Counselling

symbolCounselling

counsellingI am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and work in the school system as well as in private practice.  I find my work dynamic, satisfying and life affirming-I love what I do!

I provide support to children, youth and families through assessment, counselling, consultation, and mediation.  My approach is cognitive-behavioural, solution focused, and based on developing resilience and strengths.  When working with young children I often use play, art or narrative approaches, and with youth I utilize more existential approaches, to help with meaning of life and identity issues. Where possible, I involve parents closely in the therapeutic process so that they can act as emotional coaches for their children.

I assist parents in responding to the challenges of parenting and developing stronger, healthier relationships with their children.
