Certified Grief Counselling Specialist
BA(Psych), MA, MACP
I have always been passionate about helping people work towards optimal wellness by exploring their concerns and using a goal-directed approach. I can help you learn new ways to cope, get back on track and build the life you deserve. I will provide a safe and non-judgemental space to explore what you need. Some concerns I can help you with include anxiety, health anxiety, chronic illness, stress, grief and bereavement, depression, self-esteem, transition periods, relationships, issues related to being a new parent, and of course issues related to COVID-19.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and a Member in Good Standing with the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP), and follow their ethical guidelines. I am also a Certified Grief Counselling Specialist.
My educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Ryerson University and a Master’s degree in Kinesiology and Health Science from York University, where I specialized in sociocultural studies of chronic illness, and women’s experiences with cancer and therapeutic yoga. I also have a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University where I focused on anxiety in my research.
My interests in mental and physical health come together to help me understand the importance in creating life balance and practicing regular self-care. Over the past decade, I’ve had the pleasure of working with youth, university students, athletes, those with cancer and other chronic illnesses, new parents, families, and those with seriously ill children. I look forward to working with you individually as you navigate working through stressful life experiences and transitions.
I take an integrative approach and am drawn to acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based techniques, cognitive-behavioural, emotion-focused, solution-focused, and narrative therapies. Together, we will find the best fit for your needs.
