​Hello.  I am the school counsellor at Boundary and Capilano Elementary. My favourite part of my job is spending time with kids. I have experience helping children work through difficult times in their lives using expressive art therapy which includes art, play, crafts and sand tray. I have also written booklets on strategies for managing anxiety, building positive friendships and tools for self-regulation. I am passionate about using Nature as part of my therapy with children as well as introducing them to mindfulness and meditation. I also love to knit, crochet and sew and you will often find me working with students on projects while we talk. I have recently started Animal Assisted Therapy with my dog, Addie, who is in training to be a therapy dog. When I am not at work I love to be with my family. I try to spend as much time as possible outside.
