Member of College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO)

I am a Registered Psychotherapist who has a passion for working with clients dealing with a variety of mental health difficulties and symptoms. My practice focuses on helping individuals navigate and manage difficulties with stress, anxiety/panic, OCPD traits, trauma, attachment injuries, and somatic symptoms. I also have a specific interest in helping clients cope with the difficulties they are experiencing post-impairment and diagnosis for a variety of chronic illnesses and conditions, including those with chronic pain and neurological impairments (i.e., concussions, MS, strokes etc.).

My approach focuses on using therapies such as Somatic Experiencing (SE), Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT Level 2), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), interpersonal therapy and mindfulness interventions to help the client overcome barriers that may be preventing them from reaching their full potential. My approach focuses on using body-based approaches to promote regulation and resilience in the nervous system as well as exploring the emotions (especially negative emotions) that show up for us to better understand how these emotions often are integral to our daily functioning and are necessary to us living happy, healthy and meaningful lives.
