My Role at the YWC:
Welcome! I am a registered Social Worker, and a Clinical Therapist at the Youth Wellness Centre on the Mobile Team. I use a variety of clinical approaches to work through impactful life experiences; some of the main modalities used are CPT, CBT, DBT, and Solution Focus Brief Therapy. Through Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality, we can collaborate to cultivate a meaningful and fulfilling life. I use an intersectional lens to honor each person I work with, and in the therapeutic space, you can expect someone who is empathetic, collaborative, and strengths-based in their approach. Together, we will work on developing effective coping skills and strategies for validating your experiences in a way that creates greater balance in your life. Furthermore, as a Clinical Therapist, I assist with the drop-in counselling we offer, and as a member of the Mobile Team, I aim to reduce barriers to treatment through traveling and working closely with other resources in the community.
In addition to offering individual therapy, I co-facilitate and help to develop a number of clinical groups. Group offers the development of skills and personal growth in a setting that fosters giving and receiving support from the community.
