I am a registered psychotherapist (qualifying) that believes in implementing a strength-based approach to helping patients achieve mental wellness. I would describe myself as an integrative person-centred therapist who utilizes theories and techniques from cognitive-behavioural, attachment, solution-focused, gestalt, narrative, and psychodynamic orientations.
I completed my Master of Education in counselling psychology at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, and my internship in psychotherapy at Daya Counselling Centre in London, Ontario.
My clinical experience has involved conducting individual psychotherapy with a diverse population of adolescents and adults presenting with a broad spectrum of concerns, including depression, anxiety, self-confidence issues, family problems, addictions, lack of stable employment, career indecision, and identity confusion. At McKenzie Psychology, I provide treatment for adolescents and adults under the supervision of Dr. Sandra McKenzie.
I am inspired to be a life-long learner in the field of psychology. My continual aim is to better myself and to build my knowledge base in such a way to best support my patients. From a person-centred perspective, I seek to create an environment in which a safe therapeutic relationship can emerge, such that the conditions for meaningful patient change can develop.
