About this learning opportunity

Do your children seem overwhelmed and you know something has to change? In Simplifying: Creation of Calm we will discuss the process of simplification to help create calm in a child's everyday life by identifying circumstances that create a sense of disorientation and overwhelm. Research, strategies, and methods will be explored on how to create a calming environment for children while increasing feelings of connection and happiness.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.

About the facilitator(s)

I am a Registered Psychologist and Registered Play Therapist. In addition to my training as a therapist, I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and I worked as an elementary teacher for three local school districts before attending graduate school. Inclusively, I have over 17 years of experience working with children in a professional capacity. I am also the founder and Executive Director of Family Counselling Centres.

I have been working in private practice for the past 7 years in Alberta, primarily with children and their families. I also include animals in my
therapy and have developed a canine assisted and equine assisted therapy programs. 

I approach my clinical and consultative work with parents and professionals with an attachment and neurobiological lens: all of my work is based on the neurology of the brain and how ttachment is integral to adaptive functioning of both children and adults.

I am a passionate, empathetic, and experienced clinician here for my community to help children, teens, and adults heal and grow. I aim to have warm, respectful, and productive relationships with the clients I collaborate with, and I enjoy being part of the positive change that families experience.
