Hello! I graduated from the University of Manitoba in 2008 with a Masters of Social Work. I am registered social worker with the Manitoba College and began my private practice in 2009. Since then, I have worked as a Mental Health Therapist in such First Nation communities as Pukatawagan, Sagkeeng, Swan Lake, Waywayseecappo, and Garden Hill. I have expertise in working with separated families and teenagers. Starting in 2021, I started working exclusively out of my office in Selkirk, Manitoba using in-person, telephone, and video counselling depending on the specific client’s needs.
I have been providing counselling for over 20 years. I specialize in individual (adolescents and adults) and family therapy. I can help with such challenging situations as grief, trauma, divorce, relationship conflict, anxiety, and depression. The form of therapy I use is a cognitive behavioural approach with aspects of solution-focused techniques. I am also trained using EMDR Therapy and I am on the First Nations and Inuit Health provider list.
I have had the honour of working with many different people from various cultures and orientations. I look forward to the opportunity to help you in a supportive and accepting therapeutic environment.
Thank-you for taking the time to read my BIO. I am here to help!
