Life can certainly feel uncertain at times. Are you undergoing some changes or challenges and looking for support? Do you, or your loved ones struggle with depression, anxiety or social conflicts? I work with children, youth and families who seek help with conflict resolution, emotional balance and improvement in self expression. In a collaborative and encouraging way, clients and I strive to reconnect with strengths, resources and new concepts. With support, you can gain a renewed sense of hope, empowerment, and strength while managing life changes and challenges.

I have extensive training in educational and psycho-educational assessments and individualized program planning. My career as a teacher of children and adults, in South Korea, Vancouver and Calgary, has helped me to understand, appreciate and connect with individuals of varying ages, abilities, cultural backgrounds, and sexual orientations.

If appropriate and interesting to you, I can draw from cognitive behavioural, solution focused and systemic approaches. Play, art and mindfulness strategies are also effective and efficient in helping individuals restore health, reach their full potential and rediscover passion in their daily life. Telephone or video counselling is possible. Catalyst Counselling Services Inc.
