Learning is of utmost importance to me to effectively provide concurrent knowledge to my clients. Currently, I’m working towards my Doctorate in Higher Education and Leadership EdD (c) with Capella University. I hold a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from Wilfrid Laurier University and I am a member in good standing (RSW) of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW). In addition to my formal education have continued in my pursuit of expanding my professional development folder. Most recently Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as well as other therapeutic modalities that will help guide my work with clients.
My counselling style is inclusive of the whole-person, strengths-focused, and client-centered. We will work to address your present life challenges while integrating your past experiences. My services are suitable for individuals, youth, post-secondary students, couples, and families that are feeling overwhelmed by their thoughts, emotions, behaviours, and life experiences. I specialize in the treatment of Depression, Panic Attacks, Anxiety, Negative Thought Patterns, Hoarding, and Trauma-related disorders.
Most importantly, I am a genuine, authentic, knowledgeable, and compassionate person. I believe that people are the experts in their own lives and through the therapeutic process I will help, you work through life’s challenges in hopes of living a more fulfilling life. In my personal time, I love spending time with and connecting with family/friends and my two dogs. I love to stay active through Cross, health, and wellness, and spending time in nature.
