WAITLIST FOR NEW CLIENTS
I am a registered Social Worker and hold a Master of Social Work degree from Wilfrid Laurier University. I also hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology: Brain and Cognition with Honors from the University of Guelph. I have varied experience working closely with children, youth, and adults over the last 9 years. Specifically, I have over 3 years of experience providing psychotherapy to youth and adults struggling with addictions, trauma, anxiety, depression, acute and chronic emotional dysregulation, self esteem issues, parenting struggles, and more.
I approach my work from a trauma-informed lens and deeply value the importance of creating a safe, nonjudgmental, and welcoming space for all. It is my goal to provide everyone I work with, the opportunity to express their true selves without fear of judgement or rejection. As I have experience supporting a parent diagnosed with Schizophrenia and later being diagnosed with ADHD myself, I understand the detrimental impacts stigma can cause on a personal level. Therefore, I am invested in creating these spaces not only from a professional stand point, but also a personal one.
I utilize several therapeutic modalities as part of my eclectic approach to providing psychotherapy including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and more. An integral part of my growth as a therapist is to take part in ongoing trainings so that I can best support my clients in the ways that they need.
To give you a glimpse of my interests outside of work related topics (such as psychology, neuroscience, and understanding trauma and trauma treatments to name but a few!), I thoroughly enjoy reading, writing, dancing, being silly with my daughter, cozy Sundays with my family, listening to all kinds of music, and spending an abundance of time in nature (even though my "home-body" self needs an extra push to actually get there sometimes!).
I recognize that seeking out support can be an incredibly vulnerable experience for many. The good news is that the capacity for healing is present within each and every one of us when provided with the right supports and environments. Therefore, I would be honoured to support you in this process of growth and healing as you navigate through this challenging yet rewarding journey.
