Counselling, Consulting & Training Services


Are you thinking about adopting or a kinship arrangement but have a lot of process related questions? Perhaps you are seeking counselling services because you love your child and things have not worked out as you anticipated or expected?  We all need encouragement and support along life's journey as parents.


As an adoptive parent I understand the unique challenges adopting a child or a youth poses. As a Social Worker and Therapist I would like to further support you and your family, so that you can be the best parent you can be.  Drawing on developmental trauma theory and play therapy techniques I will work together with you and your child.


Perhaps you are a birth parent or an adoptee seeking counselling services and need to be supported and encouraged along the way.


All counselling sessions currently are by virtual means.  I provide counselling services with a focus on attachment therapy, to address the following issues:

  • Infertility and adoption
  • Grief and loss
  • Early trauma and neglect
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Attachment difficulties or challenges
  • Advocacy and education within the school boards
  • Emotional effects of parenting a child with a learning/attention disability
  • Emotional effects of parenting a child with medical concerns
  • Developmental concerns for children and youth
  • Openness agreements
  • Youth preparing for post-secondary education or training

Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary.

What we need is to love without getting tired.― Mother Teresa
