I have always had a passion for helping others, and have dedicated my career to doing so. My mission is to be part of the journey with you; to help you overcome obstacles and learn ways to cope with life's challenges. I strive to employ an empathetic, genuine, and caring approach with the children, adolescents, and adults with whom I work.
I have been working as a clinical social worker for over the past 10 years. I completed my undergraduate degree in Social Work and Honours Psychology at McMaster University, and later graduated with my Masters of Social Work from the University of Toronto, specializing in Health and Mental Health. I am currently a PhD Candidate and Course Instructor at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto.
I am trained in a range of treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Mindfulness Techniques. In addition to my clinical practice, I have co-authored multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals and have recently co-authored a book chapter examining clinical approaches to address trauma.
I am a registered member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and a member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers.
