I offer high quality clinical services to individuals, couples, and groups. I am also able to combine expressive art therapies with clinical services. I look forward to working with you, your family, or group to create a relationship that will support your growth.
We will work together one-to-one to heal, resolve, and make sense of what has been troubling you. We all have stress, grief, pain, and situations to work out. I used a combination of evidence-based practices, such as: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Problem Solving, and expressive art therapy techniques. For some, the expressive methods (creating art, listening to or making music, or writing) may better help your growth. I am a trauma informed practitioner. I look forward to being with you on your unique journey.
Relationship Counselling (Couple & Family)
Our connection to others is a vital part of our health and our happiness. Relationships can be complicated and often couples and families have issues they need to work out with the help of a counsellor. We will work together to improve communication, understanding, and support in your family. I utilize Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Attachment and Family Systems Therapy. I work with diverse constellations of couples and families and I am an ally for LGBTQ2S+ people.
Expressive Arts Therapy
Utilizing expressive arts in therapy can facilitate: stress relief, reduce anxiety, help process difficult emotions and solve problems, heal from grief and loss, and integrate trauma into a meaningful narrative of resilience. Often people have difficulty expressing intense emotions or difficult experiences. Expressive arts (visual art, drawing, music, dance, play, drama, writing, poetry) can help you express that which is hard to discuss or verbalize. You do NOT need to be an artist to benefit from this type of therapy. An open mind and willingness to explore are helpful here.
Clinical Supervision & Clinician Consultation
Clinical supervision is vital for you to assist your clients and keep yourself well. Together, we will work to identify the support you need in supervision. I have experience supervising clinicians, counsellors, social work students, and multi-disciplinary teams. I provide practical and professional support to experienced professionals and those just entering the field, particularly in the areas of mental health (children/youth/adults), family support/family therapy, healthcare, and systemic social work.
Additionally, I offer consultation upon request to organizations or systems, and case consultations. I have expertise in mental health, prevention and early intervention, community programming, and medical social work.
Workshop Facilitation & Speaking Engagements
I really enjoy facilitating others’ learning and growth, through workshops and through educational and inspirational speaking engagements. I look to infuse practical tools, research-based knowledge, wisdom from lived experiences, and humour. Please contact me directly to discuss the needs of your group and schedule. I will be offering Expressive Arts Workshops via the Zoom platform.
