About

I provide one-to-one counselling for youth and for adults, couples counselling and parenting education/supports. I also offer a wide variety of Professional Development Trainings (CEC approved) for agencies/staff (like Mental Health First Response Training; True Colours; Anxiety/Depression; Communication; Sleep Hygiene; Work/Life Balance; etc); and community based workshops and Therapy Support Groups for the public. My passion is to empower people as they face challenges and grow as individuals - as they address the issues in their lives that might be holding them back from the happiness and contentment they wish to experience.
My areas of speciality include the provision of effective management strategies for people coping with Anxiety and Depression, Self Harm, and Sleep Hygiene issues. I offer specialized supports for First Responders, for Teens, and for Aboriginal clients. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental counselling environment.
I have been in the counselling field for over 30 years, working with street gangs in Toronto, with isolated youth in remote northern Canada, and with youth/adults throughout Alberta. I believe in encouraging and empowering individuals to be agents of change in their own lives, as well as in the world around them.
