My Approach
I am a registered Canadian Art Therapist ( #126-R-10) with the Canadian Art Therapy Association.  I am also a member of the American Art Therapy Association AATA, the Center for Object Relations (Seattle, WA) and I am currently training with MBT Mentalization Based Treatment Canada. 

Experience, Trainings and Interests

MBT Canada

The aim of MBT-C is to facilitate children’s emotion regulation and resilience by helping them develop their core capacities of mentalizing about self, others, and their relationships. Art and play therapy help children learn to express their feelings and the symbolic themes that emerge help the therapist better understand the roots of dysregulated behavior. 

Mentalizing strengthens the child’s sense of self and provides them with the skills necessary to respond more adaptively in their zones of difficulty.

Model of Therapeutics


The Neurosequential Model is a developmentally-informed, biologically-respectful approach to working with at-risk children.


The Neurosequential Model is not a specific therapeutic technique or intervention; it is a way to organize a child’s history and current functioning. The goal of this approach is to structure assessment of a child, the articulation of the primary problems, identification of key strengths and the application of interventions (educational, enrichment and therapeutic) in a way that will help family, educators, therapists and related professionals best meet the needs of the child.
