Indigenous Trauma Therapist
Bio/Background: I am an Indigenous Intern taking my Master of Counselling at City University of Seattle. I have been in the human services field for over 22 years, supporting Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, including LGBTQ2S+ and other culturally diverse populations.

I have experience working with children, youth, adults, and families focusing on intergenerational trauma, grief and loss, parenting, substance use and multiple forms of abuse (sexual, family/partner violence).
It can be difficult to seek help when you are facing challenges in life, that is why it is important to find someone you will feel comfortable with. I am honoured every day to walk alongside people on their healing journey. It is my goal to create a safe and comfortable environment to offer support to you, whether it is your first time counseling or you are continuing your personal journey. I work from a holistic lens, I am trained in EMDR, solution focused therapy, and Attachment theory (psychodynamic perspective).
