a bit more about

My story

After working in agency-based social work settings (school board, hospital crisis program) for over 16 years, I was searching for a more creative approach to helping others.

 

Baking, creating art, and being in nature were personal ways I find balance and better mood. In 2020, I was happily surprised to discover evidence-based intervention strategies to integrate these activities with psychotherapy work. Being able to create change with clients, while practicing and using creative activities, is a dream come true.

 

My goal is to provide an approachable, practical and down-to-earth environment for clients to begin making change in their lives.  That is why we strive to make our studio & office feel more like a warm, welcoming coffee shop, versus a sterile feeling clinic.

 

I take pride in helping clients use creative pathways to feel more calm- with unique approaches that allow clients to practice in session, then hopefully integrate into their lives outside of sessions- (that's where the baking and nature walks come in!).

 

My hope is that our work together allows clients to feel worthy, more confident, and self-fulfilled, to build better emotion regulation skills, heal past harm, and create more connected relationships with others.

I believe people are the expert of their own lives, value all people regardless of income, age, race, culture, religion, orientation or beliefs- and that my job is simply to bring my experience and training to the table in a real, authentic way.  I am honoured to join clients on their journey to making change in their lives.

a bit more about

My story

For over 20 years, I have had the pleasure of supporting children, youth and their families in a variety of settings; through the school board, through coordinating Ministry funded resources for an agency, as well as supporting individuals in a hospital crisis program.

 

After years of dealing with the goals and demands of government institutions along with its policies and bureaucracies, I am excited to move away from these institutions and support you in the way you wish! 

I am known to provide a safe, judgment-free, empathetic environment for those wishing to connect for help. I want you to feel safe and comfortable with me and know that nothing you share will be too much.

 

I believe you are the expert in your own life and I would be honoured to help empower and support you as you make life changing decisions or just lend a supportive, listening ear.
