About

My practice is dedicated to supporting children ages 5 to 12 years of age who are experiencing difficulties associated with anxiety-related disorders and general anxious thoughts and feelings. I offer evidence-based practice and intervention using effective treatment modalities, such as Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), play therapy, expressive therapy, and mindfulness, to address a number of challenges related to childhood anxiety. I utilize a child-centered approach to build balance and connection through a focus on a child's strengths, problem-solving, coping skills, and play.
Through the use of CBT strategies, children learn to utilize coping skills to manage their specific challenge(s) in a more effective and healthy way, recognize and accept feelings and uncomfortable physical symptoms, and better understand what their thoughts and behaviours might be trying to communicate.
Outside of the counselling realm, I am a mother of two boys and a girl, all of which are beautiful and bright, yet bear three very different personalities. Much of my understanding and passion in my work with children stems from my own experience as a parent during all of the real life challenges and changes parenthood brings.
