I am a Registered Social Worker practicing in London, Ontario.
Psychotherapy and counselling is not only my career but it is my passion.
As a therapist, I am committed to assisting my clients with all of their concerns
with sincerity and compassion.
I graduated from the University of Western Ontario with
my Master of Counselling Psychology degree having previously completed my
Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and my Bachelor of Education in Adult Education.
I continued my education by completing a certificate program through the
International Society of Traumatic Stress Studies and became a EMDRIA
Certified EMDR Therapist. In addition to psychotherapy services, I also
offer consultation services for new EDMR therapists, as a consultant in training.
I have worked in the forensic field prior to entering my career, as a Registered
Social Worker. The role allowed me opportunities to work within group
therapy settings, case management roles, investigative and risk assessment,
and I spent some time teaching at the Ontario Correctional Services College.
When entering my career, as a therapist, I had the opportunity to work at
the London Health Science Centre within the Traumatic Stress Services working with men and women impacted by early developmental trauma. Working along side individuals overcoming their Post Traumatic Stress has been a great honour and rewarding experience that I continue to enjoy in my private practice.
Currently, in my private practice here in London, Ontario where I work with individuals ages 16 and older who struggle with mental health and addictions. I have developed specialized skills in addressing childhood trauma, family violence, anger, self-esteem, and mood disorders related to anxiety and depression. I provide in person, telephone sessions and video appointments.
As a therapist, I believe that our body and minds are naturally designed to heal but at times this process can become stuck. Therapy helps by address these stuck points and allows for healing to occur. My hope is to provide a safe place to share your experiences and to facilitate the changes that will allow you to fulfill your life goals and dreams.
