I am excited to work with the students at Third Academy this year. I enjoy the energy and fresh perspective of children and adolescents and look forward to assisting them to create positive changes in their lives.
I am currently completing my Master of Counselling (MC) degree from City University of Seattle in Calgary. I intend to specialize in counselling children, adolescents, and families following graduation in 2019.
My background experience (both personal and professional) is heavily-influenced by mindfulness and I counsel from a strengths-based perspective incorporating elements of narrative therapy, mindfulness, acceptance, and commitment therapy, and CBT. With younger children, I incorporate elements of play therapy and social skills development with a focus on developing a strong therapeutic relationship.
