About Me and My Work

I am an individual, couples/relationship, and family therapist. I believe in creating a safe

space where people of all backgrounds are welcome, and where clients feel seen,

heard, valued, and supported. I work together, with clients, to empower inherent

strengths and skills in those that are in my care. Clients can discover greater feelings of

connection, understanding, curiosity and mindfulness in their lives.

 

As an Elementary School Teacher since 2001, I worked with children and youth in the

learning environment, and supported students with a broad range of issues, including

depression, anxiety and relationship challenges. As a Registered Psychotherapist

(Qualifying), I have focused on a mindfulness-based framework that fosters self-

discovery, as well as identifying and resisting shame.

 

Specific treatment approaches include, but are not limited to, evidence-based therapeutic

modalities, including: Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples

Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Family Systems Therapy. I

also have a strong focus on providing psychotherapy services for LGBTQ individuals

and couples.
