I provide a compassionate and supportive environment where we will work on the goals you identify. I provide a warm environment where you can begin to create positive changes in your life. Through listening and guiding, I will be able to help you identify the areas in your life you wish to improve through finding your strengths and building upon them.
Areas of Expertise:
My rate is $180/hour and many benefits will cover my services. Check with your provider to ensure they cover a Masters of Social Work/Registered Social Worker!
I enjoy working with a variety of clients from children to adults who are struggling in some area or areas of their life. You could be encountering a mental health concern, trauma, career stress, or life transition. I help support you in reaching your goals YOU identify, using a variety of techniques. As the driver in therapy, you decide what is right for you.
I enjoy finding creative ways to help people express themselves, whether through traditional talk therapy, or finding an expressive art method or EMDR to help facilitate healing.
I use a client centred approach. This means you are in the drivers seat. You have the opportunity to choose what you want to talk about or not talk about. My job is to help you decide by guiding, and at times, challenging you, in a safe and warm environment.
I am a member of EMDR Canada and EMDR International Association. I am currently in supervision to become a certified EMDR therapist. I have completed advanced trainings in EMDR to include the early trauma approach, somatic interventions, and Ego State interventions.
