When young people and their families experience trauma and/or life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to fall apart. It has been my great passion to be their advocate, their voice, all whilst helping them heal. I have helped my clients, primarily children and youth, find a healthy perception of themselves, so they can reconcile and get to know themselves as peaceful, whole and safe.
As a Family Counsellor with the CRPCN, I offer short-term counselling, consultation, clinical clarification, specialized referrals and support for young people (ages 7-17), who are experiencing mental health difficulties. I provide an initial assessment with 5-6 counselling sessions targeted at providing the skills necessary to manage. I also provide parenting support and education, using a holistic approach.
I have been trained in various therapeutic modalities and interventions, noting there is no single approach right for every one person. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Brief Solution-Focused Therapy.
Referrals come from the family doctors who are part of the CRPCN practice in Okotoks & Black Diamond.
