I hold a Master’s degree in Social Work and is registered with the Alberta College of Social Workers. I specialize in individual/couples and family counselling, a Certified Meditation Instructor, and holds certification in Adult Education.
My main practice is working with couples, co-parenting, blended families, parenting issues, stress/anxiety and healing from trauma.
I prefer to get to root causes of situations, this means couples and individuals can expect sessions to move quickly without the need for lengthy therapy. Depending on the situation, some clients only require 3-4 sessions.
One of my favourite quotes is by Dr. Gabor Mate; "Get curious about your reactions". I like this because when we are uncomfortable, there is a teacher in the room. We tend to avoid those uncomfortable feelings, I propose we get more curious about them and I can show you how.
