Let's get to know each other.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I specialize in working with highly sensitive individuals and those who struggle with perfectionism, self-criticism, overwhelm, and low self-esteem.

I'll never forget the day that I discovered that high sensitivity is a known, well-researched trait.

So much clicked for me that day. This hunch that I operated a little bit differently than most was validated. I finally understood why I often needed more time to re-group after social events, or why I felt everything so deeply. 

Once I made this discovery about myself, I was able to drop the self-judgement regarding my sensitivity and find the tools that supported me to live a more balanced life. Through doing so, I've come to appreciate my sensitivity, and have learned to recognize the innate gifts that come with this trait. In my role as a therapist, it means I am deeply empathetic, compassionate, and sensitive to the subtleties that my clients share that may sometimes be overlooked. 

I found the path to becoming a therapist after working in the corporate world at a company that provided in-house coaching. Working with my coach made me realize I liked her job way more than I liked mine. I longed to experience more meaning and impact in my work. This longing led me to pursue my Masters in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. 

Helping others find more happiness and balance in their daily lives is what I care most deeply about and I believe I have found my life's work. When I'm not with clients, I'm probably reading, in nature somewhere, chatting with a friend, meditating, or spending time with my pug named Charlie. 

My Credentials

Continuing Education

Clinical Supervision

Since I am still completing my required hours towards full licensure with the CRPO, I work under the supervision of two Registered Psychotherapists who provide consultation and help inform my approach in my work with clients. This helps ensure I am able to deliver the highest quality of care to my clients.
