M.Sc., EMDR., Registered Psychotherapist
Seeking counseling is not always an easy thing to do, however it can provide you with an opportunity to deal with difficulties, whatever that may be for you. It is a chance to be listened to and be understood, free of judgment. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe and nurturing environment in which individuals can feel supported during their journey towards change and personal growth. I enjoy working with couples, adolescence, and adults struggling with a variety of issues including: grief, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, life changes etc.
I entered the field of counseling because of my passion to help people understand life challenges in ways that enhance their strengths and ability to make changes. I work from a client centered approach and tailor the process to fit the needs of each individual client. Although I am well versed in various theoretical orientations and techniques, my primary approaches include Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I hold a Master’s of Science in Marital Family Therapy and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology; Professional memberships include the Canadian Counseling and Psychotherapy Association and the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
Sessions can be provided in French or English, depending on what you are more comfortable with.
