I hold a certificate in play -based treatment of trauma.
I'm an experienced clinician who graduated with honours from her bachelor and master degree. The field of psychology explores key concepts on how to create change and reach our goals. I use research-based techniques to help clients work on their issues. Bringing unconcious patterns to light, reprocessing past experiences and establishing attainable goals for the weeks ahead often give us the momentum to move forward while freeing us from old ways of thinking and behaving. These approaches push us to use new neural pathways or change established ones which create long-lasting changes.

I also use play as a medium for reaching struggling kids.
There are many times when life becomes more than we are able to handle. Sometimes life breaks us and leaves us feeling lost and alone. Other moments we feel like we are stumbling along in the dark, searching for meaning and direction, or just wishing we felt less pain. Finding a way back can be easier if another person shares some of the journey. A genuine and safe therapeutic relationship can be the starting place for rediscovering inner resources, developing new coping skills, and rekindling hope.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, sad and helpless? Or are you constantly feeling on the edge, worry excessively or sometimes don’t understand why you act a certain way? While stress, physical and emotional pain, trauma and other overwhelming experiences are unavoidable parts of life, we can certainly learn to respond to these experiences in ways that are healing and strengthen our inner resilience. I can work with you in a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment, to help you explore what you need to heal and grow, so you can lead a happier, healthier and more productive life.

My use of art and play therapy techniques, mindfulness, and positive psychology are customized to match your unique experiences.
Life is difficult. We all face challenges that leave us feeling sad, angry, overwhelmed and at times, stuck. Feelings change our behaviours and soon we find ourselves snapping, hating our jobs, drinking, and not eating or sleeping, among other symptoms. Suddenly we barely recognize ourselves. If you have ever told yourself that this is not the person you want to be, you are not alone. Seeking professional help is the first step in making positive change. If you are consumed by anger, hurt, worry, grief, suicidal thoughts, or using self-harm or poor coping to control pain, I can help.

I have received additional training in sand tray therapy, play therapy , art based therapy, child parent relationship therapy, trauma and suicide assessment/prevention.
It is my belief that therapy is both a dialogue and collaborative relationship between the therapist and their clients. I aim to establish a safe, trusting and encouraging environment for my clients. However, I also strive towards building resiliency, raising self awareness and connecting my clients to a greater sense of community. I enjoy working with clients from all age groups (children, adolescents and adults). I have been offering therapeutic services in the community for 6 years.
