My areas of special interest include anxiety and depression, trauma, abuse (physical, emotional, psychological, sexual), stress, grief, bereavement and loss, managing chronic illness, and relationships.
I have experience supporting people with a wide range of difficulties. In particular I have enjoyed working with clients who are looking for support in understanding themselves better within the context of their current relationships, their families of origin and their belief systems. I find it very meaningful working with people recovering from traumatic brain injuries and chronic illnesses, as well as those bereaved and grieving the loss of a loved one. I combine techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Psychodynamic Theory to support my clients every step of the way. It is my privilege to connect with adolescents and adults and accompany them on their journey towards growth and change.
I have enjoyed presenting on various topics such as trauma and stress in local community organizations and church groups. Please contact me if you are interested in addressing a mental health topic in your workplace, organization, or church gathering.
In my spare time I enjoy creating art of all kinds (painting, drawing, and other projects), playing music, staying active and spending time with my husband and our dog Pax.
I look forward to connecting with you!
