I am a member in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and a Clinical Fellow of the American/Ontario Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (A/OAMFT).In addition to being a Clinical Fellow of the Canadian Association of Marriage & Family Therapists (CAMFT).
I am also a certified member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP). I graduated from Tyndale University in 1999 with a Master of Divinity Degree (with a specialization in counselling). In 2015, I also graduated with a Master of Psychology degree from the Adler Graduate Professional School. I am a life-long learner and would consider myself a "professional student". I am currently completing my provisional hours in the Province of Alberta as a Registered Provisional Psychologist.
I am hoping to help you (and/or your partner/family) in your journey towards wellness by being able to cope with the struggles you may be experiencing. By working with me, I am hopeful that you will be able to draw upon your own experiences (just like I did) in order to bring your life back into equilibrium.
I am a Certified Music Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), and I have recently completed the MEd Counselling Psychology program in the Counselling and Psychotherapy field at OISE University of Toronto. I joined Danny Seto’s private practice as a practicum student in September 2020, and completed my placement under his supervision in May 2021. Moving forward, I will be continuing to work in Danny’s clinic.
I have experience working with children, adults, couples, and families. In my past internship, I have employed music-based interventions including therapeutic songwriting, music improvisation, and guided meditation with music, followed by verbal processing and reflection. I use a person-centered and strengths-based approach with an interest in mindfulness-based practices and the principle of non-judging. I also have developed an interest in counselling-based approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Family Systems. I believe in providing and facilitating a safe space for others to define and gain insight into their own experiences. I view the therapeutic relationship as a collaborative process in which I strive to understand and support my client while we work together to create a plan for therapy.
