I've been working with children and youth since 2012 and started my counselling career with the Near North District School Board in the West Parry Sound District. I transitioned to working at New Path Youth and Family Services in Barrie in 2013 as a Counsellor. This position enabled me to work with youth and their families to support them through relationship challenges and other barriers. Since moving to Barrie, I've worked with many parents and individual adults in my previous and enjoy the variety of ages and stages of clients I've been honoured to work with. I've worked with children, youth, and individual adults to help them overcome challenges related to anxiety, depression, self-esteem, communication, stress management, organization and planning, learning disabilities, mood dis-regulation, sibling conflict, and phobias for example. If you have questions for me about your needs and would like to know if I am able to help you or your family, please email or give me a call. If we decide that your needs are better suited to another therapist, I will gladly refer you to one of my colleagues.
