"I think it’s really important to take the stigma away from mental health… My brain and my heart are really important to me. I don’t know why I wouldn’t seek help to have those things be as healthy as my teeth." - Kerry Washington
I am a registered social Worker and Psychotherapist in Ontario. I am also a member of Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. I obtained my bachelor of Social Work from the University of Manitoba and obtained my Masters of Social Work from the University of Windsor. I have a certificate in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). I also have a certificate in Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapy and Brian Spotting.
I started my career by providing support to individuals who were struggling with life challenges. I have experience working with a variety of areas such as anxiety, depression, grief, separation, and self-esteem.
I am also trained in self-compassion, Mindfulness, grounding techniques and breathing exercises. I use a unique blend of evidence based modalities to fit the individual needs of the person I work with. I view mental health as a part of life we all experience over the course of our life span. I use an empathetic and non-judgmental approach in order to ensure people feel safe.
I try to live my life according to the Helen Keller quote “Together we can do so little, together we can do so much”.
