My goal is to support your child, alongside yourself as the parent or caregiver, through a holistic and whole-person approach to meet the unique needs of the individual or family system. I specialize in working with children aged 4-12 experiencing a range of social, emotional, and behavioural concerns such as anxiety, autism, attachment issues, self-esteem, ADHD , oppositional defiance, depression, OCD, peer relationships, among others. My holistic approach considers a child's physical, personal, cultural, social, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing as well as cognitive aspects when assessing symptoms and making a treatment plan.

Positive Kids is a provider of holistic ADHD treatment for children and their families. We are the creators of a unique model called "LEPS." Our LEPS Model tackles the complications associated with ADHD with a very high success rate. The acronym stands for LEARNING, EMOTIONAL, PARENTING, SOCIAL skills. We begin by assessing your child’s ADHD symptoms before we go into a more in-depth discovery of what your child’s individual needs are. Once we have determined the initial requirements, we set up a schedule for you and your child, breaking down each part of the program.

Hello, I have been in the field for over 18 years and enjoy working with others to see their true potential. My specialty is working with trauma including: childhood, first responder and single incident (ie. motor vehicle accident). Besides trauma, I help treat people dealing with mood issues such as: depression and bipolar disorder, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder and ADHD . By working through our often overwhelming emotional response to challenges, it allows an opportunity to embrace a more positive response. A healthy balance of connecting in times of need versus the tendency of anxiously attaching or withdrawing.

I have experience working with children and adolescents with a variety of issues with a focus on self esteem, ADHD , and borderline personality disorder.
At times in our lives we experience challenges that feel overwhelming. No matter what is tried, nothing changes and sometimes things seem to get more cloudy, confusing and distressing. My hope is that through learning to approach challenges in a new way, and make sense of where you find yourself - you might find new ways of coping and growing. With a focus on integrative therapy engaging both the brain and the relationships we experience I employ a compassionate approach, seeking new ways of thinking, feeling, and being.

There are many reasons why people pursue counselling. Some want to address specific problematic behaviours. Others, long-term difficulties that have not yet been resolved. Some want to find alternate ways to cope while others want to discover more about themselves in order to live life more authentically. Whatever your concern, it is a privilege to support your personal therapeutic goals on your own self-development journey. I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and a member of the Psychologists Association of Alberta.

Art Therapy is great for youth & adults who have difficulty expressing themselves verbally. Experience with art making is Not necessary because we use materials in multiple ways. This mode of therapy is effective for those who have experienced trauma, by giving the client an opportunity to heal in a preverbal manner. The therapeutic use of art materials is good for anyone struggling with anxiety or stress. Working with an Art Therapist can untangle thoughts, re-imagine past patterns and create multiple ways to get unstuck. Instead of having to form thoughts through speech, we process through imagery, in a hands on manner.

At times we feel under a lot of intangible stress, and this creates an imbalance that wears out our normal coping skills. You are not alone. Feeling tired of being tired is the first step in reaching out to achieve and master a proper life balance. A life without the limits of our pre-conditioned and other based negative self talk paradigms. Life does involve more than survival and fighting- it involves joy and happiness. I can help you achieve this transformation.

As a counselor I recognize my privilege and am honored to be a part of your journey. Working with me means that I see you as the expert of your lived experiences. At the end of the day we are all unique in our wants, needs, and desires, and what works for some does not mean it will always work for everyone. My aim is to work with you and meet you where you are at so we can figure out what is working, what needs to change, and how we can get there together. After all, this is YOUR journey. Counselling with me is a collaborative process where your voice, opinions, and experiences matter, are important, and are valid.

ADHD Counsellors

When should I seek treatment for ADHD?

You should seek treatment for ADHD if you consistently have difficulty with attention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity that interferes with your daily life. Symptoms of ADHD include the inability to sustain attention during tasks, difficulty organizing tasks and activities, being easily distracted, frequent fidgeting or squirming, and talking or interrupting excessively. If these symptoms interfere with your career, academics, or relationships—for example, consistently failing to complete professional projects on time—you should seek an evaluation for ADHD.

How does treatment for ADHD work?

Effective treatment for ADHD often consists of medication, behavioral therapy, and lifestyle changes. Stimulant medications such as Adderall and Ritalin work by altering levels of neurotransmitters in the brain; higher levels of dopamine and norepinephrine are known to improve attention and focus. Therapy works by helping people with ADHD understand the condition, discuss their areas of difficulty, and develop behavioral strategies to manage their symptoms. In some cases, modifying one’s diet and exercise can also help improve symptoms.

Are there specific medications for ADHD?

Medications to treat ADHD are generally stimulants, the most common are Adderall and Ritalin. There are two categories of stimulants: Amphetamines include Adderall, Dyanavel, Vyvanse, and Dexedrine, and methylphenidates include Ritalin, Concerta, Daytrana, Focalin, Quillichew, Quillivant, and Metadate. Non-stimulants and antidepressants may be used as an alternative if stimulants aren’t effective or viable for a particular patient.

How long does treatment for ADHD take?

It’s tough to give an exact time frame because everyone varies. In terms of medications, stimulants begin to work very soon after you take them, generally within the hour. It may take time to identify the right medication and dosage, but the medication itself is fast-acting. In terms of therapy, it takes time to develop skills and put them into practice, but you will likely see improvements within a few weeks or months.
