I am a registered Social Worker in Ontario with a strong background in community-based mental health care. A key area of my experience is providing empirically supported individual and group therapy in the interrelated areas of addictions, trauma, and mental health. I have also had the honour of working with individuals experiencing more generalized emotional distress, including difficulties making sense of challenging life experiences, coping with painful thoughts, feelings, or situations, connecting with others, or living authentically.  

I believe that therapy and the therapeutic relationship can be a site of powerful healing. It takes courage and vulnerability to address the challenges we face in life, and the journey towards greater self-awareness and well-being is lifelong for each of us. As a therapist, my goal is to meet you wherever you may be in your unique journey, and to provide a supportive, non-judgemental, and compassionate space where we can work together to uncover the places where healing, change and growth can occur. 

As each person has unique experiences, strengths and challenges, I will always tailor treatment to meet your individual needs. Our work together might include looking at patterns and stances that may have made sense at one point in your life, but may no longer be working for you, processing and reclaiming meaning in your experiences, broadening connections and resources, and/or exploring new ways to relate to difficult thoughts and feelings, increase self-compassion, acceptance, and present-moment awareness, and discovering the potential of purposeful action that is aligned with your values in building a meaningful life.

Training and Approach:

I utilize an integrative and client-centered approach, tailoring treatment to meet your individual needs. My orientation is both strengths-based and holistic, aiming to build on your resiliencies and honour your mind, body and spirit in our work together. I also honour that people’s individual lives are situated within broader family systems and socio-economic political and cultural contexts with associated dimensions of power, privilege and oppression, and that people hold multiple and intersecting identities that influence their experiences. I place you as the expert on yours. I am committed to checking in regularly to ensure our work together remains aligned with your goals and needs. 

I am trained and experienced in a range of evidence-based approaches, which include acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), CBT and MBCT, schema therapy, brief solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, and attachment-based trauma informed modalities. I continually engage in professional development and training, with emphasis on third-wave therapies.

I have completed a Master of Social Work, a Bachelor of Social Work, and a Bachelor of Psychology from Carleton University. I completed a Master’s clinical internship at Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services, and two undergraduate clinical internships with Family Services Ottawa and Vesta Recovery Program for Women.

Professional and Community Involvement

In addition to my clinical background, I have an interest in promoting workplace wellness and effective non-profit governance, and have completed additional training in Strategic Human Resources Management and Non-Profit Leadership. I have been an active board of director on local and national non-profit boards for over 10 years, and have served on the boards of Ancoura, Fertile Future, and Vesta Recovery Program for Women. 

I also have 8.5 years’ experience in university teaching and student supports as a former Faculty Member with Carleton University’s School of Social Work, where I taught direct practice courses and coordinated the undergraduate field education program. I have worked individually with over 1500 students for career and education planning, providing me with a unique perspective on university student experiences. Other key areas of focus included building reciprocal and sustainable community partnerships and promoting best practices in student supervision.
