    My social work counseling practice is formed on the foundation of empathy and compassion, acceptance and refuge, insight and empowerment. My approach is client-centered, strengths based, and trauma informed.

    WHAT I’M LIKE AS A THERAPIST

    Informed by my work as Licensed Direct Entry Midwife, my counseling practice centers on
    understanding how best to support women, mothers, parents, and their babies, as they journey
    into parenthood. I strive to empower clients to advocate for growth, healing, and support that is
    most fitting of their needs.

    Through a holistic and therapeutic approach, we will work to build your inner strength, create
    new self-awareness, cultivate positive self-regard, and explore emerging thoughts and behaviours
    that are limiting health and wellbeing. I believe in your self-determination and will work
    alongside you to achieve your goals.
    In essence, I strive to understand what makes you sing, celebrate, cry, or mourn while
    recognizing that in each and every person lies their own best healer.
