About

My ambition will always be to support the mental wellness and healing of children and adolescents. I am Registered Psychotherapist and Art Therapist with over 10 years of working experience with youth in educational, clinical and hospital settings. My training has involved attachment theory, child development, trauma research, CBT, DBT and suicide prevention.
In my practice, I work with children and teens affected by anxiety, grief and depression as well as high-risk youth affected by trauma, self-harm and suicide ideation. I use a psychodynamic culturally sensitive approach that is child-led, strengths-based, and trauma-focused. I also incorporate mindfulness based strategies.
Through art, talk, and play, my therapy practice welcomes anyone who is in need of a safe space to express their thoughts and feelings, integrate difficult life experiences, and process internal conflicts. I strive to walk alongside my clients on their paths to healing as we work together to develop coping skills and build upon their strengths.
