Child & Family Counsellor
Strong families and family-like connections are important to individual well-being, safety, and identity. This is why I am passionate about supporting families in their goals to flourish. Families are wonderful parts of our lives- at the same time, they present us with many challenges. This is normal! Supporting you through these challenges in a way that works for you is among my hopes in my practice.
I have a Master of Social Work degree and am a Registered Social Worker (RSW). For over 5 years, I’ve had the privilege of working with young people and caregivers who have mental health, emotional challenges, and substance use concerns holding them back from the life they truly want to live. I work with my clients using strengths-based, person-centered, attachment, and culturally-sensitive family systems theory. I specifically use principles from cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, and somatic therapies, however I am happy to shift styles to fit the needs of my clients and to develop a genuine, trusting, collaborative, and non-judgemental space for growth. I avidly welcome people from all walks of life and identities. I look forward to celebrating the diversity of all people, working together, learning, and journeying with you through the ups and downs!
