I am a certified Canadian Counsellor in good standing with Canadian Counselling and Psychological Association. I hold an Honours Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Toronto and a Master of Counselling Psychology from Adler University. I have had training in Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Sensorimotor Therapy and Couples Therapy.
Prior to my time at JMA, I worked with both adults and youth presenting with a variety of issues such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, relational conflicts, and self-esteem. I’ve also worked with women who have experienced interpersonal violence. My current area of focus is return to work rehabilitation using Behavioural Activation (BA) strategies as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In my sessions, I focus on empowering my clients and developing a mutual relationship of care and support, while helping them develop the tools needed to reach their potential as unique and valuable individuals.
While I am passionate about my career and the work that we do at JMA, I also believe it is important to have a healthy work-life balance. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, rock climbing, and listening to music.
