About Me

I completed my Bachelors of Social Work at McGill University in 2012 and my Masters of Social Work at the University of Toronto in 2016.  In addition to my training as a Social Worker, I have completed various trainings that inform my practice, which are listed below.

Outside of my private practice, I currently provide counselling with survivors of abuse/violence at a community agency in Toronto.  In the past, I’ve worked at other community agencies with trauma survivors and youth in inpatient psychiatric programs.
