About

I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor practicing in St. Albert, Alberta. I work primarily with children and teens. I have 30+ years of experience working with children in school based and athletic settings. Experiencing challenges as a child is often scary and overwhelming. I support children in developing the understanding, language, and skills they need to overcome challenges with school, sport, peers, and relationships. I believe that all children have the ability to become resilient and often simply need some understanding and a few skills to help them rediscover the joys of being a child.
I have worked with children as a coach, teacher, and school counsellor. I specialize in supporting those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, symptoms related to trauma, learning challenges, anger and aggression, and grief. I also have experience working with national-level athletes.
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..
