I completed a BSc Psychology (2007) at the University of Ottawa with Dr. Susan Johnson, focusing on Emotion Focused Therapy. I completed an MSc in Couple and Family Therapy (2009) at the University of Guelph, where my work focused on relational therapy models.
I'm a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist (RMFT) with the Canadian Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (CAMFT), and a Certified Couple and Family Therapist (CCFT) with the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). Additionally, I have training in Brief Narrative Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy for couples, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
After completing my formal education, I moved to Woodstock, Ontario. And, don't let the alphabet soup fool you! I'm a farm girl at heart, having grown up on a farm in Southern Ontario. When I am not in the therapy room (which is one of my favourite places!), I am spending time with my family as a mom to 2 young children, who keep me busy and test the limits daily! I am also part of the local United Way, which keeps me involved in the local community.
I look forward to connecting with you to see if we might be a good fit to work together!
