My Approach to Therapy
Seeking support should not feel like accepting defeat. As a Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW), my intentions are to cultivate a therapeutic relationship which prioritizes dignity and autonomy. Situated in Guelph, Ontario, I offer a collaborative and empowering approach both in-person and virtually to reflect client needs.
A current Mental Health Therapist at Homewood Health Centre, with a strong background supporting adolescents and teens through the Victoria District School Board, Waterloo District School Board, and Grand River Hospital outpatient services. Optimizing an eclectic approach, I work collaboratively to explore strategies aimed at addressing anxiety, depression, behaviour/emotion regulation, self-esteem/self-worth, experienced trauma, self-injurious behaviours, relationship issues and beyond.
Proficient in practicing from multiple lens’ including cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based practice, solution focused, motivational interviewing and beyond. Using a client-centred and trauma informed approach, I strive to build connections based on trust, and understanding.
Recognizing that mental wellness is a fundamental right, I support clients from all walks of life.
I believe it is my lived experience which has complemented me with a non-judgemental approach to service. A down-to-earth person who enjoys outdoor recreation and leisure, sports, music, reading, mindfulness, exercise, and spending time with my partner and children. Whether you’re an adolescent, teen, or adult struggling with mental wellness, I believe that together we can identify and achieve your desired goals and outcomes to further reach your best authentic version of self.
