About

I am passionate about working with children and their families. In accessing over 30 years of experience in therapeutic, school-based, and athletic settings, I seek to create a safe, non-judgmental, and non-intrusive experience for children. I provide counselling and play therapy to help children develop self-awareness, emotional language, and the regulation skills needed to reduce and manage symptoms related to anxiety, stress, worry, school avoidance, peer relationships, grief and loss, life changes, and learning difficulties.
Parents also know their child best, so I strive to work closely with parents to create meaningful and collaborative goals. I am also able to provide additional information and resources for parents when they are feeling lost and are struggling to support their child.
I offer a trauma-informed, collaborative, and child-centred approach that allows children to find their inner strength and develop the confidence they need to reach their goals. My primary therapeutic approach is Synergetic Play Therapy (SPT). I also use mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), EMDR, and solution focused therapies in my practice..
