I believe that we all have the capacity to heal and process through emotional pain, however I also acknowledge that sometimes we land at a place in life where we lose touch with our innate resources and safe connections. My role as a therapist is to provide space for clients in an empathic, non-judgemental, and curious manner in order to aid in their self-discovery, including all parts pleasant and painful.
With this in mind, I work from a client-centred approach such that the client leads each session, while I provide reflection, feedback, and space for processing and safe exploration. I incorporate components of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Attachment-based therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
My educational career involves a Bachelor of Science degree from Wilfrid Laurier University majoring in Psychology and Biology, a Behavioural Science program from George Brown College, as well as a Master's degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. I am a Certified Grief Specialist Counsellor and I am currently a member in good standing with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
