It was because of my interest in people that I decided to pursue a career in social work. I’ve always considered it a privilege to hear my clients share their lives with me, whether it be their past, their goals and dreams, or their struggles and challenges. Every interaction I have with a client allows me to provide a personalized level of care that my clients have come to expect and deserve.
The passion I have for people has lead me to obtain my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Ottawa in 2009. Beyond my formal training, I immersed myself in studying various psychological approaches including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Impact Therapy, Eye Movement Integration (EMI), and Mindfulness. Each client is unique, facing their own set of challenges, which is why I consider being versed in many different therapeutic approaches absolutely essential to providing the best care to my clients.
Throughout my career, I provided a wide range of counseling services within Hospitals, School Boards, and Community Services. In addition, my work in rehabilitation centres, has given me invaluable experience working with young offenders and youth under the protection of the Children’s Aid Society. I finally settled on running my own private practice as a psychotherapist.
I absolutely understand that life can be difficult, stressful, and often overwhelming. As a christian, a mother, and a wife, I certainly understand the headaches of life. No matter what obstacles we face, I believe that the journey is easier through listening and implementing the wisdom that is received from thoughtful and personalized counselling. I understand that sharing painful memories and deep hurt can be challenging. I want all my clients to feel safe in sharing their lives as I aim to provide secure, compassionate, and non-judgemental counsel. I am fully committed to all of my clients and all interactions and contents are strictly confidential.
Helping people is what I truly love to do. The satisfaction that I receive from witnessing my clients overcome their struggles and be fully equipped to face their lives is unparalleled. If you are feeling heavy-hearted, overwhelmed or disconnected, please contact me.
