About

I bring 14 years experience as a Registered Social Worker offering clinical services to children, youth, adults and their families. I have developed my skills working in schools, treatment facilities, youth justice, and community counselling programs. I have a particular passion serving families with children who are experiencing social, emotional and behavioural or legal challenges. My services include, individual behavioural and family counselling as well as parent coaching. In private practice, I have worked with a wide range of adults who are experiencing difficulties with their mood, and self regulation.
I practice from a non-judgmental, anti-oppressive based framework, using client centered therapy; meaning one size does not fit all. I am flexible and work collaboratively to meet each clients unique needs, so that they know that they are heard. I offer services drawing on methods of CBT, DBT, Mindfulness and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.
I am hear to offer you a safe space to share explore and help you enhance the quality of your life. Treatment Specialties: anxiety and depression; mood disorders; trauma; bereavement and loss; crisis and stress management; life transitions; identity exploration; relationship challenges/conflicts, personal growth.
