My intention is to support the mental wellness and healing of children and youth. As a Registered Trauma Therapist, I have over 7 years of working experience with youth in educational and therapeutic settings. My training includes attachment theory, child development, suicide prevention, trauma research and somatic practice.
In my practice, I work with children and teens affected by anxiety, grief and depression as well as high-risk youth affected by trauma, self-harm and suicide ideation. I use a psychodynamic culturally sensitive approach that is child-led, strengths-based, and trauma-focused. I also incorporate mindfulness based strategies.
Through art, talk, play and somatic practice, my therapy welcomes anyone who is in need of a safe space to express their thoughts and feelings, integrate difficult life experiences, and process internal conflicts. I strive to walk alongside my clients on their paths to healing as we work together to develop coping skills and build upon their strengths consciously.
My practice is rooted in a commitment to social justice, holding space and promoting the health and wellness of QTBIPOC, 2SLGBTQIA, and other marginalized communities. I work collaboratively with you to minimize barriers to counselling, recognizing the ways that different intersections can impact access to health care.
