I believe in connection
Trauma - Informed
I love my work
I believe in a family-centered and community based approach as a core value in both my personal and professional life.
All people fundamentally deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
I consider each person to be the expert in his or her own life and that healing is an experience unique to the individual, viewing myself as a collaborative team member.
I believe in the profound ability of the human spirit to overcome suffering and challenges, and that this ability is deeply rooted in our relationship to and connection with the natural world around us.

- To find solutions in challenging times
- To meet individual goals
All sessions are private and confidential, according to the Code of Ethics as laid out by the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
Nature-Based Therapy Sessions
The natural environment is mindful and self-reflective space, that allows us to connect deeply with ourselves. Sessions can be still or movement oriented, incorporating the ability of nature to positively impact our inner world.
Adopt the pace of nature: Her secret is patience. -Emerson
