learn to listen and heal YOURSELF, one step at a time

When you’re looking for a therapist, “fit” is key. Talking with someone whose personality and approach resonates with you will make all the difference, so I am really glad are reading this. Bravo!

My approach is backed by credentials and experience. 

I received my Master of Counselling Psychology (MA) from Yorkville University and I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. That means I am a qualified psychotherapist but I am waiting to complete my qualifying exam, 100 hours of supervision, and 450 direct client contact hours under the new Ontario legislation so that I may call myself a fully registered practitioner (hence the “qualifying" bit). As such I currently engage in supervised practice, meaning I meet regularly with a highly experienced Psychotherapist who oversees my work as a Psychotherapist.

I am a Professional Member with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and I am currently finalizing my Canadian Certified Counsellor accreditation. 

I also have training and certification in the following areas:

I have been working in mental health and therapeutic fields for over four years. This includes working as a Counsellor at Georgian College, experience with Catholic Children’s Aid Society, the therapeutic work I have done teaching mindfulness meditation for over three years, and the work I did for a number of not-for-profit organizations over the years.

I also have a Bachelor of Education from York University, supporting my ability to teach individuals and groups.
