Registered Social Worker
“Mental health is important to me, as I am sure it probably is to you as well. I believe that at its core, therapeutic practice is rooted in the belief that our problems do not lie in us but between; in our relationship with ourselves and with others.
I’ve had the privilege of working with young people, individuals and families in co-creating strategies, skills, fostering further self-exploration through connection and gentle curiosity – grounded in their lived experiences, inherent wisdom and strengths. Compassion and honesty are virtues which I believe are paramount to cultivating a safe space. These virtues, partnered with an environment of non-judgement, encouragement and my sense of humour, work to create a collaborative capacity building process.
Some facts about me: I re-energize by practicing meditation, journaling, writing poetry, cooking and I enjoy spending time outdoors.
Mental health issues are inevitable in this thing we call life. And I hope that you will also have the courage to reach out for support if you are in need of it”.
