RN, Hons. BScN, Psychotherapist
“You will survive, and you will find purpose in the chaos. Moving on doesn't mean letting go.”- Mary Van Hautel
I have over 30 years of clinical experience in the mental health field working within in-patient, community, and individual practice settings. As a person with lived experience of multiple losses, I am passionate about working alongside individuals who have experienced challenges with loss and helping them to integrate evidence-based approaches to care.
I strongly believe that the therapeutic alliance is the foundation of any working relationship. I utilize a collaborative strengths-based approach and am passionate about incorporating meaning-making practice.
Applications of practice may include grief literacy education, cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic and family of origin focus theory and mindfulness techniques.
