“When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we get to write a brave new ending.” – Brene Brown

 

By creating a safe environment and using compassion, curiosity, and a little bit of trust in the process we can work together to explore and integrate new ways of looking at and engaging with the world. Sometimes that means just having someone to sit with during the messy times in life. We all hold unique experiences that deserve to be honored and all deserve a life that is fulfilling and meaningful as determined by you. 

I completed my Bachelor’s of science degree at the University of Alberta and completed my Master’s in counselling at City University of Seattle. I am also a certified brain Injury Specialist through the Academy of Certified Brain Injury Specialist.

I primarily work from a client centered perspective. I believe that we all have within ourselves the ability to heal and flourish with the right environment and guidance. I integrate different therapies to suit the specific needs and preferences of each person I work with. I have a special interest in both attachment theory and acceptance and commitment therapy.

I have had the privilege of previously working with many people including children, teens, adults, families, within schools, private practice, and community settings. I have worked children and families with autism disorder, children with trauma and attachment difficulties, and individuals with acquired brain injury. I look forward to being a part of the Westgrove Clinic team.

When I'm not working, I love spending time with family, my dog, painting, and being outside. Growing up I spent much of my time at a small family cabin in Alberta and I enjoy returning any chance she can get.

I believe that relationships both play a part in our worldview and in healing and that in the face of difficult circumstances, thoughts, and feelings we can still live a meaningful, value-driven life.
