About my Credentials
I am a Registered Social Worker, a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW), and I have a Masters Degree in Social Work from York University.
Whether your current struggle is related to anxiety or depression, or you are struggling with emotional regulation or substance use, I understand these experiences as your body’s best effort to cope with what it is experiencing. As a therapist, I believe that all of our behaviours and impulses make sense if we look at the bigger picture of your life, your body, your mind and your lived experience. I believe that despite all the challenges that life presents, we are always redeemable and inherently valuable. As a therapist, I am interested in creating new stories about yourself that are more expansive and generous, and can allow you to have new experiences of your life and yourself.
I provide a warm and resonant presence that is always reaching towards giving you the most generous interpretation of yourself. I use compassion, embodiment, and non-judgment to guide my work, where I support my clients to dig deeper into their current emotional experiences. As we pay attention to your body and its emotional responses, we can attune to the stories, truths, and sensations that live below the surface of our everyday life, revealing a rich tapestry of information for us to hold and work with.
If you are interested to know more, please feel free to connect with me. You can also book a free 15-minute phone consultation or a session if you feel inclined to, using the links on this page. I would love to answer any outstanding questions you might have.
As your therapist, my job is to create a comfortable and resilient container for you to discuss what you are needing support with. A session of therapy with me will be laden with warm presence and curiosity about what makes you you. In our first session together, we’ll talk about some relevant background info, your main concerns that you’d like to work on, and your goals for therapy.
