About

Now located in Bridgeland! When it comes to working with children, youth, and young adults, the most common story I hear is that they do not feel seen, understood, or supported. Many young people I work with state that they feel trapped within their own body and mind. Without feeling safe, they are stuck in a continuous loop of fight or flight responses which can lead to meltdowns, school avoidance, and risk taking behaviours. Understanding that they are doing the best they can, I aim to help young people find safety and connection so that they can thrive within systems that do not always support living outside the “standard box.”
With my advanced PhD training, I specialize in working with young people (6-25) and their caregivers. I always tailor my interventions (ACT, DBT, ERP) to meet my client’s interests. We may engage in drawing and imaginative play; listening to music; taking pictures and making movies; finding our inner superhero; or facing fears in a safe and inclusive space.
I believe that when young people feel seen and heard, anything is possible! Given my training, I specialize in working with clients who are looking for support in navigating OCD, anxiety, neurodiversity, trauma, and gender and sexuality. Please call me for a free 15 minute consultation to see if we are a good match!
