Announcement icon Covid19 brought change to my practice. I move to the Comox Valley to begin building Ships Point Wellness INC, which is under construction.

About

I have been supporting children & youth, and their families for the past 17 years in public education. I facilitate workshops and also do group counselling. I have a strong background in special education, which means I often observe the behaviour(s) of children and youth, collaborate with them and their families, and implement/teach tools for alleviating a child's stress. I have experience as a clinician for Adult Mental Health & Addictions in both inpatient and outpatient care from the hospital. This has benefited early recognition and prevention.
I support children and youth around a variety of topics from dealing with divorce, loss, absence of a parent to providing tools for anxiety, etc. I have been and continue to be a source of support for LGBTQ youth, while also supporting their parents during periods of identity changes or transitions.
I have expanded my practice with covid19. Ships Point Wellness INC is under construction and a mobile service is available from Nanaimo to Campbell River to support parents with their child at home, support transportation struggles AND provide immediate service for children & youth with suicidal ideation. Pls call for a consult.
