Work Experience

My career has spanned 3 provinces and over 20 years.  Most of my work experience has focused on counselling adults, children, and families who face significant challenges related to Mental health/wellness. My extensive frontline experience has provided me with in-depth knowledge in the following areas:  

  • Mental Health/Wellness
  • Trauma
  • Parenting
  • Adoption/Foster Care
  • Life Transitions
  • Military Lifestyle
  • Divorce/Separation
  • Self-harm/Suicide
  • Attachment
  • Acculturation
  • Anxiety
  • Addictions/compulsions
  • Blended-Families
  • Child Development
  • Gender/Sexuality
  • Grief and Loss

Work, education, and life experience have all provided me with an unshakeable passion for individualized healing plans.  I strongly encourage an integrated approach towards counselling and include harm reduction and health promotion perspectives when at all possible.
