Clinical Social Worker/Therapist, MSW, RSW, RP
We all encounter obstacles in our lives that can create thoughts and feelings related to stress, despair, insecurity, and isolation. It can be difficult to seek help, especially if feeling stuck. I am passionate about helping individuals achieve their personal goals and cultivate resiliency so that they can feel relief from emotional distress and move towards desired growth. I commit to creating an open and non-judgmental space in which individuals can comfortably explore their thoughts and emotions.
I am a registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist and graduated from the University of Windsor with a Masters Degree in Social Work. I have 8 years of working experience in the fields of child and adolescent mental health and have supported children, teens, and their families. Currently, I primarily work within a school board where I assist students, families, and staff.
With everyone I work with, I collaboratively develop therapeutic goals and intervention plans to help generate positive growth and change. I ground my practice in strengths-based and anti-oppressive approaches while incorporating evidence-based modalities (e.g. Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) that I have been trained in. I value establishing strong and authentic therapeutic relationships.
I currently have some weekend and some evening appointments available. It is important that you feel your counsellor is the appropriate professional to assist you. I happily offer a free 20 minute phone consultation to help determine if I might be someone to support you.
