About Me

I have been providing support to a wide range of individuals with a variety of concerns for over 8 years. While working in the mental health field, I became particularly interested with experiences related to grief, bereavement, trauma and other forms of loss. I provide client centered counselling and psychotherapy for adults and young adults based on individual requests and needs. I also have experience with working alongside individuals and their families who have been impacted by cancer. I currently have my practice out of the Equinox Centre for Grief and Trauma Counselling. Please see the contact page for location details.

Approach

I practice with an integrative approach, drawing from cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, narrative, and trauma-informed therapies. I ensure that the techniques I am drawing upon best fit the needs/goals that the client brings to the therapeutic relationship. What is of utmost importance for me is to provide a safe environment for the client to share and explore the struggles that he or she is experiencing.

Education

I graduated with a Bachelors of Social Work from Ryerson University in 2009 and obtained my Masters of Education in Counselling Psychology from the University of Toronto – Ontario Institute for Studies in Education in 2013. While obtaining my Master’s I had a desire to specialize in grief and bereavement. I hold two specialization certificates: Bereavement Education, and Grief and Trauma Counselling, both from the University of Toronto’s Factor-Inwentash School of Social Work.
