I am a Registered Social Worker and practicing psychotherapist who has been in the field since 2006. In addition to running my own private practice, I am completing my PhD and my doctorate in Integrative Medicine with a focus on mental health an addiction.

I have worked in primary care providing counseling to family physicians’ patients who are experiencing difficulties due to mental health, family stressors, grief and loss, and/or addiction issues. I am also a faculty member at the Center for Mindfulness Studies in Toronto where I run clinical Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) groups for stress reduction and anxiety/depression management.

I am extremely passionate about helping people from a holistic perspective and treating the whole person-mind body and spirit. We are all unique and complex beings with our own life story. In turn, I believe that one specific modality of therapy is not for everyone.

I am dedicated to constantly growing myself, I know firsthand the power that having a supportive and trained therapist can have on one’s quality of life. I feel extremely grateful to do the work that I do and to be able to sit with people during their most difficult times. Life is not easy and has so many ups and downs!
