Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist 

Over the years, I’ve gained relevant experience working within different interdisciplinary teams in medical and community health settings. Through my clinical work, I have always been dedicated and devoted to the therapeutic process by providing a safe and trusting environment.

My passion for this field started while completing a post Graduate degree in Addiction and Mental Health. Since then, my desire to help and support others has brought me to further my education by completing a Bachelor of Arts (Honours), specialized in Human Relation and Spirituality. After graduating, my inspiration for this work lead me to further my pursuit by completing a Master’s degree in Counselling, Psychotherapy and Spirituality, with a specialization in couple and family therapy.

 

In parallel to my clinical experience and my education,
I have completed significant additional clinical training:  

  • Self-in-Relationship Psychotherapy (SIRP): Institute for Self-in Relationship Psychotherapy (in progress)

  • Intensive Sex Therapy Training Program: University of Guelph

  • Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT): International Centre for Excellence in    Emotionally Focused Therapy.

  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT): Joy Health and Research Centre.

  • Acupuncture Detox: National Acupuncture Detoxification Association.

  • SMART Recovery Facilitator

 

Other workshops and training recently completed: Mindfulness, Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Harm reduction, Withdrawal Management with a Concurrent Disorder Perspective, Nonviolent Crisis Intervention Training (NCI), Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), Adolescent Suicide Prevention and Intervention.  

 

I have always placed a strong importance on continuous training in different therapeutic modalities as it allows me to have a therapeutic flexibility to implement treatment plans that are specifically tailored to you.
