My Background

I am a student completing my Master of Social Work degree from the University of British Columbia, Okanagan. My education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Women’s Studies from York University, Toronto. I have many years of experience supporting children, families, neurodiverse individuals, survivors of violence and parents. I have previously worked in client homes, daycares, foster homes, community centres, shelters, and schools. My racial identity and the intersection of Eastern and Western cultures shape my worldview.

My Approach

I truly believe that a one size fits all approach does not work, as each client has a unique story. Therefore, I tailor therapy based on the goals of the client. I take a collaborative approach and focus on relationship building. I aim to create a space where individuals feel heard, validated, and safe sharing their stories.

My approach is based on an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, feminist lens, implementing a client-centred and narrative therapy. We can work together to uncover issues that may be causing a conflict in your life. As communities, families and culture play a major role in shaping one’s identity, this can be explored in our therapy sessions. I am passionate about women’s health, so I can provide perinatal, postpartum, and parenting support to improve your well-being. I am here to listen to how your story is used to make meaning of your life.
