I am a Registered Psychotherapist in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO Registration #005767). I am also a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapist Association and a member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP). I received my Master of Counselling Psychology (MA) from Yorkville University.

My area of focus is eating disorder treatment. I have both specific training, supervision and experience in this area. In addition, I have training and/or certification in the following areas (which I treat on their own, or concurrently):

• Enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy training from Credo-Oxford
• EMDR Basics from Niagara Stress & Trauma Clinic
• Introduction to DBT from Broadview Psychology
• Radically-Open DBT from Radicallyopen.net - Levels 1 and 2
• Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Fundamental Skills from OISE at the University of Toronto
• Cybercounselling: Level 1 from Therapy Online
• Cognitive Processing Therapy
• Foundations of Mindfulness and Applied Specialization in Mindfulness certifications from the University of Toronto
• MBCT 8-Week Group Participation and MBCT Basics from the Centre for Mindfulness Studies
• ASIST Suicide Intervention from LivingWorks
• Mental Health First Aid from The Mental Health Commission of Canada
• General training on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder from ECHO OCD

I have been working in mental health and therapeutic fields for over five years and started Kernel of Wisdom in 2017. My experience includes working as a clinician with The Trauma Centre, as an Eating Disorder Counsellor at Bellwood Health Services, a Counsellor at Georgian College, experience with Catholic Children’s Aid Society, and other therapeutic work I have done teaching mindfulness meditation for over three years or through a number of not-for-profit organizations.

Prior to engaging in psychotherapy, I received my Bachelor of Education from York University, which now helps to support my ability to teach individuals and groups, as well as my ability to work with adolescents. I also have 8+ years of experience working in marketing and digital media, giving me a sound understanding of what work looks like for most of my clients, and the types of challenges that come up in the average workplace.
