I'm a Registered Psychotherapist, sister, daughter, fiancé, friend, & mental health advocate!
After graduating from Western University with my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Sociology, I faced the common Millennial conundrum...well what to do now with my life? Then it hit me! After years of working through my own anxiety & panic, I wanted to bring my passion for supporting others to life by focusing my career on mental health and wellness advocacy. Within 2 months of graduating, I decided to pursue my passion for mental health through a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology. Since graduating, I poured my energy into advocating for mental health awareness, working through everyday problems, and reducing the stigmas behind the management of mental health concerns.
As I have worked through my own personal struggles with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, panic attacks, transitional life stress, & Millennial expectations, I have come to understand how debilitating & mentally draining anxiety can be in our lives. I continue to experience the highs and lows that life brings, but through self-awareness, mindfulness, & continuous self-development, I have learned to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I have learned the benefits of therapy first hand and have been an active "practice what you preach-er." Accessing therapy for the first time can certainly feel scary, but it doesn't have to be. I work with my clients to gain the freedom to embrace their everyday selves and regain control over their mental health!

My graduate training emphasized an evidence-based, collaborative approach. This is something I value and embrace in my work. I use scientifically proven therapeutic approaches, typically CBT, DBT, ACT, and Emotion-Focused approaches to help you reach your goals. I’m a big believer that the value of therapy comes, not just from the insights you discover in the room, but from integrating what you learn into everyday life. You’ll leave therapy with a “toolbox” of strategies to help you stay on track, move forward with your life, and successfully navigate any bumps further along your journey.
Not all humans fit well together, and that’s ok. The important thing is to find a therapist who fits your needs at this point in your life. Would we be a good fit? I hope so! Let me help you decide …
