About

I am completing my Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. I also volunteer in conducting psychiatric research. I tend to take a holistic approach when it comes to working with people, and consider how various biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors can affect their mental health.

I graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) with a specialization in Psychology, in which my thesis focused on mindfulness skills and its benefits. I started to do one-on-one social support at an outpatient psychiatry unit in 2011, where I helped patients with their personal goals and conducted skill-building groups. In 2012, I began volunteering as a research assistant for psychologists and psychiatrists who used research to improve their practices. The past ten years in research have led me to develop an evidence-based approach when working with patients and clients, where I use the latest research to help clients overcome their challenges. Overall, I enjoy collaborating with clients to find a solution and style that works for them. We all come from different backgrounds and lead different lifestyles, and I take this into consideration when working with clients. My goal as a psychotherapist is to support you through your journey, and to empower you and provide you with effective tools that you can use outside of therapy and beyond therapy.
