Description

My work is centered on helping people figure out ‘life’ - managing relationships with others and self, dealing with big emotions, working through trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, all while honoring and caring for a person’s whole self.

I’ve been a registered Social Worker for the last 28 years and through my career I’ve supported children, adolescents and adults, both individually and as a family. Although the work is not easy – honest dialogue, safe environment, commitment to showing up – it is the key to growth, learning and making impactful change.

I look forward to meeting you.
