Fresh perspectives on empowerment and support encourage the growth required to overcome difficult obstacles in life. Using a blend of treatment options that are uniquely tailored and implemented in a collaborative manner, can brighten the light of situations that often feel dark when we go at them alone. Using evidence-based techniques, I blend multiple forms of therapy to meet the needs of each individual with whom I meet. Mindfulness-based CBT, and psychoeducation are some commonly used interventions to address mental health concerns.
I have been working with individuals, children, youth, and families for 15 years to support growth and foster a desire for change. I am licensed through the Manitoba College of Social Workers and have a Masters degree in Social Work with an undergrad in psychology.
