- ABOUT ME -

Over the past decade, I have dedicated myself to supporting people and communities to heal from the trauma and emotional injury that stems from their experiences of interpersonal violence (e.g. bullying, ridicule, discrimination, abuse, etc.) Journeying alongside people as they explore, unpack, and making meaning of these experiences has been a deep honour for personally, professionally, and spiritually.

I have extensive experience counselling people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, and or trauma-related concerns. I am trained in various theraptuic approaches such as:

  • Integrated & Experiential Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (IX-CBT)
  • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT)
  • Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT)
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy

I am currently a counsellor in the Student Wellness Centre and a Ph.D. student in Social Work at McMaster University. I completed my Bachelor and Master of Social Work at York University in 2011. Much of my academic work has centred on LGBTTI2Q+ communities, resilience, and transpersonal psychology.
