Member of College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO)

I am a Registered Psychotherapist who provides telehealth evidence-based psychotherapy treatments to help my clients reach their best selves and build a life worth living. I am passionate about supporting people in coping with emotion regulation difficulties, relationship conflicts or loneliness, childhood or single-event traumas, suicidal ideation and lack of meaning in life.
I have a BA in Psychology, MA in Clinical Psychology and several trainings in evidence-based approaches including but not limited to Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and its adaptations for trauma, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy.
I have 8 years of professional practice delivering evidence-based psychotherapies. Early in my career, I worked as a clinical psychologist at an adult inpatient mental health unit, an outpatient unit and at private practice. Currently, I’m I am licensed for independent practice of psychotherapy by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).
My approach to psychotherapy is based mostly on our shared humanity; we are all humans, and it is natural to have difficult moments and painful emotions sometimes (or often!).
I strive to bring a non-judgmental, compassionate, and warm approach to my clinical work. I genuinely believe (and the research data support my point of view) that building a trusting relationship between client and therapist can be the key ingredient to making psychotherapy a profound healing experience.
I have lived experience of being a POC, Latinx, immigrant woman in Canada. I make every effort to apply an Anti-Oppression lens to psychotherapy work.
