About

"I specialize in grief, loss, and trauma because I find many issues such as substance abuse, anger, stress, and even violence stem from long standing, unresolved grief and loss, and trauma that was never acknowledged or processed. I use a wide variety of approaches depending on the issues and how you wish to resolve them. I also work on issues related to self-esteem and empowerment, so you can help yourself heal. I offer you a guiding hand through these times of pain and confusion. Let's walk together on this journey and perhaps we can find meaning together."
"I have travelled to 14 different First Nation communities in six Nations in Northwest BC to assist members in dealing with trauma and grief and loss. Because of my experience and knowledge of the impact of historical and generational trauma, I use a cultural perspective and a holistic approach."
"I have a therapeutic playroom for my younger clients. I help children creatively express themselves (certificate in Expressive Play Therapy) and help them find answers to their questions. I provide support for parents to help them deal with their children's problematic behaviours, including working through difficult developmental stages. "
