About

Doctoral degree in Counselling Studies and Certified Child and Youth Counsellor. Support working with children, marriages & families from all stages. I have been in practice for over 33 years. The focus includes: building safety, healthy attachment and attunement, healing from trauma by using NUROFEEDBACK, EMDR and BRAINSPOTTING, decreasing anxiety, depression and OCD, family and marital issues and building self-confidence, emotional regulation, living mindfully with purpose, spirituality, supporting goals and aspirations, living in relational harmony and investing in fulfilling relationships and life goals.
Support child/youth/adults/families to explore their beliefs that contribute to their thoughts, emotions and behaviors. Together we will develop skills and knowledge that contribute to healthy brain, relationships and meeting your goals. Specialize in trauma creativity and effective problem solving and mindfulness meditations. I offer mindfulness groups.
Greatest teachers have been the children/adults that have the courage to share their stories with me. Building safe relationship, healing attachments and trauma we can develop self awareness, create adaptive thinking, embrace our emotions and walk in the direction of your goals and passions. Heal and invest in yourself and the relationships that matter.
