As an Occupational Therapist, I take a creative approach to my work. I begin by recognizing a person’s strengths and losses to collaborate with the person to set goals. Taking a gentle and holistic approach, we work together to address the traumatic losses and take steps forward.
My clinical experience includes assessing and treating children with autism and adults with brain injuries. I provide treatments in client’s homes and their communities. My educational background includes a M.Sc. in OT and a BASc. in Child Studies.
The clinical area of practice that I am most passionate about is Mindfulness-based Biofeedback, and Mindfulness-based Expressive Art Therapy. These holistic treatment modalities combine science, spirituality and creative expression. The growth and changes that can happen for clients who accept these treatment modalities are remarkable.
