I work with children, adolescents, and young adults who are coping with difficult behaviours, anxiety or mood concerns. Parents can often feel overwhelmed in helping their children, so I support families to help them manage life stressors and difficult emotions. My goal is to help children, youth, and parents have easier and more pleasant days. I use evidence-based strategies of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Within my work helping youth, young adults, and parents, I have a specialty of helping people coping with medical conditions or anxiety about medical procedures.

Clients often tell me that what has helped them most when talking with me is that they felt heard and understood – not judged. I help people who long to ignite a long-lasting, caring relationship with themselves and others but often find it easier to be critical than compassionate. I support people to embrace compassion for themselves and others, so they can repair relationships and invite joy back into their lives. In our busy world, where everyone asks us to “connect” on social media, it is easy to feel disconnected – from our friends, from family, from colleagues, from our own emotions.

Now you’re feeling rattled because you never expected so much to strike so close to home. Your sensitive child is taking everything to heart and is very upset. It can feel overwhelming to search for words to reassure them. Nothing you try seems to comfort them for very long and you’re not sure if you’re even on the right track.
