(She/Her) For as long as I can remember I knew that I wanted to work with children and youth in some capacity. My passion for young people developed at an early age through being the eldest child in my family and through growing up with a home daycare in my home. I continued exploring this interest through studying psychology and development in my undergraduate degree, which led me to discover counselling as a profession which seemed like the perfect balance of my passions and interests.

When not working or completing school work, you can find me hanging out with my pup Koda, and my partner. We try to spend as much time outdoors as possible, exploring our beautiful island through walks on the beach, hikes, camping, and swimming, or at home reading, trying new recipes, or curled up for a cuddle with my pup. When younger, I had the pleasure and opportunity of living in three different provinces as well as living for a few years in both Europe and Australia, and doing so allows me to truly appreciate the beauty and opportunities of my home on Vancouver Island. I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Criminology & Socio-Legal Studies at the University of Toronto in 2016. Wanting to further my education specifically with a younger population, I completed a certificate program in Child and Adolescent Mental Health at Northern College in 2017. Most recently, I have completed my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University, which included mentorship during my clinical internship by Charlotte King-Harris. I have also specific education in supporting clients and family members with trauma, addiction, interpersonal relationships, and am working towards certification in Synergetic Play Therapy.

In addition to my clinical internship, I have 1.5 years of experience working with adults as a crisis and single-session counsellor with two years of experience as an Intake Counsellor prior to this. I also spent time working in residential treatment for female youth and have also volunteered as a Crisis Text Responder with Kids Help Phone for over a year.

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor in British Columbia and I am also registered as a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) in Ontario. I am able to take on clients from both of these provinces as well as clients that live in unregulated provinces. Contact me for more details. 

Please reach out to schedule a complimentary 20-minute meet and greet to see if it would be a good fit for us to work together. I look forward to hearing from you.
