I believe that each one of us is the sum of all the journeys we have taken and all the people we have met along the way. We navigate peaks and valleys, traveling up or downstream. At different junctures in our lives, we find ourselves in an ‘in-between’ not knowing which path to take. It is through my own journey and the ones I have taken with others that I have come to bear witness to the strength, courage, and wisdom we each have within us. In my work with individuals, couples, children and youth, I explore challenges, crisis, loss and struggle within the context of one’s interpersonal relationships.

I strive to create a safe space for clients (children, teens, adults, families) to express themselves and share their stories.
It's hard when you feel like you don't understand what is wrong with your loved one, and all you want to do is help. Perhaps more often than not, you struggle and/or feel frustrated and can't communicate without you and/or the other person becoming upset, and it feels hopeless trying to figure out how to fix the problem. During such difficult times, know that you're not alone, that your feelings are valid, and there is hope for things to change for the better.

Imagine understanding why your child is behaving the way they are and having a plan to help them get better.
You're noticing changes in your child's behaviour; it doesn't make sense. They're acting strange, out of their character. Why does my child seem afraid; anxious? It seems like you've tried everything to help them feel better, but nothing seems to work and you're confused, fighting the feeling of helplessness. You find yourself walking on eggshells for fear of making the behaviour worse, because you don't understand what's happening.
