I believe in the power of a strong therapeutic relationship. Through building a solid rapport, my goal is to assist in the achievement of increased self-awareness and positive change. I strive to offer a collaborative, non-judgmental, and trusting environment where difficult emotions can be explored. Every individual is unique and I believe in empowering people to discover the solutions that work best for them. I have spent significant time traveling and volunteering overseas and recognize the importance of demonstrating cultural sensitivity within my counselling practice.
I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and a member of the Psychologists Association of Alberta. I have both training and experience working with children and adolescents. I have utilized art, play, and sand tray therapy with children and adolescents. I have also co-facilitated workshops for parents and have counselled parents and caregivers on developing and maintaining healthy child-parent relationships.
In addition to working with children, adolescents, and parents, I have many years of experience working with adults dealing with acute and chronic pain. I have specific knowledge and experience in pain and sleep management, and relaxation training.
