I will hold a safe and non-judgemental space for you to bring your questions, your worries, your fears, your hopes and your dreams. There, we will work together to move toward growth and awareness. We will do this by remaining curious and open, and asking dynamic and thoughtful questions.
I have worked with:
- Children who have experienced abuse
- Children with problem sexual behaviour
- Grief and Loss
- Friendship issues
- Suicide Ideation
Approaches that I have studied and use in my work:
- Trauma-Informed Approach
- Attachment Theory
- Narrative Therapy
A large part of my work involves working with children, adults and families to increase social and emotional skills. These are the skills that we all need to be able to get along with others.
In addition to building these skills with children and adults in session, I support parents in helping their children develop social and emotional skills at home. In my workshops and in counselling sessions, I share practices that you take home to do with your family to encourage these social and emotional skills.
Social and Emotional Skills include:
- Perspective taking
- Emotional literacy
- Social Awareness
