I provide a relaxing, empathetic environment that is approachable and optimistic. I provide evidence based services such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy. I understand the psychology of the mind and how mental health and trauma affects our lives. As a social worker, I have a deep understanding of how one’s upbringing, society, race, gender, disability and other factors influence our health. I take a solution-focused approach that is goal-oriented and collaborative. This often includes motivational interviewing and narrative therapy where we explore your capability for change.
I want to partner with you in working towards your biological, psychological, social and spiritual health. Appointments are confidential and non-judgemental. You don’t have to struggle alone, I can help you with solutions. Using mindfulness techniques, I can help you realize your existing strengths and provide you with tangible tools for mental well-being. I am available in the evenings for your convenience. I also provide case management and advocacy to help you attain appropriate services throughout the community.
