I am excited to be a part of the 4 Points Health and Wellness team! I have always been passionate about working with people and it truly has been an honour to witness the journey of so many towards fulfillment. As a Registered Provisional Psychologist, my goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for individuals, couples and families as they navigate setbacks and discover their own resiliency.
I take on an eclectic approach in therapy to better suit the client's needs, this involves integrating different modes of therapy involving a client-centered approach, existential based work, cognitive behavioural therapy and play therapy (for children). My personal goal as a clinician is to offer a compassionate, non-judgemental space to foster psychological growth.
By listening with an open heart, my purpose is to help one recognize their limiting beliefs and begin to focus on their strengths and intrinsic value to unlock full potential.
My passion and curiosity for this field is limitless. I have always been fascinated by the strength of the human spirit and it's resiliency. Its truly a privilege to work in this field and to witness an individual's journey as they strive towards happiness and fulfillment. I look forward to serving you!

At 4 Points, we try to provide physiotherapy services a little differently than a lot of clinics out there. We offer longer assessment times, 1 on 1 treatment throughout the entirety of the booked session, and a focus on evidence-based therapy. So if you’re tired of minimal face-to-face time with your physio, your physio bouncing between multiple clients, or laying on a bed with passive modalities (heat, ice, ultrasound, etc) being used for a majority of your treatment, come give us a shot!
