Clinical services or therapy include working with individuals, couples & families, military members & law enforcement re: PTSD, depression, anxiety, etc.
Just like adults, children also experience a full range of human emotions such as anxiety or depression & are equally impacted by their environment, such as divorce, parental conflict, abuse or school issues. Unlike adults, children express their feelings using behaviour instead of words, for example acting out, defiance, inability to control anger, depression, self-harm, etc. Regardless of age, children want and need to be heard. I accomplish this using age-appropriate approaches such as art, play, sandbox and talk therapy to explore what is causing them distress and to create well-being.

My practice specializes in working with people who have suffered trauma, and PTSD, including Military Members, Veterans and First Responders and victims of abuse as well as Couples looking to mend or deepen their relationship using an Emotionally Focused approach.
I have been working in Social services for over 30 years; over 20 in private practice. I enjoy using the eclectic combinations of modalities that I have learned. In general I find that as humans, our minds cause us a great deal of suffering. Learning to understand our minds so that we can change the negative scripts that keep us stuck in the same patterns is the greatest gift I have to offer. It is only then that we can experience our full potential of happiness and fulfillment in life. I use a client-centred approach. My practice welcomes the diversity of all humans.

I provide a safe, non-judgmental and empathic environment for adults experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, interpersonal conflict, chronic illness, workplace stress, caregiver stress, and issues with self-esteem.
