H.B.S.W, M.S.W, R.S.W
I have a profound respect for the therapeutic process. I acknowledge that every human being has a story, some parts painful, and other parts hopeful. I hope to draw on that hope with you, help you discover your existing resilience, strength, and ability to cope through the hard times.
I use a culturally sensitive, non-judgmental and compassionate approach in my practice. My commitment to working from an Anti-Oppressive/Anti-Racist lens lends me the ability to see how intersectionality shapes one’s experiences. I acknowledge the impact of systems and discrimination and how those complex layers can potentially exacerbate certain responses to trauma. Sometimes we all need a lift in developing the muscle of self-discovery. In our time together, I will honour your life experiences, help you tap into your feelings, and assist you gently in discovering what is hindering you from feeling self-assured and fulfilled. My hope is that you will discover a greater sense of peace, clarity, and insight on how to work through discomfort.
I carry a Master’s degree from the University of Toronto in Social Work, with a specialization in Children and Families. Over the last several years, I have worked with various clients who come from diverse backgrounds. I have extensive experience in working with people who are survivors of abuse, living with addiction, and mental health challenges such as anxiety and depression, as examples. I am formally trained in various therapeutic models that I draw from in order to develop a tailored approach for my clients. Every individual is unique and deserves a space to be seen as such.
I provide services in English, Kutchi and Spanish.
I am a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, and of the Ontario Association of Social Workers.
