Reaching out can be difficult

Am I the right fit for you?

Take your time to read my words and notice how you feel. Do you think I could be someone you could talk to? Work beside? You know yourself best, even if you are not in the right place right now. I ask you to observe your own power.


The Reason I do this work

I am a Neurodivergent Indigenous woman (Métis). I value self-work and accepting help as It brought me to where I am today. I left home at a young age and had many obstacles. It was during this time I found a few people on my own path who helped me see a different way to live. Perspective and compassion was gained as I realized "How can we be expected to have healthy relationships ourselves if we have never been taught?" It was my own self-work alongside my professional training that guides my practice today. I know what it is like not having examples of healthy relationships around me and the struggle that happens as you try to do this with your own family. I work with those brave enough to start. I say brave because there is no other way to acknowledge your readiness on this path. Maybe it is your choice to reach out, maybe you have had something happen that has changed the way you view the world. Whatever the reason, if the time is right for you, I look forward to connecting with you.

Who I see

I work with a range of Individuals from 10 and up. Over the years I have noticed my clients are mostly self identified helpers professionally or personally. You might see yourself as an Empath or highly sensitive. Currently in 2024 I work with individuals and families.

My Approach

Counselling with me is a collaborative process. Relationships are the foundation of my work. The relationship with yourself and the impact this has on the relationships around you. I believe there are times when we forget that we are ones with the best knowledge on ourselves. It is my job for you to be reminded of you strengths. I teach skills in communication, self worth, self trust. As we build a relationship together, our focus is on the both of us moving you towards feeling better about yourself.

Work with Me

I believe

“I believe kindness is the path to change and/or healing and the foundation to the way I operate. Learning how to be kind to self during the process is not only necessary, it’s non-negotiable.”
I strongly believe you are the wisest person you know. Your experience and your feelings are important signposts on your path. I look forward to walking beside you.

Who I work with



Who I work with

  • I help adults improve their mental health and build resilience in their relationships with others.
  • Adolescents experiencing depression, anxiety, grief loss or wishing to explore self-esteem/self-worth building.
  • I have also helped individuals and families navigate complex relationships.
  • From time to time, I take on clients for mediation. This can be helpful where communication has stopped, and you need help coming to a neutral ground.

For some clients, this work can look like creating good thoughts to produce better feelings and behaviours. There may be underlying grief from a loss recently or in the past.

Others want to feel better. My experience is that we tend to do better when we feel better.
