Whether you are seeking a therapist for yourself or a loved one, it is important to choose someone you connect with. Working with adults, couples and individuals of all backgrounds and lifestyles, I genuinely enjoy meeting new people and learning about their lives. In a relaxed and supportive environment, we will work together to learn about your hopes and goals, and create a plan to achieve them.
My goal is to remain approachable and easy to talk to and present a calming, positive outlook on life. I bring a curious and authentic interest in helping you live your best life. By meeting you where you are and exploring the areas that challenge you, I will encourage you to feel empowered and capable of making a change.
I possess a Specialized Honours Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Social Work, with a concentration on clinical, Individual, Family and Group therapy. I am a registered Social Worker in good standing with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) and the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW).
I have specialized training in the areas of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Grief and Loss, Children’s Mental Health, Depression and other mood disorders, Trauma, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, and Mindfulness Stress Reduction.
I live and work in the Barrie area and spend my off hours enjoying the great outdoors with my family and friends!
