Hello.  I am the school counsellor at Boundary and Upper Lynn. 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 sandtray.  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.
