I have a Master’s of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) through Yorkville University, and prior to this, a B.A. from Queen’s University. I completed my Level 1 & 2 Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy training through the Satir Institute of the Pacific (SIP), Gottman’s Level 1 Method Couples Clinical Training and have an ongoing connection to the work of Dr. Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Therapy. I also have experience in Non-Violent Communication and a daily practice in mindfulness, especially appreciating the work of Pema Chodrun and Dr. Tara Brach.
I’m married to a wonderful man, and have 2 children who are young adults and a teenage stepson. When not at work, I love spending time with my family and our dog, all things outdoors, mountain biking, and traveling.
