I completed a master’s degree in education from the University of Toronto in 2014 where I studied a wide range of community development and adult learning theory models as well as various counselling frameworks, including narrative, cognitive behavioural, and solution-focused therapies. I have earned certifications from the Centre for Mindfulness Studies in Toronto and the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
I am currently studying at the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy (TIRP). TIRP has been offering a rigorous psychotherapy training program for over 20 years and is one of the few programs to be recognized by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
I have designed and facilitated wellness programs for CAMH, the Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities Community Hospice Program, and the University Health Network. I continue to serve as faculty for the Banff Centre for the Arts.
I also have an active practice in the arts as a filmmaker, performer, and adult educator and bring a holistic and creative approach to my work with clients.
I am in ongoing clinical supervision and am committed to continual professional training and development.
I am a member of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy and am governed by their Code of Ethics.
