About Me

I am a Registered Master's Level Social Worker licensed in threes provinces, BC, Alberta and Ontario. I have considerable experience providing mental health and substance use services. I have a passion for working with adults to address: trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, emotional regulation, relationship concerns, life transitions, and grief/loss. I have also worked extensively with couple's. I have specialized training targeted to help support you with these challenges including EMDR Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. My approach is relationship focused to offer you safe and supportive treatment with genuineness, empathy, warmth, and acceptance. I see that my role as a therapist is to walk along side of you, helping you to navigate as you continue to discover yourself along your journey. I will help you to tap into your own inner wisdom while at the same time you will learn how to nurture yourself and your own emotional healing with both self-love and self-compassion. I believe you are the expert of your own life and that evolution and becoming the best version of yourself are possible and attainable.
