As a therapist, my role is to empathically guide and empower my clients to explore their innate capabilities. I strive to create a therapeutic environment that is founded on empathy, acceptance, safety, and mutual respect with each of my clients.
I have been working as a social worker at CHEO for over 17 years supporting individuals, couples, parents, families, youth and children with acute and chronic illnesses, new diagnosis, relationship issues and traumatic events. I have Master's degree in Social Work (MSW) and a dual Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Gerontology. I am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW). I am insured and bonded, and a member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW) as well as a member of the Brainspotting Canada Association.
My approach is to bring warmth and empathy to clinical care while using a holistic and person-centered approach. It is important to me to focus on the total well-being of the individual with whom I work with. I strive to help you strengthen healthy coping skills and/or teach you new strategies that better support you now in your current situation.
Services are offered in French and English. I offer a free 15 minute consultation. Let's talk about how I can help you along your path to live a fulfilling, authentic and aligned life.
