About

As a registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience, I offer individual counselling services to adults and teens. I specialize in anxiety, depression, relationship problems, stress management and life transitions. I am currently accepting new clients.

Through our work together, I will help you develop new ways of coping with the difficulties you are facing. I will also help you explore and understand some of the underlying core issues fueling your symptoms and influencing how you interpret the world around you e.g. feelings of inadequacy or feeling ‘not good enough’, feeling unlovable or worthless, guilt, shame etc.

After graduating from York University where I earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work, I completed training in various therapeutic models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for Anxiety and Depression, Interpersonal Training for Depression, Mindfulness based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Addictions Counselling, Motivational Interviewing, and Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples.

In my practice, I use a variety of evidence-based strategies and techniques that will help increase your motivation, improve communication skills, dial down your anxiety and help you to make meaningful, long-lasting changes in your life.

Raised in Toronto, I currently live with my husband, daughters and an easily excitable double doodle named Maisy.
