Individual Adult and Relational Therapist
My passion is working with individuals who initially seek emotional support and therapy for depression/anxiety, however, as we further explore we discover the initial injuries, feelings of inadequacies and abandonment issues. Saturated in negative thoughts, struggling with emotions and unable to share with their loved ones their inner feelings of despair, keeping them stuck and unable to make changes. I am skilled in Psychodynamic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Solution Focus Brief Therapy as well, I am a Certified Sex Therapist. I am an experienced listener, skilled at thought-provoking questions and not easily shocked and I understand the courage it takes for you to show up and share those dark moments.

“Listen–are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?” -Mary Oliver
Do you often feel consumed by or powerless to anxiety? If this sounds like you, we can work together to help utilize strategies that mindfully bring awareness to those feelings and towards understanding the root cause of them. I understand how hard it is to show up for yourself at times and appreciate the strength it takes to reach out when you need help. You will be in a safe, judgement free space, where you will feel supported, encouraged, and heard. I believe that all experiences in life can guide us and teach us lessons and I am here to help you work through those overwhelming and meaningful moments. Change starts from within, and as such I practice a holistic approach to wellness and growth. I have experience working with anxiety and depression and utilize mindfulness skills and Dialectical Behavior Therapy in practice.
Are you curious about exploring your sexuality? Do you want the opportunity to do so in a safe space? I am passionate about working with individuals’ who are part of the LGBTQ2S+ community and I want you to feel safe to learn, grow and thrive as an adolescent or adult queer or trans person. I will support you through your journey with coming out, sex, sexuality, and gender. The goal of therapy with me, whether you have been out for a while or are just beginning to explore your gender or sexual identity, is to be in a space that allows you to securely explore all the dynamic areas of your being.
Are you wondering how to support a loved one who is struggling with their gender or sexual identity? If you are the family member or friend of a person who is questioning or exploring their gender or sexual identity and you have questions or are struggling yourself, you would be in a safe space, with me, to explore those feelings.
Are you a teenager dealing with feelings of anxiety, stress, and depression? Are you struggling to share with others (your parents, friends, or peers)? In therapy, I can help you to examine your feelings and to work through them. I can guide you through ways of sharing with others, how to work through problems, build on your strengths, and to be more mindful in your daily life.
You never have to walk through life alone.
I have attained my Master of Social Work from the University of Windsor and I am a Registered Social Worker. I am committed to ongoing learning to broaden my scope of practice.

Individual Adult Therapist
As you begin your quest to find a therapist, I believe the key is finding a comfortable space and a
therapist with whom you feel safe to explore some of the most painful and challenging aspects in your
life. I believe that together we will be able to identify your needs and find effective ways to meet your
challenges. Allowing yourself to explore and grow is an essential ingredient in personal empowerment
My extensive professional history has allowed me to work directly with anxiety, depression, ADHD, grief,
bereavement, addiction, anger and other issues that may be affecting your day-to-day life. By using a
flexible approach to therapy and utilizing modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT),
Solution Focused Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy, I am able to tailor your therapy to what is
most effective for you. With the right type of therapy for you delivered in a comforting, welcoming
environment, let me guide you to make changes within yourself (and reach your goals).
