Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
Like many of you, I have also struggled with anxiety, depression, and a lack of self-esteem. I have experienced many lows. There were moments where I felt lost and stuck. It wasn’t until I accepted what I was experiencing and developed appropriate coping skills, mindfulness, self acceptance and self compassion that I found a sense of peace within myself. It was empowering to take control of the negative thoughts. With the necessary help and support, I was able to achieve my own sense of balance and I felt like I was finally on the right track.
I can understand how difficult life transitions may be. After receiving my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from The State University of New York at Potsdam, I took some time off from school and dabbled in the service industry and legal field. I always felt like something was missing. At this moment, I knew I wanted to continue pursuing a career in mental health. I received a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology through Yorkville University. During my studies, I saw clients who experienced many different life challenges. I worked with individuals, couples, and families. Throughout this time, I came to understand myself as a therapist and the approach I wish to take with my clients.
I take an integrative approach. My orientation is primarily client-centred, and I incorporate components of Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectal Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and Strength-Based Therapy.

What happens at the initial session?
After completion of the intake form, I will have you tell me about yourself and your concerns. This first session provides me the opportunity to get to know you and see if I am a good fit for you. The first session allows us to develop the initial therapeutic bond, building a safe and trusting environment. We will discuss what brought you to counselling, your needs, expectations, and goals.
