Hi there! I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I obtained an Honours Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Guelph as well as a Master’s in Business Administration from Wilfrid Laurier University and a Master’s in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. My professional experience includes corporate management, business, and lecturing, in addition to counselling. My counselling experience has involved working with adults and youth individually, as well as couples and families. My journey into the counselling profession came at a later stage in my life, and I have found my lived experiences to be immensely valuable when working with clients, especially parents, families and couples.
I believe there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to therapy and thus pull from a variety of modalities when working with clients to establish a plan to best meet their needs. These include but are not limited to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Strengths Based and Client-Centred Approaches. I have also received additional training in Gottman Couples Therapy.
Working alongside clients as they navigate the complexity of their lives is a true privilege. We often wait until we are completely overwhelmed to seek help and support, but the wonderful thing about therapy is it provides a space to process emotions, thoughts and experiences in a non-judgmental and supportive place- past and present. Each of us will struggle with various things in our lives at some point- it is inevitable to the human experience. Having someone there to accompany you on that journey can make all the difference.
