Shared Journey: Creative Counselling for Children & Youth
I help children and youth overcome challenges impeding their quality of life, so they can find joy in their lives, participate at home, school or in social life with confidence, and strengthen their relationships.
I have a deep belief that children do well if they can. As the adults in their lives, we can build on their lagging skills, celebrate their successes, and help guide them toward their preferred way of living. I believe that the foundation for healthy change and growth in a child’s life is through trusted relationships.

We look at the whole (learning, physically and mentally/emotionally) child as we come from personal and professional experiences when it comes to learning differences and this drives our mission-based charitable organization to support parents, professionals and youth!
