About Me

In my life, I have learned at least one powerful truth: hearing and seeing others for who they are, in the present moment, is one of the greatest gifts a human can offer another. Long before I became a therapist, I recognized that my friends and family would come to me to be heard – not for off-hand advice or to be told what they wanted to hear. To be truly heard in whatever issue or struggle they wanted to talk about. I was able to hear and see them just at they were. Being heard allowed them to face the next day, next struggle, or even just to stop being so hard on themselves over their experience. I have allowed my experiences to guide me in a desire to meet people where they are and help them thrive. I took an innate sense inside me, something in my core, and developed it through education, training, experience and continuous learning. I truly believe this work is why I’m here.

Education & Experience

I received my M.A. in Counselling Psychology in 2009 and am a Certified Canadian Counsellor through the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I have received further training in Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Ego State Therapy, and Mindful self-compassion. I am also a Certified EMDR therapist. I’ve been a private practice therapist for 14 years, as well had a couple of years of working at Bravestone Centre, second stage housing for women who have left domestic abusive relationships.
