    MY EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE, AND TRAINING

    I received my Bachelors in Psychology and Art from Bucknell University in 2005. Aftering working for CASA, a foster child mentor program, I decided to pursue my masters in social welfare at University of California, Berkeley, graduating in 2010. Since becoming a social worker, I have had the opportunity to work in child welfare, substance treatment centers, eating disorder treatment as well as in various medical social work settings including gastroenterology and kidney transplant. A constant thread though my work has been helping individuals explore how to live with more self compassion and insight despite trauma, mental health, chronic health conditions, life transitions and other life stressors. I bring empathy, humour and empowerment to my work as well as various modalities to ensure therapy is the right fit for your needs.

    • Anxiety and Depression
    • Assertive Communication & Boundaries
    • Body Image & Self Esteem
