I live in a little house on a hill in Guelph Ontario with my two curious bunnies and my loving husband. I enjoy playing the ukulele, making art as my own form of therapy and doing yoga.
I discovered the healing potential and power of art as a mode of expression when I was completing my Bachelor of Fine Arts. I quickly fell in love with activist art and was inspired by artists such as Yoko Ono, Jenny Holzer, General Idea and Felix Gonzalez Torres. I quickly realized I wasn’t just in love with the art but also the act of empowering and giving voice to those facing adversity.
This inspired me to pursue a post graduate degree in Social Work from University of Waterloo and later a Clinical Masters Degree in Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University. I now have 8 years of experience working with diverse populations facing adversity. I specialize in Trauma Treatment and believe that our past experiences can greatly impact how we think, feel and behave. I have expertise in arts based methods, cognitive processing therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, attachment and narrative therapy.
I have dedicated my life to working with those living with issues of trauma and mental illness. I find myself constantly inspired by my clients. I know how much strength it takes to seek help and I would be honoured to sit with you.
