I am a theraputic counsellor and parenting consultant working to support clients as they integrate mind, body, spirit, and emotions in the healing process. I commit to compassionately help individuals in recognizing and following their body-centered intuition towards healing and living a full life.
Beginning the walk down the path of self-reflection is scary – that is why I am here; to walk beside you. Together, let’s examine your beliefs about who you are and who you want to become.
“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” -Victor Frankl
The intention of counselling is to inspire individuals to come into conscious connection with their body, mind, and soul. This connection offers the opportunity to create a culture of health, both individually and within the relational unit.
My practice uses an integrative, developmentally-informed, and family-centered approach, with a focus on children and families. I compassionately and skillfully support families as we address connection through counselling, workshops, and support groups.
I provide insight and direction for addressing the family system and individual needs.
Recognizing the variety of forms of modern stepfamilies and their different treatment needs
Understanding the stepfamily cycle, offers clients an organized way to identify challenges and find ways through them.
My goal is to support youth by coming alongside them and offering insight into the core of the challenges life is presenting. Together we will identify strategies that can help identify, understand and work with symptoms and behavior. Offering in-person and online counselling.
Awareness – Using the attachment-based developmental approach we will identify the underlying emotions that drive behavior and how as the adults we can support.
Acknowledge – Together we will explore the blocks that arise as you work towards becoming your childs answer. We must be able to self regulate before we can co-regulate. This skill is fostered through inner reflection, self-care, and attention to our own needs.
Action – Together we will develop a plan of action that explores the root of the problem while compassionately addressing troubling behaviors. We are our child’s answer.
