MY THERAPEUTIC APPROACH

Personalized. Supportive. Empowering.

The essence of my work is to help you identify the core challenges and setbacks in your life and overcome them with confidence. Together we'll create a treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals. My approach is trauma-informed and combines elements of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and DBT (dialectical behaviour therapy). I am an Art Therapist and believe creativity is healing and accessible to everyone.

Raised in a small town in Ontario, I have lived in Toronto, Montreal, Saskatoon, and now call Owen Sound home -- it's not too big and not too small. Family-oriented, I encourage clients to aim for a healthy balance between work and home life, and try to practice this myself. I am known for my compassion, professionalism, and great sweater collection. I enjoy reading, buying art supplies, and exploring new places.
