I believe that each person is the expert in their own life. From time to time though, we all need a little extra help supporting ourselves through the process of life and the challenges it provides us. Through a supportive, collaborative, strengths-based approach to psychotherapy, I am able to guide my clients to understand themselves on a deeper level, to develop and implement plans for change, and to help heal, find new meaning, and adopt new perspectives. I have a private practice in Whitby, ON, supporting children (3 yrs+), adolescents, and adults throughout the Durham region as well as online through distance therapy. , My areas of specialization include child & adolescent issues, anger management, ADHD, Autism/ASD, trauma & recovery (incl. sexual assault & domestic violence), confidence and self-esteem, anxiety, and women's issues. As a Registered Psychotherapist with CRPO & Expressive Arts Practitioner, I utilize a variety of creative treatment modalities including Expressive Arts Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, Play Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, and Mindfulness-Based practices in combination to support my clients with their unique needs and goals.
