I have completed my master’s degree in counselling psychology with additional studies in Systemic Family Therapy. I have a wide range of experience providing therapeutic support to children, adults, couples, and families. This work includes a decade of contributions promoting positive mental health in the public school system, as well as internships with Carya Family Counselling and the Calgary Family Therapy Centre.
I believe that healing happens in relationship; I have helped individuals, couples and families develop greater insight into their emotions, patterns of interaction and collaboratively solve problems leading to enhanced ease, joy and connection.
I am an integrative therapist, weaving Narrative, Family-Systems, Solution-focused and Attachment-based theories and modalities into my work. I am a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction facilitator and incorporate the power of present-moment awareness and somatic wisdom into my practice. I’ve been described as calm, compassionate, a skilled listener, genuine, present, and supportive. I work in collaboration with clients to co-construct goals and solutions that create positive change.
I take care of my mental well-being by moving my body in the outdoors, appreciating beauty, connecting with loved ones, practicing meditation and continually learning.
I believe it is a privilege to support folks in deepening their connection with themselves and the ones they care about most. I look forward to supporting you in creating meaningful shifts in your relationships and well-being.
You belong here. ♡
