Registered Social Worker 

MSW Candidate

 

Hello and welcome! 

 

I am currently enrolled in the Master of Social Work for Working Professionals program at the University of Windsor.  I have joined Psychotherapy for You in the final stage of this educational program to provide you with client-centred counselling. I intend to keep pursuing new learning opportunities so that I may always provide you with meaningful therapy.  

 

My goal is to support individuals, couples, and families who are facing challenges to build resilience, grow, and heal.  Both my professional and lived experiences have shown me that awareness and education are key to coping with stressors and recovery, so I like to provide my clients with knowledge, skills and practical tools to support their goals. I work from a strengths-based approach, helping you discover your internal and external resources that will aid you beyond our therapy sessions.  

 

I take a holistic approach in devising a treatment plan with you.  I believe you know you best, and I will meet you where you are.  With that said, I provide a safe and comfortable environment for you to unpack themes, behaviours, and thoughts that are contributing to stressful experiences or hindering your healing and goal attainment.  Using a collaborative approach, we will find ways for you to navigate life’s challenges and address your personal concerns.  

 

In my previous work experiences, I have supported children, youth, adults and families in the following areas:  

 

  • Depression   

  • Anxiety  

  • Social Isolation 

  • Substance Use 

  • Parent – Child Conflict 

  • Relationship Issues 

  • Emotional Dysregulation  

  • Goal Setting

  • Burnout/Stress

  • Trauma / PTSD

 

I look forward to working with you!
