I support children, youth, and adults through a range of mental health issues including trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, and self esteem. As a person with both Mohawk and settler ancestry, I view each person in a holistic way that considers the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of their being. My approach is often described as laid-back, gentle, and non-judgmental.
I have 10 years of experience in the field of social work and 20+ years of experience with horses. I have certificates as a Certified Trauma Integration Clinician through ATTCH and in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Level 1 through the Hincks Dellcrest. I am trained in the Fundamentals of EAGALA Model (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) which informs my equine therapy practice. I am trained in treating trauma and attachment issues and have attended workshops on suicide prevention, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, and Play Therapy.

Used in both office-based and equine-assisted counselling
With a trauma-informed lens, individuals can safely process and make sense of their trauma. This is done in a gentle and supportive way that involves drawing, cognitive restructuring, and grounding strategies.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
This is an evidence-based practice that seeks to help people identify negative thoughts and reframe them into positive thoughts. It is often integrated into trauma counselling but also stands alone, particularly to help with anxiety, depression, and self esteem.
Whether through meditation, artwork, or working with the horses, mindfulness is incorporated throughout my practice. Mindfulness helps people experience peace and become more attuned to their emotional needs.
