Thank you for visiting my website and giving me the opportunity to introduce myself. Know that I strive towards providing a supportive and safe experience for all my clients. I have a deep appreciation towards wholistic wellness inspiring a counselling approach that encourages a more self-aware and engaged life supporting the wellness of the whole person. As an Indigenous person and counsellor, I bring both a personal and professional understanding that supports race-related stress, anxiety, depression and trauma to members of the BIPOC community (Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color).
My healing journey embracing my Indigenous identity and 18 years of professional counselling/therapy experience in Health, Indigenous, Post Secondary Education & Private Practice environments has nurtured an eclectic knowledge base of therapy practices to support diversity, intercultural, racial and intergenerational trauma awareness & responsiveness.
If you are feeling overwhelmed experiencing confusion, stress, anxiety, depression, grief or trauma related to discrimination, microaggressions, stereotypes, racism, racial bias, fear, isolation, intergenerational/historical trauma; I would like to support you.
