) my goal is to create a space from which you feel safe to explore what is holding your back from the life you would like to be living. I work primarily with the impacts of occupational stress, relational and childhood trauma, perinatal, postpartum and infant loss experiences, and working with other helping professionals. However, all parts and experiences are welcome! If your story includes parts that feel unfinished, burdened or stuck, than I am likely a good fit for you.

I work collaboratively with my clients primarily from an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy model. I am also trained in and use EMDR, somatic therapy, ego state therapy, attachment therapy, hypnotherapy, and mindfulness. Each of these approaches has their time and place in therapy and we work with your needs and preferences to determine best fit.

In addition to psychotherapy, I am an adjunct professor and I regularly facilitate workshops throughout Canada.

In my spare time, you can find me travelling, enjoying the outdoors, reading, and spending time with my partner, daughter and dog Otis.

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.
