When we are feeling stuck, alone, or trapped with certain thoughts or ways of being, therapy can open up new possibilities. It can’t erase pain or grief, but it can help us move forward in meaningful directions, and it can help transform our relationship to our pain.
Therapy can be hard work, and it can also be fun. I welcome your whole self into the therapy room, and together with a spirit of curiosity and openness we will figure out what comes next.
About me: Inspired by my own NICU experiences, I have been supporting parents and families for the past ten years as a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Family Support Specialist. I’ve worked with people experiencing bereavement, complex grief, and major life transitions. I am currently training with the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy and am supervised by faculty there.
I have a Masters in Adult Education from OISE/UT, and a Diploma in Alternative Dispute Resolution and Mediation from York University. I am a member of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapists (CAPT) and the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS). I am working towards registration with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and follow their Code of Ethics.
I have completed training in maternal and infant mental health. I have also completed the Resolve Through Sharing: Perinatal Bereavement Program. My primary therapeutic approach is relational; I also really enjoy incorporating Acceptance Commitment Therapy into my practice. I am committed to creating a welcoming, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive framework. Pronouns: she/her.
