About me as an Individual Therapist…

As an educator, I have worked with children and families of all ages and stages of development. My background pairs nicely with counselling families as they navigate the diverse pathways of the educational system. My experience extends to helping parents through early identification, assessment and Individual Educational Planning (IEP), lessening the overwhelm for families with diverse learners. I love the neuroscience behind psychology and enjoy weaving it into my therapy sessions.

More About Me:

I have been married for 30 years and attribute our success to flexibility and a good sense of humour. I have four adult children; one daughter and three sons, and love walking or cuddling with my two dogs. I enjoy travel and learning, and exploring nature. I enjoy meeting new people and believe there is something to learn from every person who enters your life.
