I am committed to a life of learning about myself and others. I believe we are all on a journey toward whatever it is that brings peace and joy into our daily lives. As a Counselling Therapist, my job is to help you discover what it is you need. Together, we can uncover the tools, strategies and resources that will assist in increasing your sense of well being!
The theme of care is woven throughout my career history. I have spent several years working with youth with emotional and behaviour difficulties. I have extensive experience working with children and youth with special needs and/or learning disabilities and their families. As well, I have worked in a number of care facilities for adults with intellectual differences and mental health diagnoses.
