I’m a student enrolled in the final year of my Master of Social Work at Wilfrid Laurier University. Prior to this, I completed my undergraduate studies in psychology and philosophy at Queen’s University. I come to this work with over eight years of experience supporting BIPOC and 2SLGBTQIA+ communities, newcomers, migrant workers with precarious status, and people living with anxiety, depression, trauma, and low self-esteem. I’ve worked with individuals to examine what core beliefs they’re holding onto that aren't theirs, and to build fulfilling relationships with themselves and others.
My identity as a racialized woman and first-generation immigrant has informed my motivation to become a therapist that allows people to honour their whole selves throughout their healing. Personally and professionally, my values are rooted in decolonial and social justice lenses. While prioritizing your specific goals in therapy, I strive to maintain awareness of the cultural and political factors that directly impact mental health.
I highly value the quality of the therapeutic relationship, and my approach focuses on co-creating safe and supportive spaces based on curiosity and non-judgment. I believe you’re the expert of your own life, and my goal is for you to feel deeply affirmed and understood in your multifaceted experiences.
I use an eclectic approach and draw from modalities such as acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, attachment-based therapy, internal family systems, and more. I believe in wholistic approaches to wellness that emphasize self-compassionate practices, and the connection between the mind and body.
Outside of work, I love cooking, dancing, going to spin classes, and watching comforting TV shows.
Seeking support can be incredibly vulnerable. It would be an honour to support you exactly as you are throughout this process of healing and growth.
