I completed my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University and am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario. I am Jamaican born, and a proud mother of a wonderful son. I love spending my time with my son in the park, being in nature, hiking, visiting waterfalls, and riding bikes. My motto is, “there is something positive to take out of every struggle we experience in life.” I embrace and encourage change in my clients. I strongly believe that every individual possesses the strength they need to foster the change required for healing.
I presently have over eight years of experience working with children, youth, families, and caregivers who are experiencing developmental disabilities such as autism, ADHD, FASD, and others. I also have experience working with individuals and families experiencing mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, burnout, relationship conflicts and grief.
Through my work with individuals, I adapt a strength base approach where I believe that everyone has the innate ability to foster change. I also believe that each person is different; Therefore, I incorporate different evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Solutions Focused Therapy in my practice. My years of experience with children and families have fostered an “holistic” approach to helping others.
My work with individuals is based on compassion, respect, self-determination, acceptance and most importantly, a strong therapeutic bond.
