Hello and Welcome

It takes a lot of strength to take those first initial steps towards reaching out to others for help and I hope I can meet with you as you begin this journey and work with you towards meaningful change.

I have been a registered nurse for over twenty-five years and have spent most of my career in critical care in the intensive care unit. Caring for others as a healthcare professional or as a family member can be a difficult and isolating experience. Stress, burnout, trauma, anxiety, grief, and loss can be among some of these challenges, and I hope my unique background in nursing can offer awareness and understanding to be of support throughout this process.

I believe in the strength and resiliency in all of us and helping others to recognize these inner resources as part of the process of change is part of my philosophy and humanistic belief.

I have a strength-based and person-centered approach and believe healing begins through compassion, collaboration, and commitment. My inclusive practice is grounded by the importance of offering safety, respect, and a non-judgment space to share and explore feelings, thoughts, and emotions.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Ottawa, and I am completing my Master of Arts and Counseling Psychology from Yorkville University. As a psychotherapy intern, I will be working under the supervision of Yosie Martinez (RP) and Yena Bi (RP).

I hope we can work together.
