Trust and building relationships are two of the biggest foundations of my practice in working with others. I work hard to create an open and safe environment where clients can feel supported to work through their difficulties and challenges. It is important to me that clients feel they can be open and honest as they share the obstacles they face. I believe it takes courage to reach out for support and consider it an honour and a privilege to work collaboratively with my clients to reach their goals.
I grew up in Manitoba and have called Calgary home since 2012. I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Calgary and have worked with children, adolescents, adults, parents and families throughout my 12 years of counselling experience.
My areas of specialization include trauma-based difficulties, child and adolescent behavioral challenges, parenting and family-based conflict, and addiction.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Collaborative Problem Solving, Attachment and Strength-based approaches, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Solution Focused Therapy.
