Sometimes change can be hard and overwhelming. Being an immigrant, I have experienced the difficulty of making life changing decisions alone and the struggles associated with it. You are not alone. Having lived amongst different cultures, I have adopted a therapeutic approach that is multicultural and culturally sensitive.  I am passionate about working with clients who face challenges with racial identity, school issues and anxiety from transitions in life.  

I also have experience working with those who live with depression, stress, and self-esteem. These issues highly impact our quality of life and our health. Along with different therapeutic approaches, mindfulness can help us heal our relationship between our mind and bodies and it can also help us to be present and relieve some of the stress in our lives. I also use a strength based and person-centered approach in my counselling to help you strengthen your voice and take control of your life. People thrive when they are able to process their thoughts and emotions in a safe space and without judgement. Each person is unique, therefore therapy is not “one size fits all”. Let us find what works for you.  

Professional Background

After having completed my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in French from Memorial University of Newfoundland I have worked with children and youth with mental health issues.  I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I am currently in the process of obtaining my Masters of Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University.

On a Personal Note…

Outside of therapy I enjoy practicing martial arts, particularly Jiu Jitsu, and enjoying the benefits it has had in improving my mental and physical health. I also enjoy being active through weightlifting or hiking in the summer and fall. As balance is necessary for a happy and healthy life, I also enjoy being a homebody and cooking a good meal, spending time at home watching movies and TV shows and video chatting with my loved ones.

Becoming a therapist has been a lifelong goal as I have a desire to help people become the best versions of themselves and I believe everyone should experience being treated with empathy, kindness, and compassion. I look forward to meeting you in our consultation call and I would be honored to be a part of your healing journey.
