I am a trauma and neurobiologically informed relational psychotherapist. In 2012. I was accepted to train with The Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy (TIRP); recognized by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. 

My career has taken me to the Pine River Institute where I was a residential youth counsellor for youth 13 to 19 struggling with addictive behaviours and often other mental health issues, and to Hospice Georgian Triangle where I was a Patient and Family support worker providing group therapy sessions and individual support to patients during their end of life journeys.

I love my work. The therapeutic relationship is a unique one. I appreciate that my clients bravely enter into their therapy and share the stories that are sometimes gruelling, confusing, and unknown. My clients have reflected back to me that they experience me as kind, thoughtful, helpful and easy to talk to. I can offer that I always approach my practice with an intent to attune to my clients with acceptance, curiosity and empathy. It is an experience that firmly establishes a secure base for my clients to land.
I provide relational, client-centred psychotherapy which is a process that can help you explore your feelings and life circumstances within a safe, confidential, non-judgmental and understanding therapeutic environment.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist 007005 CRPO. I am a member of the Canadian Association of Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT).
