  • I am a roster member of the Hear the Child Society www.hearthechild.ca. I provide Hear the Child Reports (HTCR) which is a non-evaluative, verbatim report of a child’s views with respect to their parenting arrangements or any other issue about which the court, or the parent, which to have a child’s view heard.

 I am a BCACC Approved Clinical Supervisor with over 20 years of clinical experience working with Adults and in          Children’s Mental Health. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and a Registered Social Worker, with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Northern British Columbia and a Post Graduate Certificate in Infant-Parent Mental Health from the University of Massachusetts Boston. My practice is informed by theories of attachment, early development, somatic body-mind, and interpersonal neurobiology. I have extensive training in the Adult Attachment Interview, Child-Parent Psychotherapy, Video-Intervention, and Somatic Attachment Psychotherapy. My clinical supervision areas are focused in the area of attachment, disrupted attachment, childhood trauma, child-parent relationship and somatic attachment psychotherapy. My supervision style is reflective, relational and developmental. I view supervision as a ‘parallel process’, whereby the supervisor holds the supervisee, as the supervisee holds the client. The process can provide material for change, transformation and growth. I provide clinical and small group supervision/in-person or remote.
