I am a Registered Social Worker with over 20 years of experience supporting people with the navigation of biopsychosocial stressors resulting from life changes, family violence, houselessness, substance use, tricky relationships, grief and loss, caregiving, and multiple forms of trauma.
I have authorization to perform restricted activities as a social worker, and experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and seniors.
My approach is anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, trauma-specific, and multi-modal, including Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural (DBT)-informed regulation and mindfulness techniques, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I believe that all experiences of distress should be approached in context, and with genuine compassion.
My client focus includes adult and young adult individuals, couples, and military/first responders with concerns regarding symptoms of anxiety, depression, poor self-esteem, anger, chronic pain, and experiences of trauma.
