I have been working as a mental health clinician for nearly 20 years. My work has included supporting adults, children, youth, and families to experience mental health and wellness. I have a Master’s of Social Work Degree with a Clinical Specialization and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
I apply a strengths-based approach coupled with a trauma-informed lens. I believe people have the ability and the right to re-author their stories and I value healthy connections with oneself and with others.
My training and experience includes working in adult mental health in-patient, community-based child, adolescent, and family mental health, working with vulnerable populations in the inner-city, parent capacity building, parent group facilitation, mental health consultation to professionals, psycho-education, providing presentations, and teaching.
My practice centres on supporting healthy relationships including those we have with ourselves, which is foundational in influencing the relationships we have with others, including with our friends, our partners, our children, and our families. Many of us spend time, energy, and money decluttering our homes and workspaces. I believe our hearts, minds, and emotions deserve to be decluttered too. Some of us are holding on to emotions and habits that no longer serve a helpful role in our lives, but that can change. If you’re reading this profile, you’re ready for change. That’s a good thing, and I can help you let go of the clutter.
I can support you to deal with and let go of anger, fear, anxiety, worries, difficulties in relationships, parenting struggles, conflict and concerns and challenges that are occupying your time and energy. I can help you to experience increased emotional and mental health, positive relationships with yourself and others and increased confidence in parenting.
Life can be hard. Sometimes we deal with challenges and want a solution yet don’t know where to start. If it’s time for you to begin to let go of the concerns and challenges that are occupying your time and energy then feel free to contact me so I can help you begin your journey of living without excessive emotional and mental clutter.
