I run my therapy practice out of New Roots Therapy, which is where I did my training as a student therapist while completing the Master’s of Arts in Counselling Psychology program at Yorkville University. I graduated from Trent University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and English Literature.
My approach to therapy is to provide the empathy and non-judgmental support that people need to share their experiences and work through the challenges they are facing. I pull from various modern approaches to therapy including but not limited to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Emotion-Focused Therapy. My intention with each client is to work with them to find a therapeutic path that will best suit their needs and preferences. If we work together, the goal of therapy will not be to “fix” or “change” you, but to guide you to see a more expansive view of yourself, your life, and your relationships. I will assist you as you work towards acceptance of yourself and your emotions, and a deeper connection with yourself and others.
By following a client-centred approach, I accept that you, as the client, are the expert on your own life and mind. My role as the counsellor is to help you deconstruct what you are feeling, what you have gone through and what is happening now in order to work towards your therapeutic goals. I encourage healing thoughts, productive communication, and constructive actions that bring about positive changes in your well-being. I am comfortable offering support with many different challenges that you may be facing, such as stress, grief, anxiety, neurodivergence, depression, relational concerns, and issues with self-esteem and self-doubt.
I am passionate in providing therapy to all client populations, and work with all different ages, cultures, race, sexualities and genders. I continue to train and take courses today to build my knowledge about various therapeutic approaches and issues clients may be facing. I have done trainings on working with grief, trauma and anxiety and ADHD.
I have a soft spot for animals and a great love of food. I like being outdoors and hiking, camping, swimming, sitting by campfires and stargazing. It is through my connection with nature, music, movement and animals that I find peace. This is why I am passionate about finding many ways to be mindful in life, while doing the activities that you already love. I have a great love of life’s simple pleasures, like my favourite tv show, scented candles and tea, and I love to laugh and be with my loved ones.
I bring my interest into my practice with clients. I encourage my clients to strengthen their connections to those who are close to them, do what they love, and find peace and contentment in daily life.
