Since 2003, I have worked in a variety of roles supporting individuals and families to overcome a variety of challenges in both urban and rural settings. My career started on a crisis line in Edmonton, Alberta and since then my passion for helping others has taken me in various directions. This included providing therapy for youth, adults and families struggling with addictions, working in schools and general mental health settings offering child, youth, and family counselling, supporting northern communities in developing initiatives to combat family violence and bullying, and finally in 2012, specializing in the treatment of eating disorders.

I have also developed and delivered numerous workshops on a variety of topics related to addictions, eating disorders, improving family functioning, and emotional literacy.
Currently, I offer therapy for a variety of issues using a variety of interventions:
