About Me

Congratulations on choosing to take this first step towards your recovery!

If you are an individual struggling with Depression and Anxiety, I hope to be able to help you feel empowered and to help you begin your personal recovery journey. Through non-judgemental support, encouragement, and with effective coping strategies, my hope is that you will be able to gain back control over certain aspects of your life.

I firmly believe that recovery from mental illness is possible, but it is important to recognize that it will take time and to keep in mind that recovery does not necessarily mean you will be "cured". My goal is to help empower you, so that you will be able to recognize your own strengths and go from just "existing" to "living". Even though we can't change situations that have happened in the past, we can work on building you a "toolbox" of coping strategies that can help you handle other challenges that you might face. With effective therapy approaches and skills, we can discover unhelpful behaviour patterns or negative thoughts that may be hindering you from living a fulfilling and meaningful life.

So, if you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or if you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.​

WORK EXPERIENCE
I am currently employed as a Full-Time Social Worker (MSW) with the Brant Community Healthcare System in Brantford, Ontario. I have been working in the Mental Health and Addictions Oupatient and Inpatient programs for 4 years; specifically the outpatient Acute Day Treatment Program and Inpatient Mental Health group program. I was also trained as a Crisis Counsellor and worked in that area for almost a year.

Previously, I was employed at St. Leonard's Community Services as a Crisis Worker for close to a year. I saw clients through the crisis walk-in and also answered calls that came through the 24/7 crisis line.
