MSW, RSW, CYCP, Child, Youth, and Adult Therapist. Specialty in GTIm (Gifted, Talented, Intense-minded)
I am an MSW/RSW currently practicing within Acorn and Anchor Therapy Centre, under the clinical supervision of Michelle Guy. I have worked as a Child and Youth Care Practitioner since 2016, primarily with youth who experience mental health challenges, school avoidance, and family relationship dysfunction. In my work with individuals and families, I use a Relation, Client Centred and Integrative approach, drawing on elements from different therapeutic modalities. These include Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy, Play and Art Therapy, and others. I integrate trauma-informed approaches into my work with clients, to build trust and emotional safety as the foundation of working together toward their goals.
I believe that being client-centred means being flexible in what approaches I use and basing it on the needs of the individual, to meet you where you are at and move forward, together!
