A Lifelong Dedication to Mental Health and Psychotherapy

 

Characterized as empathetic, imaginative and serene, these traits resonate deeply with my approach to psychotherapy. My journey in the field of mental health began at the University of Guelph, where I pursued my Bachelor's degree. During this time, I actively contributed as a Peer Counsellor for the Student Support Network, aiding my peers and cultivating a foundation in supportive counseling.

The Educational Pathway to Becoming a Licensed Psychotherapist

 

My academic path continued at Yorkville University, where I completed my Masters of Counselling Psychology. This program included an eight-month intensive practicum where I worked with teens and adults who had experience complex trauma. This phase was crucial in refining my skills, particularly in assisting clients who were navigating through trauma and betrayal trauma.

Embracing Diversity and Inclusivity in Psychotherapy
A BIPOC Therapist's Perspective: Integrating Cultural Sensitivity

 

As a BIPOC therapist, I am acutely aware of the nuances of oppression, marginalization, patriarchy and racism. My approach to psychotherapy is inclusive and tailored to each client's unique needs, ensuring that these critical conversations are part of the therapeutic process.

Supporting Those Who Help Others: A Focus on Compassion Fatigue and Burnout

 

I am particularly dedicated to aiding those in caregiving roles, including frontline workers, therapists and other caregivers. My work often involves guiding them through issues like compassion fatigue and burnout, offering support to those who are accustomed to supporting others.
