In my practice, I take great pride in building strong rapport and therapeutic relationships with my clients. I use a gentle, empathic, and compassionate approach to therapy to allow my clients to feel safe, relaxed, understood, and validated in every session. When appropriate, I also find a lot of benefit in using a light-hearted and humorous approach as laughter can be the best medicine. I utilize a combination of several different therapy modalities to create a unique and client centered experience for each of my clients. These modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Strengths Based Approach, Mindfulness, and Supportive Therapy.
Originally from Canada, I completed my Bachelors of Social Work Degree at the University of Windsor and crossed the border to complete my Masters of Social Work Degree at Wayne state. I have many years of experience working with a variety of clients with various mental health concerns. Some of these concerns included: anxiety disorders, mood disorders, psychotic/delusional disorders, substance use disorders, personality disorders, and survivors of trauma.
I work mostly with adults ages 18+. I enjoy working with all sorts of clients but I have a particular interest in working with young women ages 16-35, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and individuals who are pre or post bariatric surgery. During our time together, we will focus on building self-love, self-esteem, and confidence while challenging and breaking down the negative beliefs you may have accumulated over the years. I aim to create a safe, non-judgement space for my client where they can feel comfortable and relaxed.
