CPCA # 3976, ACTA# 1539
Welcome to Matters of Heart and Mind. It is true that you can not go back and change the beginning of your story but at this moment you can start right now and change the ending. I am a counselling therapist who is genuine, straight forward and shares her feelings honestly. I am empathetic and non-judgmental. It is important to me to create a counselling relationship based on feelings of understanding, trust, and confidence. I encourage my clients to explore all their choices and make their own decisions. I am congruent and present a true and accessible self that clients can see as honest and transparent. I look forward to the opportunity to support and help you navigate through the different stories of your life. It is my hope that with 16 years of experience as a counselling therapist, I will create with you a foundation on which you are successful in reaching your goals and dreams.
I am a registered professional counsellor with the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association and a Counselling Therapist with the Association of Counselling Therapy of Alberta.

Welcome to Matters of Heart and Mind. I would be honored to be alongside you as you journey towards well-being.
I believe that for awareness, reflection, understanding and growth to occur there must be a genuine, non-judgmental relationship between the client and the counsellor. Clients are experts at their own lives and I strive to promote self-efficacy; supporting clients as they draw upon their own internal resources, developing healthy coping skills to deal with whatever life challenges. I tend to practice in the here-and-now, focusing on what is within the client's control, while supporting their change process. Modalities I use are: CBT, DBT, Solution-Focused, Mindfulness, Somatic and Polyvagal Theory based interventions.
I am a Registered Professional Counsellor with the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association and a Counselling Therapist with the Association of Counselling Therapy of Alberta. I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and a Certified Family Trauma Professional. I am trained in Triple-P Parenting, Circle of Security and Skills Training for Struggling Kids. I have over 15 years of experience working with a variety of different populations, including: children/youth, adults, and families.
Please remember, you are worthy and can achieve anything you set your heart and mind to.
