My Story

I am an Indigenous counsellor completing my Masters of Counselling at City University of Seattle. I have been in the human services field for over 24 years, supporting Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, including 2SLGBTQIA+ and other culturally diverse populations. I have experience as a Cultural Connector and Circle Keeper, including facilitating cultural competence training, cultural sensitivity, and Practice as Ceremony (Bent Arrow Traditional Healing Society). 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 honored 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 counselling or you are continuing your personal journey. I work with a cultural lens honoring the Medicine Wheel caring for the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of self. I am trained in EMDR, solution focused therapy, and Attachment theory (psychodynamic perspective).

 

Qualifications and training: I have an undergrad degree in Child and Youth Care, EMDR, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Trauma informed care, Traditional Parenting (Janet Fox). I have experience as a cultural connector and supervisor of Indigenous cultural support services programs.
