I am a Clinical Therapist who is passionate about treating children, youth, and their families, using approaches that are tailored to best meeting my client’s unique needs and challenges. I am dedicated to meeting my clients where they are at in their individual process, and working with them to achieve improvements and create opportunity for them to be the person they want to be. The majority of my work has involved at-risk children & youth who are struggling with bullying, violence, depression, self-harm, suicidal ideations, family conflict, sexual abuse, self-esteem, and anxiety.
I am also able to provide prevention and intervention support for families who are struggling with specific challenges within the family unit or families who are in crisis. I take a unique, creative approach to therapy & counseling with all of my clients by incorporating self-regulation, expression, and psycho-education into most treatment approaches. Treatment approaches include art/play therapy, psychoanalytical theory/talk therapy, attachment based therapy, family systems theory, mindfulness, trauma focused, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
I have been working in the mental health field for over 10 years and have experience working in the following settings: mental health hospitals, residential treatment centers, college campuses, elementary schools, youth correctional facilities, my own private practice, and alongside the Durham Regional Police Department. Education is something I'm passionate about and to date I have completed a degree in both Criminology (Honours) and Psychology (Honours), a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology, and I am currently pursuing a Doctorate Degree in Clinical Psychology and a second Doctorate Degree in Forensic Psychology. I also teach psychology and forensic psychology classes at Durham College to foster my passion for continual learning.
Apart from my career and my schooling I love spending time with my family. My husband and I have 3 wonderful little boys that we enjoy vacationing with, spending summer weekends at our cottage with, and exploring new places.
