When you’re ready to embrace change I welcome you to contact me to discuss how we can work together to support you to live your best life.
Throughout my professional career I can truly say I have worked with people from all walks of life! My experience includes working for community agencies as well as private mental health providers. Specific populations I serve include individuals with a developmental disability and their families. As a parent and previous foster parent, I welcome young people and others with a connection to the foster care system. For many years I provided counselling and education in the area of social-sexual skills development. I welcome referrals from individuals who may require this specific support.
I offer counselling for individuals seeking support with trauma, life transitions, change and loss, anxiety, parenting and disability. As a knowledgeable system’s advocate, I can support you to understand and navigate any barriers that may be preventing you from accessing the resources you need.
My approach is integrative and that means I combine different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit your individual needs. I have training and experience in the following modalities including Mindfulness, Life Coaching, Cognitive & Dialectic Behavior Therapy, trauma informed therapies and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I am currently studying Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing and have recently completed Phase 1 training. At present, I am offering this exciting and effective approach for individuals affected by intrusive memories and single incident trauma.
Regardless of the modality, promoting personal growth and change in a timely manner is important to me as a counsellor. You set the course for our work together whether that be single session counselling, booster sessions along the way or a longer-term approach. I believe the pace of one’s counselling is as unique as each individual.
I have been described by my clients as compassionate, motivating, flexible and creative, a strong advocate and forward thinking. Clients also report that my solutions focused approach to living life has had lasting benefits.
Take the time to discover your own path. The smallest decisions can change your life forever.
