I have been working therapeutically with children and families as a Registered Clinical Counsellor since 1990.
I have many years experience as a special education teacher and school counsellor. Currently, I teach at Capilano University in the SEA program. I have taught courses in child development, interpersonal skills and behaviour.
My realm of practice includes helping children and their families with school adjustment issues, divorce, parent/sibling/peer conflict, anxiety and behavioural challenges. I work with individuals experiencing caregiver stress when a family member has a long term disability, cancer, or other chronic illness. Assisting young adults with their transition to post-secondary institutions and the world of work is also part of my practice.
My therapeutic methods encompass cognitive-behavioural therapy and play/art modalities with a person-centred focus. I also bring extensive training and experience in the area of special needs to my practice.
I am committed to entering into a collaborative, therapeutic relationship with clients that enhances healing and growth.
