I work with clients of all ages with presenting concerns related to anxiety and depression, body issues, career challenges, gender and sexuality-related issues, religious wounds, self-esteem issues, identity issues, and societal pressures. I specifically enjoy working with teens, young adults, and 2SLGBTQ+ folx. I draw from Narrative Therapy, Queer Theory, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Feminist Therapy, Geek Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy. But what do all these modalities and presenting concerns mean…?
In session, you can anticipate sharing your experiences and being asked to explore your behaviours, feelings, and thoughts about these experiences. Together, we will seek to identify the stories you believe about yourself, your relationships, and the world. We will integrate a strengths-based approach to counselling so we can find exceptions to the problems you are facing and identify personal strengths you can utilize in difficult situations. By identifying personal strengths, you can begin to rewrite your life narrative(s) and find alternative solutions that will contribute to an improved quality of life.
I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies and Business from the University of Waterloo and a Master of Arts in Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy from Wilfrid Laurier University. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and am currently a member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP).
