What I like most about my job:
Working together to solve a problem and learning from the people I meet.

Since 1995 I have been supporting adults, families, teens and children. I work at PPC and in a rural school division.  I believe in the power of searching for strengths and resiliency to build hope.   My counselling style has incorporated a variety of approaches such as cognitive behavioural therapy, family systems and solution focused.  People have described me as gentle, empathetic, yet respectfully direct and proactive.  As a visual artist, I encourage personal expression through various forms of art.  I like to laugh, see all sides, turn things around and find another chance.  What I know to be true is that life presents challenges and through these times we can grow and learn, for ourselves and for others.
