Social Worker, MSW RSW

Works With:

You are looking at this profile and that means you have taken the first step. You want help. The next step is to find a therapist that you feel comfortable with. Let me tell you a little bit about myself so you can decide if I would be a good fit. I have been a social worker for 23 years. I have worked in hospitals, private practice, long-term care homes, and rehab facilities across Ontario. I work from a place of non-judgement. I like to say if they had a meeting for functional families, no one would be there including me.

Anxiety, depression, and couples counselling are my specialties. I love providing science-based strategies for mood and anxiety and use Gottman techniques and Attachment Theory when I help couples work on their relationship. I also use cognitive behavioural therapy and narrative modalities.

I believe that we all have the strength to find our way out of what life throws at us and it is my job to coach you through that journey.

Prior to becoming a social worker, I worked in broadcasting and then corporate communications. I have my Master of Social Work, a Bachelor degree in Social Developmental Studies as well as a diploma in Broadcast Journalism. I am registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.

On a personal note, I have two adult children and two grandchildren and been married twice. I have lost my parents and a brother. Likely a hang-over from growing up in the military, I moved a lot throughout my adult life, and so I can safely say I’m pretty adaptable. I don’t really have any hobbies to speak of, although I did write a murder-mystery in 2013 which was published. Don’t go looking for it though, because it is out of print and the ones that are still out there are probably being used as coffee cup coasters. I have been half-way through the second book for years. I am at that age when a nap usually wins out over writing. I would, however, love to join a learn-to-run club so if you know of any, let me know.

I am not a particularly religious person but I do like this quote from Timothy II because it has gotten me through some tough times.

“For I was not given a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love, and sound mind.”
