I graduated from the Toronto Art Therapy Institute (TATI) in 2015, completed a Master of Arts in Theology (Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy) at Wilfrid Laurier University in 2018, and passed the exam to become a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists in 2019. I work predominantly with people 18+. I provide talk therapy and art therapy through a mindfulness lens, online for people anywhere in Ontario, and online and in person in Kingston Ontario. I focus on helping people cope with life changes and challenges such as grief, loss, illness, injury, relationship and family issues, academic and professional issues, stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, sexuality and life transitions. I follow a person-centred, trauma-informed, strengths-based approach to therapy. I believe that everyone has an innate sense of resiliency, and everyone has stories that need to be heard. Both art and words can help tell the stories. I am grounded in art psychotherapy, mindfulness, and psychoeducation. I help my clients find their resiliency and connect them with tools that will help them heal and grow and process memories and current feelings.

I believe that navigating life’s struggles is much like climbing a mountain and I am here to empower you to find your strengths to help you achieve your goals! My personal struggles with mental health and the realization of the stigma associated with accessing mental health services motivated me to pursue psychotherapy. Through my lived experience, I have learned that adolescence is a slippery slope to navigate, especially with the added struggles of family dynamics. My approach to counselling is simple because I believe that every individual has the power to create positive change in their lives; therefore, I work within a culturally responsive and socially just framework while using a person-centered, and strengths-based approach to psychotherapy. Together, we will create goals and explore skills to help you overcome life’s struggles.
