I was 11 when I decided to wanted to be a therapist. I was always the person who people naturally approached when they craved a supportive, listening ear. Now, I continue to enjoy creating a comfortable atmosphere where we can now dig in and explore whatever is most important to you. Together we can work on big stuff, the small stuff, and everything in-between. I believe that healing starts by putting you in the driver’s seat, gaining an appreciation for your current experience, and empowering you to take control of your own story and create meaning. To facilitate this, I custom tailor my therapy approach to your unique needs and worldview. I will check in with you regularly so I can gage what is and isn’t working, so we stay focused and on track. Together, we will explore whatever you are interested in shifting, and I am confident that we can create positive changes ripple that will throughout your whole life.
So far, I have worked primarily with kids and teens, although I also work with adults in private practice. I am a strong believer in group work and finding solace in others who have shared experiences. I have run groups focusing on girls’ empowerment, identity exploration, social skills, and supporting kids through their parents’ divorce. I have experience facilitating support groups for kids whose families have been impacted by domestic violence. I am passionate about listening to their stories and experiences, supporting kids in learning to navigate upcoming changes, and teaching skills to cope with complex emotions. I also enjoyed a position as a school counsellor, earlier in my career.
In my free time, I seek adventure and get my own dose of nature therapy as a Girl Guide Leader. I am also the mother of a spirited young girl and enjoy all the moments I can with my family. I live a life full of dancing, baking, and jump on any opportunity to create joy and passion.
