My childhood love for the arts sparked my interest in understanding human emotions, and taught me of the power that self-expression and storytelling can have. My work teaching fitness classes for over a decade enhanced the desire to further my love of helping people. Both the arts and fitness unknowingly led me to become a therapist… and it just felt right.

Therapy, movement, and creativity have immensely impacted my life and helped me through some of my most difficult times. I have also had the pleasure of witnessing these same changes in others through my work professionally. I am now passionately on a mission to continue to share in these incredible modalities with others and to help them too to find a better quality of life.

I am an Ontario-based master’s level Registered Psychotherapist and Registered Yoga Teacher. Additionally, I have a B.A. (Hons) in Devised Theatre, training in Expressive Arts, and I teach dance fitness classes.

My specialization is in working with trauma/PTSD, anxiety, and depression. By integrating talk therapy with mindfulness-based, arts-based, and somatic approaches I aim to help clients strengthen their mind-body connection and empower them to find emotional release/self-expression.
