I am a Registered Psychotherapist and a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) under the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I was born in Scarborough and raised in Maple, Ontario.

I completed my Masters of Arts (M.A.) in Community and Clinical Mental Health Counselling at the University of Detroit Mercy in Michigan, U.S. I have experience working with strictly court mandated clients during my experience in Detroit, Michigan coming from a population of diverse backgrounds. My experience ranges from trauma, domestic violence, sexual assault, abuse, homicidal, anger management, grief and loss, relationships problem, self-esteem/confidence, and complex mental health issues.

I have a strong clinical interest in trauma and sexual assault and its impacts on individuals, families, and communities. I possess extensive experience working as an individual and family therapist that has provided services to adults, youths, and their parents.
