I am a Social Worker (MSW) at the Toronto location here at Restore Balance. I have completed my Bachelor of Social Work at University of Windsor and a Master of Social Work at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. My concentration for my Masters was Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. During my MSW internship, I was able to apply my knowledge in inpatient care with adolescent clients. My areas of specialty include: anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, self-esteem issues, and substance use.
I also have experience incorporating techniques such as, mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, and behavioural activation. At Restore Balance, I use a cognitive behavioural approach to treat adolescent and adult clients. Throughout treatment, I believe in emphasizing and acknowledging one’s strengths and facilitating the client’s self-empowerment. I conduct therapy online or in person from the Toronto office and look forward to meeting you!
When it comes time to restoring balance in my life I like to read, practice yoga, and bake. I also love travelling and have been to 19 countries thus far!
