I am a 4th generation settler with Scottish & English ancestry & am an aspiring anti-racist practitioner.
I am LGBTQIA2S safe, kink-aware & trauma-informed practitioner in Treaty 6 (Saskatoon) but licensed to work with anyone in Saskatchewan.
I have experience assisting folks to navigate conflict, relationship & intimacy satisfaction & 15 years of experience working with all types of mental health concerns & substance use disorders.
I also have personal & professional experience working with Emergency Services & healthcare personnel & particularly enjoy working with this population from both a trauma-informed perspective but also to maximize career performance.

Registered Social Worker (RSW) (SK) #2650
I describe my therapeutic model as feedback-oriented & 'solution-focused'.
My clinical training has involved Motivational Interviewing, Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) & Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
This means that together we will identify your automatic thoughts & emotions that lead to unwanted feelings & behaviours which interfere with your life.
Through this process, we will learn how to shift those thoughts to healthier, more self-compassionate thoughts & behaviours.
