I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I am a Certified EMDR therapist & a Certified Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapist. These are two very effective evidence-based therapies for Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Phobias & Eating disorders. I am also an EMDR Approved Consultant, CRPO Supervisor and IFS informed EMDR Certified Consultant.
My education has been in the field of Counselling and Psychology. I hold a Masters in Counselling (specialization in Educational Psychology) from the University of Calgary and a Bachelors of Science in Psychology. Additionally, I am a lifelong learner, and continue to take trainings and attend consultations to enhance my competence and effectiveness with my clients.
Following my goal of seeking and spreading knowledge, I facilitate IFS Level 1 trainings with the IFS International Institute and IFS informed EMDR trainings with the Syzygy Institute. I also enjoy providing clinical consultation and supervision for other therapists seeking professional development and support.
With over eight years of experience as a psychotherapist, the focus of my work has been on treating PTSD and relational trauma. I believe the hallmark of therapeutic success is the relationship between clients and the therapist. I try my level best to provide my clients with unconditional positive regard and wholeheartedly focus on understanding their experience with genuine curiosity and compassion. My goal as the therapist is to help clients connect with their inner wisdom and feel truly understood, valued and connected. This helps collaboratively implement an effective treatment plan, and ensures clients meet their goals.
I live in Waterloo, Ontario with my husband and two kids (13 year old and 5 year old). In my spare time, I love reading, learning (anything and everything), watching movies, cleaning and organizing, being in nature and hiking on trails in forests or around lakes (especially the Georgian Bay).
