In my practice, my goal is to walk alongside you in times of discomfort and uncertainty so you don’t have to face them alone. My warm approach to the therapeutic process includes providing a space where you can discover, and sit with, your truest self in order to acknowledge and unpack some of the uncomfortable moments in your life. In this approach, we collaboratively explore and set goals for our time together, and work to create an environment where you can grow and flourish. I utilize a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches such as Emotionally-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and the Internal Family Systems Model to assist you in working towards the goals you have for yourself.
I have two Bachelor’s Degrees from the University of Waterloo in Social Development Studies and Social Work and am currently working toward my Master’s of Social Work degree at the University of Toronto. Over the past several years, I have had the privilege of supporting a diverse range of clients in various settings, assisting them in working through a multitude of challenges including varying mental health diagnoses, addiction, relational issues, and low self-esteem. I am honoured to be able to further my professional practice here at Beaches Therapy Group as a Social Work Intern. My services are offered at a reduced hourly rate and are supervised by a Registered Social Worker in the group practice.
Your decision to start therapy is a courageous one and I acknowledge the vulnerability it takes to open yourself up to be heard and seen by someone new. It is important that you feel connected to your clinician in order to do effective work. Let’s connect for your free initial consultation to get acquainted and talk more about what you’re looking to get out of psychotherapy, in order to ensure we would be a good therapeutic match. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
