About Me

​​I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP #2422) and Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC #4420), with a Master of Education in Counselling from the University of Ottawa. I work with adolescent and adult clients.

My work relies on building a warm and open therapeutic alliance through which clients may investigate their beliefs about themselves and others, explore their personal histories and relational patterns, and develop new strategies to gain awareness and regulation of their emotional reactions. I employ a client-centred approach that integrates a range of therapeutic orientations including a focus on family of origin, emotions, self-compassion, acceptance and mindfulness. 


From 2006 to 2017, I worked primarily in university settings as a counsellor for young adults. During these years I was heavily involved in developing post-secondary mental health programming. I helped to create and run Carleton University’s From Intention to Action (FITA) program, which supports students through 1-on-1 counselling. At the University of Calgary, I founded a student support program named STEPS, which has since continued to grow.

Personally and professionally, I strongly believe in the social and emotional benefits of participation in the performing arts. In my personal time, I help to operate the Kanata Acting Studio.
