I received a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honours in Psychology and Political Science from Dalhousie University. I then continued pursuing my passion for mental health, receiving a Master of Social Work from the University of Toronto, where I specialized in Mental Health and Health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In my practice, I utilize a client-centred, trauma-informed approach and have training in evidence-based therapeutic techniques including, but not limited to: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Solution-Focused Therapy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have experience working in clinical hospital and community settings with adults of all ages. I have expertise supporting individuals, couples and families with various mental and physical health concerns, adjustment and coping, life transitions, grief and loss, among others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I thoroughly enjoy helping humans understand their brains, including thought processes, emotions and behaviour. I am passionate about engaging with clients to work toward a deeper understanding of themselves and to develop insight into challenging circumstances and experiences. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I promise to provide an approach to therapy that is collaborative, genuine and nonjudgemental. I ensure that, together, your unique needs are met. I look forward to connecting with you!
