I hold a curiosity to learn about the human condition and how each of us uniquely navigates living in this world. This curiosity informed my work as an actor. I found freedom of expression by assuming characters distant from my personal experience. Over time this work helped me to bump up against my own barriers with my identity and inner struggles, which eventually brought me to therapy.
The practice of showing up to weekly therapy sessions alongside an experienced, caring therapist anchored and enriched my life. It guided me on a path toward self-actualization. I became interested in offering to others the process of self-learning, healing, and growth that I had experienced. My curiosity further led me on my path toward training in psychotherapy.
My psychotherapy training and education involved 6 years of academic and experiential study in a diverse range of therapy modalities including psychodynamic and existential-integrative psychotherapy. I have been in private practice since 2017. I am a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT). I am also a graduate of the Randolph College for the Performing Arts.
As a therapist I draw from my background as a former athlete and artist, along with my experiences in clinical work and training. My personal experiences as a client of therapy allow me to connect with clients from a place of empathy, respect, and hope that therapy can help to transform one’s life.
I love to exist with others in a space of play, whether it be through means of conversation or movement. I am inspired by the potential that exists within a felt sense of freedom. Outside of therapy, I love to dance, bake, spend time in nature and with loved ones.
