Training & Licences

I earned a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology (OISE/UT), and am currently completing doctoral studies in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I hold a certificate in Narrative Therapy (Intensive) from the Narrative Therapy Centre of Toronto.

I also earned Bachelors degrees in Philosophy and Sociology, as well as Film Production


My graduate training engaged me in current trends and ideas in individual psychotherapy, group process, family and couples counselling, professional ethics, brief counselling strategies and critical diversity issues in counselling.

My post-graduate training offered me coursework, clinical practica and internships in process experiential emotion-focused (PE/EFT), relational (e.g. interpersonal, intersubjectivity, and relational-cultural) approaches to psychotherapy in general, mixed psychotherapeutic approaches to working through complex (relational) trauma in particular, and clinical supervision
