A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) and a Licensed Counselling Therapist (LCT). I am a graduate of the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy (TIRP), and I hold a certificate in the Fundamentals of Mindfulness from McMaster University. I am a member of the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists, and I am governed by their code of ethics. I comply with the professional practice standards of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and the College of Counselling Therapists of New Brunswick (CCTNB).
I hold a degree in Literature, as my passion has always been the examination and contemplation of the characteristics that make us human. Before turning to this work I spent 15 years in the corporate world where I acquired a unique perspective on navigating the challenges of balancing the busy demands of the corporate culture with the foundations of family/relationships, creativity, and self care.
I am dedicated to the pursuit of ongoing growth and development so education, self-reflection, yoga, and meditation are practices that I value and prioritize in my life. I enjoy nature and music, particularly song-writing. I practice from a compassion-focused, client-centred, anti-oppressive, LGBTQ-affirmative framework.
