I believe that each person is the expert in their own life. From time to time though, we all need a little extra help supporting ourselves through the process of life and the challenges it provides us. Through a supportive, collaborative, strengths-based approach to psychotherapy, I am able to guide my clients to understand themselves on a deeper level, to develop and implement plans for change, and to help heal, find new meaning, and adopt new perspectives. I run a group creative-arts focused practice in Whitby, ON, where my team supports children, teens, & adults throughout Durham region as well as online via distance therapy. My areas of specialization include women's issues, resilience, trauma & recovery (incl. sexual assault & domestic violence), healing & spiritual growth, confidence & self-worth, and child & adolescent issues. As a Registered Psychotherapist with CRPO & Expressive Arts Practitioner, I utilize a variety of creative treatment modalities including Expressive Arts Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, Play Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, & Mindfulness-Based practices in combination to support my clients with their unique holistic needs and goals.
