About Me

As a registered clinical social worker, I have been providing Mental Health services in the Guelph and Wellington Community for the past 5 years. I have experience working with children and adolescence ranging between 6 to 18 years old with issues in anxiety and depression, trauma and adverse childhood experiences including abuse (physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect), bullying experiences, relocation and immigration as well as attachment based difficulties and interpersonal challenges. My practice aims to support children and teens learn positive and effective ways of dealing with stress and other challenges of daily life.

I have extensive training and practice in attachment-based models of practice and am a reliable coder in the Infant and Preschool Strange Situation Attachment Coding Systems, which I use for video feedback with caregivers.

I welcome clients of all genders, sexual orientations, religions, and cultural backgrounds. Contact me today for a free phone consultation or to book an appointment!
