As a registered clinical counsellor, I understand the challenges that families and children face during times of transition and change. My aim is to provide you with a supportive and safe space, where you feel heard.
I specialize in the areas of family conflict and high conflict separation/divorce. I have worked in child protective services and mental health for over 20 years. I often work with resistant clients who are involved in high conflict and emotionally charged situations. I have assisted individuals and families who are struggling with parenting issues, communication skills, substance abuse, domestic violence, child welfare matters, and family conflict.
I have my undergraduate degree in Child and Youth Care and my Masters degree in Counselling Psychology. I have extensive experience and training in interviewing children and assessing their social/emotional needs. I have been called to court on many occasions to present my observations and findings.
Working with families who are involved in the court process and who are dealing with custody and access issues is the primary focus of my practice. I have received additional training, focusing on Custody and Access Reports. I believe that we need to support opportunities for children to share their views and be heard when their best interests are being determined. Everyone deserves to be heard.
There are many issues, concerns, and logistics to work out when a separation or divorce has occurred. We will work together to figure this out and find practical and child centered solutions that work for your family.
