Personally Speaking

I am a Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist with over 10 years of combined experience in
hospitals, primary care and community settings. I have training in multiple modalities including
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Because our individual needs vary, I adapt and integrate
concepts from different modalities based on my clients’ needs. I am also currently pursing my
Family Mediation Certificate which will allow me to expand the scope of services I am able to
offer.


Whether you are struggling to cope, experiencing anxiety or depression or looking to enhance
your relationship, I am here to help. As a mother and a partner juggling a busy schedule, I know
first-hand how important our mental well-being is to living a happy life.


My career journey has included varied experiences in different settings. I previously worked as a
social worker in ICU and Acute Care at both Credit Valley Hospital and Mississauga Hospitals. I
was also the assigned Social Worker to the Pandemic Response Unit at the height of the COVID-
19 crisis. 


Outside of my professional role, I have a very strong commitment to supporting our community
and advocating for systemic change. I was previously elected in 2014 as a Public School Board
Trustee for Wards 9 and 10 in Mississauga and served for eight years from 2014-2022.  I led the
charge to increase support for special education, advance numerous infrastructure projects, and
was a champion for equity issues for children in the school system.


At Couples Therapy Centre, I offer individual as well as couples’ therapy. I look forward to
helping you navigate the complex emotional journey life can be, gain greater awareness and
coping skills and providing you with a safe space to share your experiences.
