I am an Individual, Couple, Family & Sex Therapist who provides confidential and professional therapy in a comfortable private practice setting. Prior to living and working in the beautiful town of Dundas, Ontario I worked as an Individual, Couple & Family Therapist in two agency settings in York Region and in private practice in Mississauga. In addition to therapy, I have also worked as a facilitator of parent, family, and teen groups, focusing on strengthening parent-child relationships and equipping parents with effective parenting tools and resources.
My education includes receiving an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Waterloo and a Master of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Guelph. I have continued my professional training since completing my Masters degree. I have received supervision for providing therapy specific to individuals and families struggling with substance abuse and addiction. I have also completed various area-specific workshops as well as courses in sex therapy. I am a Certified Member of BESTCO (Board of Examiners in Sex Therapy and Counselling in Ontario) and a full member of SSTAR (Society for Sex Therapy & Research). I also completed The Daring Way™ training and consultation between 2014 to 2016 and am a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator.
As a Registered Psychotherapist (CRPO #004899), a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist with the Canadian Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (CAMFT #2017462), and a Clinical Fellow and Approved Supervisor with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT #88211), I adhere to strict ethical guidelines put in place to provide clients with a safe, comfortable therapeutic setting.
It is my belief that each person's experience of life is unique. By entering
into therapy with this perspective, I believe I am able to work sensitively and
effectively with clients who have had various cultural and social experiences
and who may hold diverse values and beliefs. It is always a privilege for me to
be a part of my clients' processes as they move towards discovering
alternative stories, change, and healing.
