ABOUT ME

Square HeadshotI am a clinical social worker providing psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families who are struggling to make sense of life and the challenges they face. With over 12 years working in the field of mental health, I am passionate about helping people find meaning and purpose in their life.

I came to this field by way of my love for music; it’s ability to elicit emotion, its power for healing and connection. It has always been a source of healing and a refuge for me. After working as a music therapist in palliative care and oncology, supporting people facing the end of life- for themselves or for a loved one; I wanted a way to broaden my scope and strengthen my ability to be able to reflect and process the palpable emotions that arose during music therapy sessions. I completed my Masters of Social Work at McGill University and I have additional training in mindfulness based cognitive therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, EMDR (eye-movement-desensitization and reprocessing) and maternal mental health/perinatal mood.

I bring compassion and creativity to the therapeutic relationship and work in a collaborative manner with my clients to gain insight to the root of the problem.  My areas of expertise are in loss and grief, parenting and perinatal mood, depression/anxiety, work/life balance, and trauma (My Approach).

When not working with clients, I love hanging out with my family, making music, and reading cookbooks.
