** I am currently exclusively providing clients with both Video-Conferencing Sessions and Telephone Sessions **
I am described as caring, compassionate and client-centered. I provide a supportive environment while helping clients move towards making positive life changes. I provide specialized child, adolescent and adult counselling in areas such as: trauma, anxiety, self-esteem, body image, eating issues, sleeping difficulties, school/work adjustment, add/adhd, stress, depression, problems in school/work, friendship struggles, bullying, anger, child-parent struggles, family issues, separation and divorce reactions, grief/loss, and complex emotions. My approach begins with being an active listener, building trusting relationships and helping clients to be their own change agents.
I believe in meeting clients where they are in their lives, treating them with the utmost respect and working together to help improve their lives. In terms of working with children, I begin with a “play-based” approach in order to help them feel comfortable and at ease in counselling. Given that parenting is complex, my work includes parental coaching and parent/child communication. I have over twenty years of experience in working with children, teens and adults.
