I work with children and youth between 2 and 16 years old and their families to improve their quality of life and to empower them to grow in authentic and meaningful ways. Children sometimes cannot bring themselves to talk about particular issues, and my therapy can help them discover ways to express, form meaningful connections, and find their inner resources and strength. I support parents to explore their unique strengths and gently walk them through the hard stuff together. Whether you need an empathetic holding place or concrete skill based solutions for your family needs, it would be my honour and pleasure to help you.

I have specialized expertise in supporting children with developmental and neurological differences. This also includes children with non-verbal autism or intellectual disability. Although talking or conversation may be a part of this experience, no verbal response is required from the child.

Each session is a child-lead and collaborative process with following and subtle guiding. We may talk, play or explore colour or sounds. The therapy process looks different for each person as I respond to the unique needs of that individual, on that day, in that moment.
