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 an EMDRIA Approved Consultant.
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.
