I am passionate about helping individuals and organizations change and thrive. I am a non-judgmental, compassionate therapist who provides assistance with a variety of issues, including anxiety and stress management, grief, depression, and interpersonal relationships. I aim to work collaboratively, respectfully offering support, encouragement, insights, constructive feedback and practical tools to empower you to take action in order to cultivate a life that is congruent with your core values.
I am a Registered Social Worker (#3403) whose passion for narrative therapy first developed in New Zealand where I trained in the modality and worked with families and individuals. At its root, Feminist Narrative Therapy is a practice that looks at your life stories and how they have shaped you to be the person you are today. It is important to know that you do not have to identify as a feminist for us to work together, however feminism, does inform my work and world view.
I bring decades of experience working in community, non-profits, shelters and in women centres counselling women around interpersonal violence, sexual abuse and mental health.
