Akeso Stepping Stones
I am an Occupational Therapist that was afforded the wonderful opportunity of having my first formal employment at Akeso Stepping Stones. I have previously worked in the psychiatric field but now in the more localized area of addiction and recovery. I have always loved working in the psychiatric field and find great joy in assisting others to reach their full potential. The mind and mental health is something that I have always felt as being overlooked and I am a big advocate for mental health.
The modalities used in therapy include individual/group therapy, psychoeducation, counselling and DBT.
I am a single mom and very family orientated, trying to spend as much time as possible with family. I enjoy beach days, hiking and baking as well as reading whenever I have a spare moment. I am of the Christian faith and it guides my actions in daily life, and inspires me to be compassionate, kind and devoted to others. This assists me in dealing with situations in my personal life as well as with my patients.
