Having graduated from Ryerson University’s Bachelor of Social Work in 2020, I am currently in the process of completing my Master’s of Social Work degree at the University of Toronto (Factor-Inwentash Campus). I am a Registered Social Worker (836822) with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW).
In support of individuals dealing with anxiety, dependencies on substance use and gaming, depression, sex and sexuality issues, and trauma, it is my hope that we will foster a warm, secure, and collaborative relationship that will promote compassion and awareness to the exploration of your thoughts, emotions, and ultimately – your whole self. Striving for an Anti-Oppressive practise informed by anti-colonialism, intersectional feminism, anti-racism, and harm reduction, I draw on interventions from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Mindfulness, and Motivational Interviewing (MI) while I continue to further develop my therapeutic modalities in my ongoing professional development.
Growing up in downtown Toronto, I have worked with LGBTQ2S+ people here and in the York region in both individual and group-based capacities. I have always had a sincere connection to the LGBTQ2S+ community and the Church-Wellesley village. It has been a privilege to grow up in such a diverse city and I hope to work with a similarly diverse group of individuals in their journeys of health, healing, and ease of wellbeing.
