She considers it a privilege to work in this field and is committed to promoting the value of social work in her personal and professional life. Having worked in family service agencies as well as addiction services she has provided assessment, counselling, psychotherapy, and wellness education in both rural and urban communities. In 2010 she opened her private practice and has been offering counselling and psychotherapy services with a particular focus on helping clients build secure, connected and satisfying relationships in their lives.
She completed an undergraduate degree at Queen’s University and a Masters of Social Work at the University of Toronto.
