I am an empathetic, compassionate, down-to-earth therapist. Whether it is OCD, anxiety, depression, psychosis, or general life stressors affecting your mood and day-to-day functioning, I am here to figure it out with you.
I will collaboratively and non-judgmentally work with you to uncover your own strengths and employ them (as well as provide you with new tools) to overcome this tough period.
Through my years of working with individuals experiencing a wide spectrum of challenges, I have come to see that we, as humans, have incredible and unique strengths to overcome adversity - but there are times when intrusive negative thoughts are so loud, or life stressors are so plentiful - that it is very easy to feel completely overwhelmed and lost. You may even worry that these distressing feelings will last forever. Let's get you feeling like yourself again.
I come from a strengths-based perspective and very much tailor the tools and approach I use to the individual I am working with. This means that while we will no doubt utilize evidence-based approaches to guide us in our work together, my approach with you will very much be centered around your unique history, challenges, needs, and strengths.
I incorporate elements from the following evidence-based therapies in my practice: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, Trauma-Informed Therapy and Mindfulness.
I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW) with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW).
I have a Master of Social Work Degree from York University and a Bacherlor of Arts (B.A.) degree from Western University.
