Closer Connections

Sometimes the biggest challenge is listening to our own quiet inner voice rather than what the world is yelling at us.

Facilitation of Professional Workshops

With experience in a number of organizational institutions, I am well suited to share my experiences with other professionals. Working in the education system, both as a classroom teacher and as a school counsellor for combined 17 years, provides rich material to share with others. As a sessional instructor at University of Manitoba, my facilitation skills were fine tuned. Working with various community agencies focusing on individual and family wellness, provides me with insight to the needs in this field. Owning and operating a private practice provides opportunity for further enhancing my knowledge base. I am flexible and accommodating to suit a wide variety of audiences regarding a wide variety of educational and mental wellness topics.

Participants attending workshops with me will ….

  • Learn from my blunders
  • Gain helpful insight regarding the topic
  • Walk away with immediately usable tools, strategies or materials
  • Have opportunity for questions and post workshop consultation
  • Likely laugh, a lot

Most recent professional development workshops include:

  • Counselling Skills, University of Manitoba, Sessional Instructor, July 2017, 2018
  • Finding Better Balance Through Self-Regulation, Manitoba Teacher’s Society 2016
  • Understanding Self-Regulation for Teachers, Gillis School 2013


Therapy fees

Include a full 60 minute hour at a rate of $90

Afterhours Apointments

There is no additional charge for evening and weekend appointments.

Other services

Attending school-based or community meetings, writing reports, and the like would be discussed at a prorated amount.

Contracted services are discussed on an individual basis and terms would be negotiated based on the expectations of service.

Payment can be made by cash, e-transfer or cheque and is due at the end of each session.

Maybe today is that day to start rewriting the first line in that story… maybe not tackling the whole story, perhaps just the first line.
