I am a registered clinical social worker and I have worked with individuals and families since 2002. My journey has led me to work with diverse sets of clients who have a variety of mental health issues. I enjoy helping people re-establish governance over their lives. I will provide you with a safe and compassionate environment to share your story and receive individualized care tailored to your specific concerns.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the foundation of progress in treatment and we will work together to build that trust and alter the negative dynamics in your life so that you can be content. At times treatment is difficult, and it may require changes that you had not considered. I am patient and will be tactful in helping you achieve your treatment goals.
I am registered with the College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and the Ontario Association of Social Workers. I use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Emotional Focused Therapy Narrative Therapy and the Gottman Method for couples counselling. In my practice I like to give special consideration to ethnic, racial, gender, social, and economic issues that impact the development of mental health issues. I encourage client evaluation and feedback so you can be assured that your perspective will always be incorporated. I welcome marginalized and LGBTQ+ individuals to consider me an ally in their access to treatment.
