M.C., Provisional R.Psych. (AB)
I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist who is passionate about helping children, youth, and young adults with emotional, academic, and behavioural difficulties. I have been working in private practice for the past 8 years and am in good standing with the College of Alberta Psychologists. I have extensive experience working with a wide variety of childhood disorders and presenting issues both in the school system as well as in private practice. These disorders and presenting issues include anxiety, depression, oppositional defiance, ADHD, autism, sensory processing, self-harm, suicidal ideations, anger management, divorce and separation, intellectual and developmental disorders, learning disabilities, family conflict, grief and loss, parenting support, peer relationships, self-esteem, stress, relationship issues, and trauma.
I know reaching out and coming to counselling can be challenging which is why I always ensure my clients feel safe, comfortable, and relaxed with me. I work from a client-centred approach where I work collaboratively with my clients to help them gain a better understanding and awareness in their lives. I also believe that for change to occur there must be a genuine, non-judgmental relationship between the client and the therapist. I tailor therapy to each individual client where I draw upon a number of different therapy modalities including attachment-based therapy, play therapy, art and sand tray therapy, theraplay, mindfulness, family systems, CBT, solution focused therapy, narrative therapy, and person-centred therapy. I look forward to walking this journey with you!
Helping resolve challenging life experiences and give space for healing.
