My Story

I am Metis from Treaty 8 territory and MNA Region 1. I have worked within Indigenous communities and non-Indigenous communities for over 15 years. My foundation of practice is based on the belief that “It shouldn’t hurt to be a child.” This applies not only to the children and adolescents I work with; it is also relevant to adults who have carried their early painful experiences into their adult lives that result in ways of coping that block happiness and health.

 

I combine Western psychological practices with Indigenous practices for a more holistic approach to healing and growth. These practices include Attachment therapy (psychodynamic), Person-centred therapy, play therapy, and Trauma and Neurosystems (NMT Model - Bruce Paerry). Addiction treatment; Body-based therapies (critical for trauma); Motivational Interviewing, CBT, DBT, Solution-focused therapy; and Cultural training through teachings by Indigenous knowledge keepers, elders, and ceremony. 

 

Qualifications include: Red Stream Advanced Play Therapy Training Certification (Play Therapist Certification Stream); Green Stream Foundations of Play Therapy Certification; EMDR Basic Training (certification - Supervision); EMDR Child Trauma Specialist Certification; EMDR and Sandtray Training; Theraplay and MIM Certification; Neurosequential Model Training Certification; Certified Connect Parent Training Trainer; Certified Circle of Security Parent Trainer; Solution-focused Therapy Certification; Bodynamics and SE supervision for five years; Indigenous cultural training (Cree, Blackfoot), Family Group Conferencing (FGC).
