I completed my Master of Social Work at Carleton University, and have worked with the public sector, in community, health care, and private practice settings. I offer therapy, consultation, and delivery of trainings, workshops, and retreats.

In my privtae practice, I specialize in trauma and grief, and I'm primarily an EMDR therapist. I'm an EMDR Certitifed Therapist and EMDRIA Approved Consultant, but I offer other modalities as well.


I believe professional development is a career long responsibility, and I'm always updating and upgrading my skill set. As a Consultant at EMDR Consulting and the Crisis & Trauma Resource Institute, I share my knowledge through hands-on assistance and engaging training. Additionally, I provide consultation and support to fellow Social Workers and Psychotherapists, enriching their clinical practice and outcomes.

My commitment to foster positive change and enhance well-being in my community includes leadership roles as Co-Director of the West Ottawa Wellness clinic, and Vice Chair of the Board of Directors at the West Ottawa Community Resource Centre. My latest projects include creating custom workshops for mental health professionals, and writing a self-help book to support those experiencing grief and loss. 


From therapy to wellness retreats - my services will be personalized to suit your needs. Let's connect!
