About me

**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS**

Welcome! I am a Registered Social Worker in good standing with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and the Ontario Association of Social Workers. I am also licensed to practice Social Work in Alberta. In addition, I am registered as a Certified Solution Focused Therapist (CSFT) with the Canadian Council of Professional Certification (CCPC) Global Inc.

 

I have an Honours Bachelors degree in Psychology and a Masters of Social Work degree. I have completed professional training in the following areas: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Solution-Focused Counselling, Mindfulness, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

 

Since 2009, I have worked in community service and health care settings, with the majority of my experience gained at pediatric and adult rehabilitation hospitals in inpatient and outpatient Social Work roles where I have supported individuals, couples, and families through their journey.

 

I now work in my full-time private practice providing online counselling to adults who are struggling with a wide range of issues, including: anxiety, low self-esteem, relationships, stress/burnout, school/work, major life transitions, grief and loss, disability/chronic illness, cultural/ethnic/racial identity, and more. Individual therapy, couples therapy, and solution-focused brief therapy sessions are available.

 

My perspective is that my clients have the inner strength, resilience, and ability to make powerful changes in their lives to achieve their goals and live in a meaningful way. I offer a non-judgmental, client-centred, compassionate, supportive, and solution-focused space to help clients cope with their challenges, create a plan to problem-solve around barriers, and build the life they want to create for themselves.

 

Please connect with me via my website at www.imeaningful.com to book a free 15 minute phone consultation so we can see if we are a good fit. It would be an honour to support you in your journey!
