We all need support in navigating life’s hardships, which can leave us feeling stuck, alone and overwhelmed. I strive to create a safe, caring, collaborative and supportive environment for you to explore life’s hardships, while also encouraging you to recognize your strengths. It is important for me to create connection, understanding, compassion, empathy and self-growth in your therapeutic experience. My goal is to support you in developing tools and coping strategies, while also digging deeper to create understanding of the underlying origin of patterns and themes within your life that are no longer serving you.
I have worked with individuals facing varying life challenges and/or diagnosis, including borderline personality disorder, anxiety, depression, Autism, and ADHD/ADD. Additionally, I can support you through your experiences of grief, low-self esteem, life transitions, stress, parenting struggles, relationship concerns and trauma.
My approach to therapy is eclectic, client-centred, strength-based and collaborative. The eclectic approach allows me to integrate various therapeutic techniques that best address your individualized needs. I incorporate Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, The Gottman Method, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, and Mindfulness.
I have more than seven years of professional experience in the field of psychology, and I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with a Masters in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. I have a BA in Sociology from York University and an Autism and Behavioural Science graduate certificate from Seneca College. My educational background and experience has contributed to my understanding of mental health and neurodevelopmental disorders. Please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to support you on your journey.
