BA, BSW, MSW (pending

Registered Social Worker (RSW) (SK) 

I am a Social Worker also with a Bachelor Degree in Psychology.  I was born in British Columbia and was raised in Saskatoon from my middle years onward.
 

I enjoy working with children 5+, youth, young adults, and families to create a safe and supportive space to express freely and begin the healing process.  

I have experience working with:

  • Addictions

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Foster Care, Adoption

  • Outburst Behaviour/Behavioural Concerns

  • Relationship challenges

  • Self-harm

With a background in Behavioural Therapy, I use solution focused, strength based, and trauma-informed approaches within my practice.  

 

When working with younger individuals, I offer a variety of tools and exercises to prompt a deeper understanding of emotions, experiences, and coping abilities.

FOR CLIENTS WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES & NEURODIVERGENCE

I believe therapeutic support is for everyone.  If you or your loved one has received a diagnosis of an intellectual disability, developmental delay, prenatal exposure, ASD, or identifies as neurodivergent, I can’t wait to work with you! 

 

I enjoy supporting families and their loved ones as they navigate the unique challenges connected to experiencing life with a cognitive disability-related diagnosis.

 

I am happy to adapt our sessions to your specific needs by using tools such as visual aids, in-session activities, or conversation prompts so you will feel comfortable expressing your feelings and experiences with me in whatever way feels best for you!
