“The most beautiful people that we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, and known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” —Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Throughout my 7 years supporting families I have had the honour to walk alongside children, youth, and their caregivers as they navigate through their struggles. Using creative therapy techniques I am able to understand your child’s world view, support them in processing their current concerns, and offer insight and recommendations for the family as a whole with the goal of increasing your family’s unity and well-being.
As a Registered Provisional Psychologist, my approach with families is informed by person-centered, developmental, family systems, and trauma informed theories. I work with individuals and families 3 years old and up. My role is to assist your family through your current struggles by offering support, insight, and consultation. I have considerable experience working with children, youth and their families in areas of anxiety, depression, ADHD, anger, self-harm, disordered eating, separation/divorce, attachment, adoption, complex trauma (physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect), and singular traumatic events (car accidents, assault).
I have advanced training in Play therapy, Sandplay therapy, Art therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). I have worked with Children Services, foster parents, and adoptive parents. I offer direct billing through Blue Cross.
