I work with individuals, couples and families who are struggling with everyday coping, relational issues, parenting concerns, psychological wellness and relationship/famil functioning. I specialize in depression, anxiety, grief & loss, infertility, existential questioning, couple and marital relationship issues, parenting concerns & strategies, and systemic therapeutic approaches. I work with people to move towards change-oriented solutions by reducing distress, improving coping and mental health skills & understanding relational patterns. I offer a safe, culturally-sensitive space for neurodivergence, LGBTQIA+ & BIPOC communities.
I am a systemic therapist assisting individuals (adults, children & adolescents), couples, and families to understand lived experiences by opening relational space and realizing preferred ways of living. I am registered in both Alberta & BC as a social worker and nationally as a family therapist, thus I can work with clients in various geographical locations
Reach out to me if you have questions about your place in the world, navigating roles and identities in your relationships, parenting, coping, developing wellness skills and understanding your relationships and relational patterns. I am practice systemic therapy that is open to examining all experiences, including relational function and existentialism.
