Registered Social Service Worker
Hello and welcome to my website. I'm a Social Service Worker registered with the OCSWSSW who is here to help you reach your therapy goals or support you on your current journey. I believe everyone possesses the strengths to achieve their goals and I would be honoured to help you with that. For more information about my services and what I can do for you, please browse through my website and do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
Let me share a bit about myself. I have been working in social services for the past 5 years. I previously worked in the private sector and was feeling very unfulfilled. While on maternity leave with my third child, I decided it was time for a change. After struggling with my own mental health issues in the postpartum period I decided I wanted to help others who struggle with mental health issues. I returned to school where I obtained my Social Service Worker diploma and at the same time I earned my certificate in Addictions Studies from McMaster University. I have also completed training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders through Postpartum Support International. Since graduating 5 years ago, I’ve worked in Mental Health and Addictions counselling. I’ve also worked on my own personal development, focusing on mindfulness and meditation. I love running, playing team sports and reading as my go-to self-care activities.
I believe that all of my professional and counselling experience combined with my personal journey with my own mental health have shaped me into the non-judgemental and compassionate counsellor that I am today.
Using various therapeutic modalities and techniques, including a focus on mind-body connection and mindfulness, I can help you achieve your therapy goals. In addition to providing individual counselling and couples counselling, I facilitate group therapy. My office is located in Oshawa, ON and I offer weekend and evening appointments. I also provide online counselling to clients throughout Canada. The cost for a 50 minute individual session is $110.
