"Door knobs represent openings and new opportunities”
I hold an MA in Child and Youth Care from Ryerson University, am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and I am a Certified Theraplay ™ Therapist through the Theraplay Institute in Chicago. I am also a certified trainer for child and youth care (CYC) practitioners in The Purposeful Use of Daily Life Events.
I have co-developed and delivered a number of innovative children’s groups, parent groups, parenting workshops as well as training programs for practitioners based on current trauma, attachment and neuroscience literature. I have also facilitated adult coming-out groups.
My MA research paper entitled “Putting Your Oxygen Mask on First: CYC Practitioner Self-regulation” has become required reading for CYC graduate students at Ryerson University.
I am member of OAMHP (Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals) and of the OACYC (Ontario Association of Child and Youth Care).
